The ending theme song will change in each episode as well. Shizuka Itou is performing the opening theme song "Haru Ulalala Love yo Koi!!!" as her character Hinagiku Katsura.
The anime includes a more prominent role for Ayako Kawasumi, who voiced a minor role in the first anime series and dubbed Atene Tennōsu in the live-action Taiwanese version.
