The publisher Kodansha began streaming an 81-second promotional video for the original anime DVD (OAD) bundled with the 18th volume of Kouji Seo's Kimi no Iru Machi: A town where you live manga on Tuesday. The video features the theme song "Tasogare Kōsaten" (Twilight Intersection) by Hello! Project singer Erina Mano, who also voices the character Haruna Koba.
Yasuhiro Yoshiura (Time of Eve) is serving as chief director, while Hiroshi Kobayashi (Yozakura Quartet) is the director at Tatsunoko Productions. Momoko Murakami (Pretty Rhythm Aurora Dream) is writing the script. Ryuusuke Chayama (Time of Eve) is designing the characters, and Akira Takata (Natsume Yūjin-Chō) is the chief animation director. Satoko Kimura (Yozakura Quartet) is in charge of color design.
Seo launched the school romantic comedy in Weekly Shōnen Magazine in 2008 after ending his earlier Suzuka manga in the same magazine in 2007. The magazine announced the first anime DVD in August as a collaboration with Shōbara, the city in Hiroshima Prefecture where Seo's birthplace is now located.
The story begins when a girl named Yuzuki Eba (voiced by Megumi Nakajima) suddenly moves from Tokyo into the countryside home of a high school boy named Haruto Kirishima (Yoshimasa Hosoya).
The 17th manga volume with the first original anime DVD shipped on March 16, while the 18th manga volume with the second DVD will ship on June 15.
