The official website for the A-Channel anime franchise began streaming a 15-second commercial for the A-Channel + smile original video anime on Wednesday. This new anime inspired by bb Kuroda's original A Channel manga will ship on Blu-ray Disc and DVD on March 21.
The A-Channel + smile release will bundle a CD with the new opening theme song "Balloon Theater" by Marina Kawano. It will also bundle a second CD with the new ending theme song "Smile Hōteishiki" (Smile Equation) by the main characters Run, Tōru, Nagi, and Yūko (as voiced by Kaori Fukuhara, Aoi Yūki, Yumi Uchiyama, and Minako Kotobuki, respectively). Another as-yet-unnamed song that the characters Run, Yutaka (Ai Matayoshi), and Miho (Momoko Saito) sing in the anime, as well as a fourth unnamed song from the four main characters, complete the second CD.
Like the television anime series that preceded it, the new video anime revolves around the "cute and relaxed" everyday life of four high school girls: the flighty Run, the reckless Tōru, the timid Yūko, and the level-headed Nagi.
