TV anime of Fumiaki Maruto's light novel to premiere on January 8

The official website for the anime of Fumiaki Maruto's Saenai Heroine no Sodate-kata light novel series began streaming a new promotional video on Saturday.


Tomoya: One spring day, I met with destiny. However, that person was my boring classmate... At that moment, I swore: I will change you into a main heroine who can make hearts throb!
Text: The high-class lady of the art club - Eriri Spencer Sawamura (popular 18+ dojinshi artist)
Eriri: So you're telling me to make the meeting with that girl into a game?
Tomoya: You'll do it, right!? Right!? Eriri!?
Eriri: As if, stupid!!
Text: The school's number one genius - Utaha Kasumigaoka (fujoshi)
Utaha: Well, as a plan, you get zero points.
Tomoya: Well, that's...
Text: With a fateful meeting as a trigger, the team begins producing a dating sim!
Megumi: Oh, so earlier... Thank you.
Text: Main heroine and boring girlfriend - Megumi Kato
Tomoya: What are you talking about?
Eriri: There's no way such a crazy plan will go well!
Utaha: You know I'm REALLY busy, right?
Text: And so, will Tomoya be able to complete the game!?
Tomoya: Just-! Just one more time! Listen to what I have to say!
Megumi: Nice to be working with you, Aki.

The original light novels with illustrations by Kurehito Misaki revolve around Tomoya Aki, an otaku who is working part-time to earn enough money to buy anime on Blu-Ray, who meets a beautiful girl on his way home during spring vacation. He eventually models the heroine of his own dojin game after her. However, he finds out a month later that the girl is in fact his classmate, and he doesn't know her name. He learns that the girl — named Megumi — actually is hardly noticed by others. Tomoya also has no artistic ability or writing skills, so he asks ace of the art club Eriri Spencer Sawamura to provide the art, as well as the honor student Utaha Kasumigaoka to write the scenario. Can they produce a decent game for Comic Market?

The cast includes:

  • Saori Onishi (Senki Zesshō Symphogear G 's Ayumi, The Pet Girl of Sakurasou's Shiho) as Eriri Spencer Sawamura
  • Ai Kayano (Anohana's Menma, Guilty Crown's Inori) as Utaha Kasumigaoka
  • Sayuri Yahagi (To Love-Ru's Haruna Sairenji, Hayate the Combat Butler's Izumi Segawa) as Michiru Hyōdō
  • Yoshitsugu Matsuoka (Sword Art Online's Kirito, Buddy Complex's Aoba Watase) as Tomoya Aki
  • Chinatsu Akasaki (Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions!' Shinka) as Izumi Hashima
  • Tetsuya Kakihara (Fairy Tail's Natsu) as Iori Hashima

Kanta Kamei (Bunny Drop, Nanana's Buried Treasure, Oreshura, Tales of Vesperia: The First Strike) is directing the anime at A-1 Pictures. Maruto (White Album 2) is, himself, writing the scripts and Hajime Hyakkoku (K-ON!, GJ Club) of F.M.F is composing the music.

The anime will premiere on January 8.
