The North American anime licensing company Sentai Filmworks announced on Wednesday that it has licensed the Acchi Kocchi television anime series. The company plans to release the 13-episode series under the name Place to Place later this year on subtitled DVD and through digital outlets.
The story of Ishiki's original four-panel manga follows a tsundere (initially aloof and abrasive, but later kind-hearted) girl named Tsumiki (voiced by Rumi Ookubo), the most unsociable eyeglasses-wearing boy named Io (Nobuhiko Okamoto), and their classmates.
Fumitoshi Oizaki (Astarotte's Toy, Romeo × Juliet) directed the series at AIC, and Nobuhiko Tenkawa (A Certain Scientific Railgun episode writer, Mayo elle Otokonoko) handled the series composition and scripts. Atsuko Watanabe (Cat God/Nekogami Yaoyorozu) served as the character designer, and Masaru Yokoyama (Freezing, Arakawa Under the Bridge, Joshiraku) handled the music. The series also stars Hiromi Konno as Kana Miyama, Hitomi Nabatame as Mayoi Katase, and Junko Iwao as Kikue Sakuragawa.
The show originally premiered in Japan in April 2012.
