Manga has more than 2.5 million copies in print

An official YouTube channel for the upcoming television anime Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches (Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo) opened on Wednesday with a 30-second spot re-announcing the adaptation. The video states that the original manga has more than 2.2 million copies in print, and features the image song "ding!ging!dong!" by the main voice actors Ryota Ohsaka, Maaya Uchida, and Eri Kitamura. The song was used in the first OVA.

The cast includes:

Tomoki Takuno ([email protected]: XENOGLOSSIA, Love Live! School idol project episode director) is directing anime at LIDEN FILMS with assistant director Fumiaki Usui. Michiko Yokote is writing and supervising the series scripts. Eriko Iida (Love Live! School idol project episode animation director) is designing the characters and serving as chief animation director. Yota Tsuruoka (Free! - Iwatobi Swim Club, Puella Magi Madoka Magica) is the sound director, and Masaru Yokoyama is composing the music.

The manga's 15th compiled volume bundled the first anime DVD on December 17. The manga's 17th volume will bundle the second OVA and ship on May 15, 2015. (These anime will feature an original story and include hot spring scenes.)

Miki Yoshikawa launched the manga in 2012, and the series is currently running in Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine. Crunchyroll is releasing manga chapters online overseas as they are published in Japan. The manga already inspired a live-action television adaptation that premiered in 2013.

The television anime premiere this spring.

Update: The Animate news site and retail store had reported on December 23 that Yoshikawa's original manga has more than 2.5 million copies in print.
