posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Media distribution service Crunchyroll announced on Friday that it will stream the television anime adaptation of Rikō Anzai's four-panel manga Oneechan ga Kita. The company will stream the series on Wednesdays starting on January 8 at 3:00 p.m. EST for premium users worldwide outside of Japan. Free users worldwide outside of Japan will be able to watch new episodes one week later.
The story revolves around Tomoya Mizuhara (played by Aimi Terakawa), a 13-year-old boy who suddenly gains a big sister when his father remarries. 17-year-old Ichika (Juri Nagatsuma) is a little strange, and her affection for Tomoya is rather overwhelming, if not scary. On top of things, Ichika's friend Ruri (Omi Minami) is the ultimate sadist. Then there is Ichika's big-breasted quarter-Japanese friend Marina (Marina Inoue).
The show also stars Ibuki Kido as Mina Fujisaki, Yu Kobayashi as Mitsuru Hanazono, Misuzu Togashi as Takayoshi Hayasaka, Fumi Morisawa as Yūko Mizuhara, Kenji Hamada as Masaya Mizuhara, and Kouji Takahashi as Sōichirō Fuji.
Yoshihide Yuuzumi (Yurumates3Dei) is directing the series at studio C2C (Yurumates3Dei) and Takeshi Oda (Yurumates3Dei) is designing the characters. The series will run for 12 three-minute episodes beginning January 8 on Tokyo MX TV. Misuzu Togashi is writing and performing the theme song "Piece." Fūga Hatori composed and arranged the song, and is also composing the music for the series.
The manga began in Manga Life, although it has also appeared in the sibling magazine Manga Life MOMO. Takeshobo will publish the third book volume of the manga in January.
