Nozoki Ana Spinoff Nozo x Kimi's Anime Previewed in Video

posted on by Egan Loo

Shogakukan began streaming the first promotional video for the original video anime (OVA) project bundled with Wakoh Honna's Nozoki Ana spinoff manga Nozo x Kimi on Wednesday. The special edition of the manga's fourth volume will bundle the first OVA episode by the studio ZEXCS on August 18.

Text: Kimio and Nozomi: Two people who attend the same high school.
Nozomi: Once I send an email, you open the curtain.
Text: The two have a secret they can't tell anyone...
Nozomi: Showing ourselves to each other as we are — that's a rule for the "showing ourselves to each other game."
Text: That secret is the "showing ourselves to each other game."
Nozomi: Yours really are big!
Text: A girl who can't hold confidence in herself.
Yuki: Why did they get this big...?
Yuko: Let me join the "showing ourselves to each other game."
Text: The group of three's "showing ourselves to each other game" begins!
Nozomi: Kimio, you're so funny!
Text: A serious anime adaptation from the Shonen Sunday editorial department.
Nozomi: Which do you prefer, my boobs or Makino's?
Text: Won't you take a peek?
Nozomi: See, my heart's beating... fast...

The Nozoki Ana risqué comedy follows a young man who discovers a tiny hole in a wall of his new room, and looks through it to see a girl on the other side. The spinoff manga Nozo x Kimi follows high school students Nozomi and Kimio, two other inhabitants of the same apartment complex as the characters in Nozoki Ana.

Yūsuke Kobayashi, Ayaka Suwa, and Shizuka Ishigami lead the cast of the anime as Kimio, Nozomi, and Yūki, respectively. Maaya Uchida plays MICHIRU, and Yū Serizawa plays Mirei.

Honna is serializing the manga in Shogakukan's Weekly Shonen Sunday, and Shogakukan is shipping the third compiled volume on Wednesday, June 18.

Nozoki Ana itself inspired an original video anime that shipped on DVD with the 13th and final manga volume in 2013. That anime was also released on its own on Blu-ray Disc.
