posted on by Andrew Osmond
The website Anime on Demand is streaming the television anime adaptation of Wataru Watari's Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Come wa Machigatteiru. (My youth romantic comedy is wrong as I expected) light novel series under the name My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU. The first episode is available here.
On its facebook page, Anime on Demand said the series would be the first of four titles to be screened from the Spring 2013 season. These broadcasts would be "free for one last season now before we announce some cool changes," the site said.
Watari's romantic comedy revolves around an antisocial high school student named Hachiman Hikigaya with a distorted view on life and no friends or girlfriend. A teacher gets Hachiman to join the volunteer "service club," which happens to have the school's prettiest girl, Yukino Yukinoshita.
The anime has the same cast as the light novel's earlier drama CD adaptation, with Takuya Eguchi (Inu x Boku SS) as Hachiman Hikigaya, Saori Hayami (Bakuman) as Yukino Yukinoshita, Nao Tōyama (The World God Only Knows) as Yui Yuigahama, Mikako Komatsu (K) as Saika Totsuka, and Aoi Yūki (Gosick) as Komachi Hikigaya. In addition, Nobuyuki Hiyama (Eden of the East) will play Yoshiteru Zaimokuza, while Ryoka Yuzuki will play Shizuka Hiratsuka.
Ai Yoshimura (episode director on Gintama, Oreimo) will be directing the series at Brains Base, while Shôtarô Suga (Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, Lagrange - The Flower of Rin-ne) will be supervising the scripts, and Masaru Shindō (animation director on Penguindrum, Sengoku Collection) will be handling character designs.
The anime premiered on April 4 in Japan.
