Kotoura-san Anime's 6th Web Episode Finishes Mini Show
posted on by Sarah Nelkin
The official YouTube channel for the Kotoura-san anime series began streaming the sixth and final web anime mini episode on Friday. Each of the weekly "Haruka no Heya" (Haruka's Room) mini episodes has the anime's heroine Haruka (Hisako Kanemoto) introducing one of the series' characters. In the final episode, Haruka wraps up the interviews by letting everyone she's interviewed so far say a quick word.
Manabe says he regrets not appealing to the audience more about his love for Haruka. Yuriko cries as she wonders if the beauty of ESP was conveyed to the viewers, and she feels that maybe it wasn't. She then jokes that next time, a “Yuriko's Room” program will start. Daichi introduces himself, but Haruka tells him that he's offscreen. When the camera is panned downward, it reveals a creature that is obviously not him. Hiyori says that she is worried that the show was canceled because of her appearance on the previous episode, to which Haruka does not deny. Finally, Haruka herself ends the program by saying that it's too bad that the mini program is ending, but she will meet everyone again at the main program.
Haruka is a girl who can read people's minds, and she joins the ESP club after transferring to a new school. Manabe (Jun Fukushima) is her classmate who has feelings for her. The main cast also includes Kana Hanazawa (Nisemonogatari, To Love-Ru) as Yuriko Mifune, Hiro Shimono (Ben-To, Baka and Test - Summon the Beasts) as Daichi Muroto, and Yurika Kubo (Love Live! School idol project, The Pet Girl of Sakurasou) as Hiyori Moritani.
Masahiko Ohta (Minami-ke, Mitsudomoe, Yuruyuri) is directing the anime at the studio AIC Classic. Takashi Aoshima (Minami-ke, Mitsudomoe, Yuruyuri) is in charge of the series scripts, while Takaharu Okuma (Mitsudomoe, Hanaukyo Maid-tai) is serving as the character designer and chief animation director. Enokids created the original four-panel online romantic comedy manga.
The anime premiered on Thursday, and Crunchyroll is streaming the anime outside Japan as it airs.
