Supernatural romantic comedy anime also stars Yui Ogura, Hisako Kanemoto

The December issue of Kadokawa's Monthly Dragon Age magazine announced on Saturday that Chinami Hashimoto and Junji Majima will star in the anime of Mari Matsuzawa's Saikin, Imōto no Yōsu ga Chotto Okashiin Da Ga (Lately, My Little Sister's Been Acting A Bit Strange, But.) manga. The magazine and the Comic Natalie website also unveiled screenshots from the upcoming series.

Newcomer Chinami Hashimoto stars as Mitsuki Kanzaki, a girl living with her step-brother Yūya (Junji Majima) after her mother remarries. One day, Mitsuki is possessed by the self-proclaimed spirit of a young girl, Hiyori Kotobuki (Yui Ogura). Hiyori (in Mitsuki's body) must fall in love with Yūya to move towards the "Gates of Heaven."

Hisako Kanemoto (Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet's Amy, Squid Girl's title character) also stars as Yukina Kiritani, Yūya's childhood friend. The anime will premiere in January.

Matsuzawa launched the manga in Monthly Dragon Age in 2010, and Kadokawa will publish the sixth compiled book volume on December 25. Kadokawa's Fujimi Shobo also streamed a television commercial for the manga:

Matsuzawa's other works include Hinadori Girl, Inukami!, and Sanbun no Ichi. The original Inukami light novel also inspired an anime, and Seven Seas published the manga in North America.
