News Sora no Manimani Romantic Comedy's Promo Streamed (Updated)
posted on 2009-03-25 06:02 EDT by Egan Loo
The official website for the television anime adaptation of Mami Kashiwabara's Sora no Manimani manga has relaunched with a promotional video on Wednesday. In the story, Saku Ōyagi (Tomoaki Maeno) is a quiet bookworm who moves back to his former hometown as a high school freshman. He meets his childhood friend, Mihoshi Akeno (Kanae Itō), although a traumatic incident long ago had left their friendship in an awkward state. Despite this, Mihoshi brings Saku into the astronomy club she founded, and this sets the stage for the slapstick romantic comedy that ensues.
With the relaunch, the site has announced that the series will premiere on Japanese broadcast and satellite television in July. The site also has further information about the staff, the cast, and the characters. Shinji Takamatsu (Gintama, School Rumble) will direct the animators at Studio Comet. Hajime Watanabe (Hime-chan's Ribbon, Kodocha, School Rumble) will create the character designs and supervise the animation production.
