television anime adaptation of Haruka Kawachi's Natsuyuki Rendezvous manga began streaming the series' opening clip on Wednesday. The 98-second video features Yūya Matsushita's opening theme song "See You."
The North American anime licensing company Sentai Filmworks announced on Saturday that it has licensed the series. Crunchyroll also revealed on Friday that it will stream the anime as it airs in Japan.
Kou Matsuo (Kurenai, Red Garden) is directing the series, and Junichiro Taniguchi (Puella Magi Madoka Magica, Yondemasu yo, Azazel-san) is serving as both character designer and chief animation director. Dogakobo is animating the series. Aimer (No. 6) will perform the show's ending theme song "Anata ni Deawanakereba ~Natsuyuki Fuyuhana~."
Kawachi's Natsuyuki Rendezvous manga ran in Shodensha's josei manga magazine Feel Young from its July 2009 issue to its January 2012 issue. The romantic drama collected in four volumes tells the story of a love triangle between Hazuki, a young man who works part time at a flower store, Rokka, the widow who owns the store, and the ghost of Shimao, Rokka's deceased husband. Hazuki will be voiced by Yūichi Nakamura, Rokka will be played by Sayaka Ohara, and Shimao will be played by Jun Fukuyama.
The series will premiere on Fuji-TV's late-night programming block Noitamina on July 5.
