The official website for the television anime adaptation of Riku Ranjō and Hiro Suzuhira's Akikan! romantic comedy light novels has announced on Sunday that production on an Akikan! OVA project has been green-lit. More details will be announced later. The television anime ran in Japan from January 3 to March 28.
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.
Update: More background information added.
