Crunchyroll Adds Nakaimo - My Little Sister is Among Them! TV Anime

posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Series based on Hajime Taguchi's romantic comedy light novels premiered in Japan on July 6

The media distribution service Crunchyroll announced on Wednesday that it will stream the NAKAIMO - My Little Sister Is Among Them! (Kono Naka ni Hitori, Imōto ga Iru!) television anime series. New episodes of the series will stream every Friday at 11:30 p.m. EDT. The series will be available for viewers in North America. NAKAIMO - My Little Sister Is Among Them! premiered in Japan on July 6. Crunchyroll is currently streaming the first two episodes in the series.

Takahiro Sakurai stars in the series as Shōgo, and Kaori Ishihara, Ayane Sakura, Ayana Taketatsu, Asuka Ōgame, and Rina Hidaka voice the five female leads and sing the ending theme song "Heavenly Lover."

Hajime Taguchi's original light novels are inspiring the television anime series. The original light novels center around Shōgo Mikadono, the son of an industrial magnate named Kumagorō Mikadono who passed away. As a final wish, Kumagorō gave Shōgo a condition before Shōgo can inherit the family legacy — find a female mate at school. Shōgo transfers into a school to fulfill that condition. However, he learns that he has a younger sister who was separated at birth. He does not know what his long-lost sister looks like, but she happens to be one of the students at his new school.

Taguchi launched the light novel series in 2010, and the sixth volume shipped in March. Munenori Nawa (R-15, Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu) is directing the series, and Go Zappa (Chocotto Sister, Koihime Musō) is responsible for the series scripts. Kenichirou Katsura (Macross 7, ToHeart2) is adapting the original novel illustrations by CUTEG (Kokoro Connect manga) for animation. Katsura is also the chief animation director for the project at Studio Gokumi (Oda Nobuna no Yabō, Koe de Oshigoto!).
