Animate and Amazon retailers are listing that the eighth volume of Takeru Kasukabe's Ore no Nōnai Sentakushi ga, Gakuen Love Come o Zenryoku de Jama Shiteiru (NouCome/My mental choices are completely interfering with my school romantic comedy) light novel series will bundle an unaired anime on Blu-ray Disc. Kadokawa will ship the limited-edition novel and Blu-ray Disc in May 2014 and it will retail for 3,990 yen (about US$40). The set will include a box with a new illustration by light novel illustrator Yukiwo.
The television anime adaptation of the light novel series premiered in Japan on October 9. Takayuki Inagaki is directing the anime at animation studio Diomedea from scripts by Hiroko Kanasugi. Chief animation director Hiroyuki Saida is also providing the character designs.
The story centers around Kanade Amakusa (played by Toshiyuki Toyonaga), a boy cursed with the mental power of "absolute multiple-choice" — a multiple-choice quiz will suddenly appear in his mind, and the choice he makes will become his reality. For example, he would have to choose between going nude from the waist up or the waist down in school. While in school, he is given another choice: 1) A beautiful girl will fall before him or 2) he will fall from the rooftop in female clothes. He chooses option 1, and a blonde girl named Chocolat (Kaori Sadohara) falls before him.
Additional cast members include Yui Kondou as Furano Yukihira, Ayumi Tsuji as Ōka Yūōji, Misato as Konagi Yawakaze, Naomi Ōzora as Yuragi Hakoniwa, Hiromi Igarashi as Seira Kokubyakuin, Rei Matsuzaki as Ayame Reikadō, Akiko Yajima as Utage Douraku, and Jouji Nakata as Narrator.
Crunchyroll is streaming the series outside of Japan as it airs.
Kasukabe launched the light novel series in 2012 with art by Yukiwo, and Kadokawa's Sneaker Bunko label published the sixth novel on September 28.
