Higurashi's Chiaki Kon, J.C.STAFF animate college romantic comedy by Toradora's Takemiya

The cast and staff for Golden Time, the Fall anime inspired by a light novel series from Toradora! author Yuyuko Takemiya, were announced on Tuesday:

Yui Horie as Kōko Kaga

Makoto Furukawa as Banri Tada

Ai Kayano as Nana Hayashida

Kaito Ishikawa as Mitsuo Yanagisawa

Ibuki Kido as Chinami Oka

Takahiro Hikami as Nijigen-kun

Satomi Satou as Nana-sempai

Genco will be producing the series with J.C.STAFF handling the animation. Chiaki Kon (Makai Ouji: Devils and Realist, When They Cry - Higurashi) is directing the series, while Fumihiko Shimo (Fate/stay Night) will be in charge of the series scripts. Shinya Hasegawa (Revolutionary Girl Utena) is designing the characters. Jin Aketagawa (Code Geass: Akito the Exiled) is the sound director at Magic Capsule, and Yukari Hashimoto (Toradora!) will be composing the music.

The school romantic comedy of Golden Time revolves around Banri Tada, a college student who lost all of his memories upon graduating his high school. The story follows Banri, Kōko Kaga (a girl whose seemingly perfect looks belies her hidden regrets), Kōko's significant other Mitsuo Yanagisawa, and other students at Banri's college in Tokyo.

Takemiya launched the novel series in 2010, and ASCII Media Works published the sixth main volume in July. The first five main volumes and two spinoff volumes have 710,000 copies in print. Eeiji Komatsu illustrates the novel volumes, while Umechazuke has been serializing a manga adaptation in ASCII Media Works' Monthly Comic Dengeki Daioh magazine since 2011. Takemiya's Toradora! light novel series also inspired an anime.

The anime will premiere this October.
