The official website for the television anime adaptation of Riku Ranjō and Hiro Suzuhira's Akikan! romantic comedy light novels has revamped itself on Tuesday and has begun streaming a short commercial. The commercial announces that the television series will premiere on January 3 at midnight, although the website also notes that the first episode will be previewed on the Bandai Channel and Yahoo! Japan websites, as well as on other Japanese venues, starting on December 30.
The story revolves around a typical high school boy named Kakeru Daichi and the can of melon juice soda that he bought from a vending machine. The can suddenly transforms into a beautiful but standoffish girl that Kakeru nicknames "Melon," and more "Akikan" ("empty can" or "A-Machine") girls appear. However, Akikan girls need to be infused with carbon dioxide from kissing to survive.
