After Sunday's event at Comic Market, the cast posed for a photo:
Yui Hara's original manga begins with Shinobu, a 15-year-old, seemingly "pure Japanese" girl who did a homestay in Great Britain. Even after coming back to Japan, she still misses her time overseas. One day, an air mail letter arrives from Alice, the girl in Shinobu's host family in Great Britain. The letter reads, "Shinobu, I'm coming to Japan!" The "Japanese/British girls' light comedy" follows the lives of Shinobu, Alice, and other girls from both Japan and Great Britain.
The first anime series ran last year. Crunchyroll streamed the anime in several regions as it aired in Japan, and Sentai Filmworks licensed it for North American home video. The first season will re-air in Japan from January 7 to March 25, before the second season's premiere.
