Nozoki Ana Spinoff Manga Nozo x Kimi Gets 3rd Video Anime

posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
3rd OVA following MICHIRU, Kimio to ship in February with 6th manga volume

The wraparound band on the fifth volume of Wakoh Honna's Nozoki Ana spinoff manga Nozo x Kimi (Nozomi x Kimio) revealed on Tuesday that the series will get a third original video anime. Shogakukan will bundle the DVD with a limited edition of the sixth compiled volume on February 18. The "Sonoda MICHIRU" episode will follow Kimio and cheer club member MICHIRU after a certain incident starts causing trouble for the pair.

Studio ZEXCS will return to animate the OVA. Cast members Yūsuke Kobayashi, Ayaka Suwa, and Maaya Uchida will reprise their roles of Kimio, Nozomi, and MICHIRU respectively from the previous OVA episodes. Shizuka Ishigami and Yū Serizawa also played Yūki and Mirei respectively in previous episodes.

The limited edition of the manga's fourth volume bundled the first OVA episode on August 18, and the limited edition of the fifth volume shipped with the second OVA episode on Tuesday.

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.

Honna is serializing the spinoff manga in Shogakukan's Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine.

Nozoki Ana itself inspired an original video anime that shipped on DVD with the 13th and final manga volume in February 2013, and then shipped on a standalone Blu-ray Disc release in May 2013.
