Media Factory's official YouTube channel began streaming a 30-second commercial for the upcoming anime adaptation of Hajime Kamoshida's Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo romantic comedy light novel series. The new ad revolves around the two main characters, Sorata and Mashiro, played by Yoshitsugu Matsuoka (The [email protected]'s Shouta, Sword Art Online's Kirito) and Ai Kayano (Guilty Crown's Inori, anohana: The Flower We Saw That Day's Menma) respectively.
The television anime will premiere on October 8. The series will be directed by Atsuko Ishizuka at J.C. Staff, and Mari Okada is in charge of the series scripts.
Media Factory announced the anime in April, and also revealed the cast list. The school romantic comedy revolves around a second-year high school student named Sorata Kanda who lives in Sakura-sou, the dormitory for problem children at Sorata's school. One day, Mashiro Shiina — a cute girl who happens to be also a cosmopolitan, brilliant artist — moves into Sakurasou.
Sorata thinks to himself that he should protect Mashiro from the weirdos at Sakurasou, but Mashiro has a surprising secret: she has no idea how to take care of herself. She gets lost if she goes out, and her room is a complete mess. Sorata's dorm mates designate him as the "master" of Mashiro, and thus, an ordinary boy and a brilliant girl must live like "a master and his pet."
