Kanojo ga Flag o Oraretara Anime's 3rd Promo Highlights Kikuno

Kana Asumi plays childhood friend in April anime

The official website for the anime of Touka Takei's Kanojo ga Flag o Oraretara light novel series began streaming the third promotional video and television commercial on Thursday.

The video features narration by Kana Asumi as Kikuno Shōkanji, a childhood friend of the protagonist Sōta Hatate. She tells Sōta that Kanojo ga Flag o Oraretara ("Gaworare" for short) is being made into a television anime that will premiere this April. She act like a doting older sister to Sōta. Because she studied abroad for a year, she ended up in the same school year as Sōta when she came back to Japan.

Takei's original romantic comedy light novel series revolves around Sōta Hatate, a boy who has the unique ability to see "Flags" above the heads of other people. The "Flags" mark critical crossroads in people's lives — when the choices they make will determine love, friendship, victory, and even death. He transfers into Tokyo's elite Hatagaya Academy, but instead of living by himself in the boys' dormitory, he ends up living with five beautiful girls under one roof.

The series will star:

Ryota Ohsaka as Sōta Hatate Ibuki Kido as Nanami Knight Bladefield
Ai Kayano as Akane Mahōgasawa Kana Asumi as Kikuno Shōkanji
Kana Hanazawa as Megumu Tōzokuyama Yōko Hikasa as Rin Eiyūzaki
Ayaka Suwa as Ruri Ninjabayashi Aoi Yūki as Serika Ginyūin

Ayumu Watanabe (Space Brothers) is directing the anime off scripts supervised by Takashi Aoshima (Kotoura-san, Yuruyuri - Happy Go Lily). Shizue Kaneko (Mysterious Girlfriend X) is designing the characters. The anime will be produced by Hoods Entertainment (The Qwaser of Stigmata, Manyū Hiken-chō). Aoi Yūki will perform the opening theme song.
