The North American anime licensing company Maiden Japan announced on Thursday that it has licensed the Myself; Yourself television anime series. The company will work with Section23 Films to release the series digitally and on subtitled DVD.
The 13-episode series adapts Yeti's romance adventure game of the same name. The series revolves around Sana Hidaka, who left his hometown of Sakuranomori only to return five years later to finish high school while living alone in an apartment owned by his parents. Sana worries if his old friends will still recognize him and want to be friends with him again.
Yasuhiro Kuroda (Kämpfer, Modern Magic Made Simple) directed the anime under chief director Tetsuaki Matsuda (episode director for Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal) at animation studio Dogakobo with scripts by Go Zappa (Koihime Musō, NAKAIMO - My Little Sister Is Among Them!). The series starred Shinnosuke Tachibana as Sana Hidaka, Takehito Koyasu as Syūsuke Wakatsuki, Ami Koshimizu as Nanaka Yatsushiro, Ayumi Murata as Hinako Mochida, Mai Nakahara as Asami Hoshino, Megumi Toyoguchi as Yuzuki Fujimura, Tomoko Kaneda as Aoi Oribe, and Yukari Tamura as Syuri Wakatsuki.
The original game shipped on the PlayStation 2 console in 2007, and a sequel shipped for the PS2 in 2009.
