Mikio Tanaka, the mayor of the Japanese city of Nanto, announced on Friday that the anime studio P.A. Works is making the original short Koitabi ~True Tours Nanto. The short tells three love stories set in Nanto.

Junji Nishimura (True Tears, Dog Days, Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan, Ranma ½) is directing the anime off a script by prolific writer Mari Okada (True Tears, AKB0048, anohana, Black Butler). The cast includes Kaori Nazuka, Ayahi Takagaki, Yuka Iguchi, Makoto Ishii, and Hiroyuki Yoshino. The group eufonius (True Tears, Clannad, Polyphonica) is performing the theme song.

The city's Jōhana-za theater will hold a screening of the completed short on April 28. The short will also air in the local area on that day, and it will also be viewable with a dedicated app.
