Ane-Log Sibling Comedy's 2nd Video Anime Clip Streamed
posted on by Karen Ressler
Shogakukan began streaming a clip from the second original video anime (OVA) of Kenji Taguchi's comedy manga Ane Log - Moyako Nee-san no Tomaranai Monologue (Sister's Log - Moyako's Monologue That Won't Stop) on Monday.
The OVA will ship on DVD with the limited edition of the manga's sixth volume on December 18. The first OVA shipped with the limited edition of the fifth volume on September 18.
Taguchi launched the manga in Shogakukan's Weekly Shonen Sunday in 2012. The manga's story centers on Moyako Konoe (played by Ami Koshimizu) and her younger brother Akira (Takahiro Mizushima). When they were younger, Akira proposed to her, so Moyako thinks he is a pervert who has fallen in love with his older sister. Moyako's misunderstanding leads her to create wild delusions about her brother.
Tetsuo Ichimura (episode director for Bleach, Durarara!!) is directing the OVA at Brains Base with scripts by Natsuko Takahashi (Romeo × Juliet, Bleach). Eriko Itō (Hamatora) is handling the character design.
In addition to Koshimizu and Mizushima, other cast members include Satomi Akesaka as Kasumi Kurose, Mariko Honda as Fūka Saeki, Aoi Yūki as Burisa Umehira, and Subaru Kimura as Yōhei Fukuyama. Koshimizu will perform the ending theme.
The manga previously inspired a drama CD and a fan disc with six Flash anime shorts. Koshimizu (Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere's Tomo, Code Geass' Kallen), Mizushima (Kokoro Connect's Taichi, Guilty Crown's Yahiro), and Akesaka (Wake Up, Girls!'s Reina, Coppelion's Taeko) also starred in both the drama CD and Flash anime.
