Enchanted by the girl, Kōsei starts to move forward with his own legs at the age of 14.
The cast includes:
Kyōhei Ishiguro (Fairy Tail, Psycho-Pass episode director) is directing the anime at A-1 Pictures off scripts by Takao Yoshioka (High School DxD, WATAMOTE). Yukiko Aikei (Accel World, Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere) is serving as character designer and chief animation director. Masaru Yokoyama (Queen's Blade, Freezing Vibration) is composing the music, while Jin Aketagawa (High School DxD, anohana) is sound director.
The manga debuted in Kodansha's Monthly Shonen Magazine in 2011, and the ninth compiled volume shipped in Japan in May. The series won the Best Shōnen Manga category in Kodansha's 37th Annual Manga Awards last year.
