posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Japanese television channel BS11 began running a commercial for the anime adaptation of Yuyuko Takemiya's Golden Time light novels. Protagonist Banri Tada (voiced by Makoto Furukawa) and Kōko Kaga (voiced by Yui Horie) narrate the commercial.
The school romantic comedy of Golden Time revolves around Banri Tada, a college student who lost all of his memories upon graduating his high school. The story follows Banri, Kōko Kaga (voiced by Yui Horie), a girl whose seemingly perfect looks belies her hidden regrets, Kōko's significant other Mitsuo Yanagisawa (Kaito Ishikawa), and other students at Banri's college in Tokyo, including Nana Hayashida (Ai Kayano), Chinami Oka (Ibuki Kido), Nijigen-kun (Takahiro Hikami), and Nana-senpai (Satomi Satou)
GENCO is producing the series with J.C.STAFF handling the animation. Chiaki Kon (Makai Ouji: Devils and Realist, When They Cry - Higurashi) is directing the series, while Fumihiko Shimo (Fate/stay night) is in charge of the series scripts. Shinya Hasegawa (Revolutionary Girl Utena) is designing the characters. Jin Aketagawa (Code Geass: Akito the Exiled) is the sound director at Magic Capsule, and Yukari Hashimoto (Toradora!) is composing the music.
The anime will premiere October 3, but it will not run on BS11 until October 11.
