News Kimi to Boku Anime to Be Split Into 2 13-Episode Seasons

The website of the Japanese toy retailer Takarajima Create Group has posted a Bandai solicitation sheet that indicates that the Kimi to Boku anime series will be split in two cours (kūru or quarters of the year), each with 13 episodes. The first half will air from October to December, and then the anime will resume from April until its conclusion in June. The solicitation sheet is for seven minature plates that will be offered in capsule toy vending machines in early November.
Based off of Kiichi Hotta's Kimi to Boku manga, the anime was announced in Square-Enix's Monthly G Fantasy magazine in March.
The story revolves around four teens — the good-looking twins Yuta and Yuki Asaba, the effeminate Shun Matsuoka, and the class head Kaname Tsukahara — who have known each other since early childhood. While they are not necessarily good or bad friends, they continue to hang out well into high school. The half-Japanese transfer student Chizuru Tachibana joins the circle of friends in this comedy about the everyday life of adolescence.
