Ishida and Asakura Comedy Anime's Promo Streamed

posted on by Egan Loo
2-minute "heartwarming boys-love gag" anime shorts to premiere on Sunday

The official Niconico channel for the Ishida and Asakura (Ishida to Asakura) anime began streaming a promotional video on Wednesday. Rayli performs the anime's theme song "Dokidokidoku" in the video.

Masao's original "heartwarming boys-love gag" manga centers on the friendship of high school boys Asakura (Weiß Survive's Nobuhisa Nakamoto) who "wants to become a teacher at a girls' school in the future" and Ishida (Kamisama Kiss's Shūta Morishima) who "wants to become a florist with Asakura in the future." Tooru Sakurai and Saima Nakano will play classmates Yamada and Satō, respectively, while Sumi Shimamoto (Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind, Lupin III: The Castle of Cagliostro) will play Kinoshita-sensei.

The manga debuted in both the main Young King magazine and Monthly Young King in 2011, and it ended after 15 installments in the September 2012 issue on July 19. Shonengahosha published the second compiled book volume with a previously unpublished ending last month.

Pippuya (Kachō no Koi) is directing and storyboarding the anime at the studios Dax Production and Hotline (Shiba Inuko-san). Kenichi Yamashita (Ginga e Kickoff!!, Ginga Densetsu Weed) is in charge of the scripts, and PEN is designing the characters.

The two-minute anime shorts will premiere on the Tokyo MX TV station on Sunday, January 6 at 10:27 p.m. Crunchyroll will be streaming the anime overseas as it airs in Japan. Rayli will join a live concert with other performers on January 18 after the anime premieres.
