Nozoki Ana Anime Blu-ray to Add New Segment
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
The official website for the Nozoki Ana original video anime revealed on Thursday that there will be a "Sexy Extended Edition" Blu-ray that will include an additional new segment. The anime will first be bundled on DVD with the limited edition of the manga's 13th and final volume on February 28. It will then be released on Blu-ray on May 24.
Wakoh Honna's original manga centers around Tatsuhiko Kido, a young man who moves from the countryside to Tokyo to attend a vocational school in the spring. He discovers a tiny hole in a wall of his new room, and although he looks in from time to time, he sees nothing at first. However, one day, he spies a girl.
According to Getchu.com, the anime will star Daisuke Hirakawa (School Days' Makoto, Samurai Girls' Muneakira Yagyū) as protagonist Tasuhiko, Sara Kirigamine as Emiru Ikuno, and Mayu Hino as Yuri Kotobiki. Katsuhiko Nishijima (Agent Aika, Najica Blitz Tactics, Project A-Ko) is directing the anime at Studio Fantasia (Lagrange - The Flower of Rin-ne Season 2, Rumbling Hearts, Stratos 4). Masahiro Okubo (Bleach, Sugar Sugar Rune) wrote the scripts, and Masaaki Sakurai (Demonbane) designed the characters.
The Blu-ray will retail for 5,040 yen (about US$55).
