OreShura Romantic Comedy Anime's Ad Aired

Boy caught between childhood friend & "fake" girlfriend in anime debuting Saturday

The AT-X television channel began running a commercial for the Ore no Kanojo to Osananajimi ga Shuraba Sugiru (Oreshura) romantic comedy anime. The ad features the opening theme song "Girlish Lover."

Yūji Yūji's original light novel series centers around a boy named Eita (played by Ryota Ohsaka). He has a childhood friend named Chiwa (Chinatsu Akasaki) who is like a little sister to him. A silver-haired girl named Masuzu (Yukari Tamura) returns from overseas and makes Eita her "fake" boyfriend to fend off unwanted attention. This sets off a feud between Chiwa and Masuzu for Eita's affections.

Kanta Kamei (Bunny Drop, Tales of Vesperia ~The First Strike~) is directing the anime at A-1 Pictures. Tatsuhiko Urahata (Natsu-iro Kiseki, Saki, Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere) is in charge of the series scripts, and Mai Otsuka (Shakugan no Shana, Hanamaru Kindergarten, Astarotte's Toy) is adapting LLO's original character designs. Masatomo Ota (Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha, B Gata H Kei - Yamada’s First Time, Carnival Phantasm theme songs) is composing the music.

The four main voice actresses — Akasaki (Chiwa), Tamura (Masuzu), Hisako Kanemoto (HIMEKA) and Ai Kayano (Ai) — performed "Girlish Lover" under the group name "Mizukara o Enshutsu Suru Otome no Kai." Tamura is also contributing the ending theme song.

The anime will premiere on Tokyo MX TV and other stations on Saturday. (AT-X will then premiere it on January 17.)
