Koi-ken! Mobile Dating Simulation Game Gets Anime
posted on by Egan Loo
Koi-ken!, a popular dating simulation game on DeNA's social networking site Mobage, is being adapted into a mobile phone anime early next year. The game, which began in January of 2010 and has a 3-million-user base, depicts the campus life of members of Renai Kenkyūkai (The Society for the Study of Romance) or "Koi-ken."
The voice cast of the game and the Koi-ken! ~Watashi-tachi Anime ni Nacchatta!~ (Koi-ken! We've Been Animated!) anime includes Haruka Tomatsu (Kaede Wakamiya), Kaori Nazuka (Nagisa Toyama), Ryoko Shintani (Sakura Akagi), Aki Toyosaki (Wakaba Otowa), Kikuko Inoue (Haruka Kikui), Rie Kugimiya (Mari Kikui), and Sakura Tange (Hotaru Yamabuki). The protagonist's "extremely ordinary" high school life changes overnight when he encounters Kaede, a girl who is returning from living abroad and transferring into the school.
