posted on by Andrew Osmond
Anime Limited has announced on its website that it will stream Castle Town Dandelion (Jōkamachi no Dandelion). From the announcement:
"We are also happy to confirm that we have partnered with Viewster.com to simulcast the series to the UK and Ireland. (Start date to be announced.) It will also be released on home video for the UK (TBC 2016)."
In the story, the everyday lives of the nine super-powered siblings of the royal family are monitored by more than 200 surveillance cameras and broadcast nationwide. The people of the nation who are watching the broadcast will have the ability to elect the next monarch. The story focuses on Akane, the third-oldest sister who can manipulate gravity. She is shy and desperately does not want to be caught on camera.
Noriaki Akitaya (Bakuman., BONJOUR Sweet Love Patisserie) will helm the series at Production IMS (Inari Kon Kon, The Testament of Sister New Devil, Gonna be the Twin-Tail!!). Reiko Yoshida (Non Non Biyori, Bakuman., You and Me.) will handle series composition, and Shinpei Kobayashi (Aldnoah.Zero, Inari Kon Kon) will design the characters and serve as animation director. Kasuga previously designed the characters for the Gonna be the Twin-Tail!! anime that premiered last October.
The cast includes Kana Hanazawa as Akane, together with Ai Kayano, Ryohei Kimura, Kaori Ishihara, Ayumu Murase, Eriko Matsui, Yui Ogura, Aina Suzuki and Shiori Katsuta. Yui Ogura is performing the ending theme "Honey♥Come!!" and joining Kaori Ishihara to perform the opening theme "Ring Ring Rainbow!!"
