Photo Kano PSP Dating Game Gets TV Anime by Madhouse
posted on by Egan Loo
A television anime adaptation of Kadokawa Games, Enterbrain, and Dingo's Photo Kano PSP dating simulation game has been officially announced. Madhouse is animating the anime, and the television stations TBS and BS-TBS will run it. Akitoshi Yokoyama (Marimo no Hana: Saikyō Butō-ha Shōgakusei Densetsu) is directing and supervising the series scripts, and Mae Shimada is designing the characters.
In the game, the player is an ordinary second-year high school student named Kazuya Maeda who gets a single-lens reflex camera at the end of summer vacation. He begins taking pictures of the girls at his school, and the photos may lead to romance.
The cast of the anime will include:
- Nobunaga Shimazaki as Kazuya Maeda
- Kanae Itō as Haruka Niimi
- Mai Nakahara as Aki Muruto
- Hisako Kanemoto as Mai Sakura
- Kaori Mizuhashi as Hikari Sanehara
- Chiwa Saito as Nonoka Masaki
- Asuka Ōgame as Rina Yunoki
- Miyuki Sawashiro as Tomoe Misumi
- Mariya Ise as Kanon Maeda
- Aya Endo as Momoko Ōtani
The official website for Shufunotomo's Seiyū Grand Prix magazine had listed the game under the "Featured TV Anime Interviews" section of the next-issue preview in May, only to remove that reference before the issue actually shipped.
Enterbrain's Famitsu website also reports that a new version called Photo Kano Kiss will arrive on the PS Vita next spring with improved graphics and game system, as well as a newly added scenario. The new "Love Love Days" scenario will depict the week after the confession of love from the main game.
Update: More information added.
