Recently, my sister is unusual/ImoCho Anime's 1st Promo Streamed

posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Chinami Hashimoto, Yui Ogura star in story about sister possessed by spirit of young girl

The official website for the anime adaptation of Mari Matsuzawa's Saikin, Imōto no Yōsu ga Chotto Okashiin Da Ga. (Recently, my sister is unusual. or ImoCho.) manga began streaming the show's first promotional video on Thursday. The video previews Chinami Hashimoto, Yui Ogura, and Hisako Kanemoto's opening theme song "BINKAN♡Attention."

The story revolves around a girl named Mitsuki Kanzaki (played by Chinami Hashimoto), who lives 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 television anime will premiere on January 4, and a live-action film adaptation of the manga will open next spring.

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.
