News Anime on Demand to Stream Photo-Kano
Anime on Demand has confirmed to ANN that it will be streaming Mad House's television anime adaptation of Kadokawa Games, Enterbrain, and Dingo's Photo Kano PSP dating simulation game. (The website UK Anime Network reported that a page for the series had been seen on the AoD site.)
In the original game which inspired the series, the player is an ordinary second-year high school student named Kazuya Maeda (played by Nobunaga Shimazaki) who gets a single-lens reflex camera at the end of summer vacation. He begins taking pictures of the girls at his school, and the photos may lead to romance. The show also stars Akiko Hasegawa, Asuka Ōgame, Aya Endo, Ayahi Takagaki, and Chiwa Saito.
Akitoshi Yokoyama (Marimo no Hana: Saikyō Butō-ha Shōgakusei Densetsu) is directing and supervising the series scripts, and Mae Shimada (key animator for Gosick, Bleach) is designing the characters and serving as chief animation director. Mina Kubota (Kaleido Star, A Letter to Momo) is handling the show's music. hayatokaori performs the opening theme song "Koisuru Lens" (Lens of Love).
The anime series premiered in Japan on April 4.
