The official Twitter account and website for the Saenai Heroine no Sodate-kata anime announced on Saturday that Kanta Kamei (Bunny Drop, Nanana's Buried Treasure, Oreshura, Tales of Vesperia: The First Strike) is directing the anime at A-1 Pictures.
Fumiaki Maruto (White Album 2) wrote the original light novel series. Tomoya Aki, an otaku who is working part-time to earn enough money to buy anime on Blu-Ray, meets a beautiful girl on his way home during spring vacation. He eventually models the heroine of his own dojin game after her. However, he finds out a month later that the girl is in fact his classmate, and he doesn't know her name. He learns that the girl — named Megumi — actually is hardly noticed by others. Tomoya also has no artistic ability or writing skills, so he asks ace of the art club Eriri Spencer Sawamura to provide the art, as well as the honor student Utaha Kasumigaoka to write the scenario. Can they produce a decent game for Comic Market?
Saori Ōnishi (Senki Zesshō Symphogear G 's Ayumi, The Pet Girl of Sakurasou's Shiho) will star as Eriri Spencer Sawamura, and Ai Kayano (Anohana's Menma, Guilty Crown's Inori) will play Utaha Kasumigaoka. Maruto himself is writing the scripts, while Hajime Hyakkoku (K-ON!, GJ Club) of F.M.F is composing the music.
The anime will premiere next January in Fuji TV's Noitamina block.
