The Cho! animelo audiovisual website and the Nico Nico Douga online video service have started streaming a free eight-minute episode of the Candy Boy "romantic school comedy" on November 22. The short story revolves around Kanade and Yukino Sakurai, twin sisters in their second year in a Tokyo high school in the fall of 2007, and a freshman girl, the super-rich Sakuya Kamiyama.
Happy Lesson director Takafumi Hoshikawa and character designer Takashi Habe worked with AIC on this project. Hitomi Nabatame (School Rumble's Mikoto, Maburaho's Yuuna) and Ryoka Yuzuki (Chobits' Takako, Air's Minagi) star as the twins, and Emiri Katou (Lucky Star's Kagami, Demashitaa! Powerpuff Girls Z's Momoko/Hyper Blossom) plays Sakuya.
The anime staff are planning Candy Boy as the first "Anime 2.0" project, in which a music CD is bundled with an original video animation DVD. The Candy Boy anime episode will sell with a CD single of its theme song and "My Sweet Darlin'," both of which are sung by 18-year-old Korean artist Meilin.
