School Newspaper Anime Jinsei's Staff, Designs Unveiled

posted on by Lynzee Loveridge

The official website for the Jinsei (La Bonne Vie) anime revealed the series' staff and character designs.

Keiichiro Kawaguchi (Sket Dance, OniAi, Hunter × Hunter -The Last Mission-) will direct the adaptation of Ougyo Kawagishi's light novel series at studio feel (Listen to Me, Girls. I Am Your Father!, Outbreak Company). Naruhisa Arakawa (Outbreak Company, MAOYU, Steel Angel Kurumi) will be in charge of series composition and Keiichirō Ōchi, Naruhisa Arakawa, and Tsuyoshi Tamai will write the scripts. Tomoyuki Shitaya (Hatsukoi Limited, Bakuman.) will adapt Meruchi Nanase's original character designs.

Yūki Akamatsu

Rino Endō

Fumi Kujō

Ikumi Suzuki

Ayaka Nikaidō

The story centers around Yūki Akamatsu, a boy who joins the staff of his school's second newspaper. The editor-in-chief Ayaka Nikaidō immediately assigns him to the life (Jinsei) advice column. Three girls — the science representative Rino Endō, the liberal arts representative Fumi Kujō, and the physical education representative Ikumi Suzuki — answer requests from students about whatever is troubling them.

Kawagishi started the light novel series with illustrations by Meruchi Nanase in 2012. The December issue of Shogakukan's Sunday GX magazine teased that an "a__me adaptation" project was in the works. The series will premiere on Tokyo MX, Yomiuri TV, Chukyo TV, BS-11, and other stations in July.
