Nisekoi OAD's Promo Video Previews Newlywed Shorts
posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Aniplex began streaming a promotional video on Thursday for the anime DVD that will ship with the limited edition of the 21st volume of Naoshi Komi's Nisekoi manga (Note: the above linked video is region-locked to Japan).
The bundle will ship on January 4. The deadline to pre-order the limited edition is October 26.
Half of the original anime DVD will adapt the special bonus "Magical Pâtissier" manga shorts that are featured in the 19th, 20th, and 21st manga volumes (the above video lists the part as Magical Pâtissier Kosaki-chan episode 2). The shorts feature a new Yui-neechan character (Yui Kanakura, voiced by Yui Horie).
The other half of the original anime DVD will adapt Komi's "Shinkon" (Newlywed) manga bonuses in the fourth manga volume (Kosaki), and the booklets bundled with the 16th (Marika), 17th (Tsugumi), and 21st (Chitoge) manga volumes.
Chief director Akiyuki Shinbo, character designer Nobuhiro Sugiyama, and the anime studio SHAFT are all returning for the original anime DVD after working on the television anime. Yukihiro Miyamoto (Arakawa Under the Bridge, Maria Holic, Puella Magi Madoka Magica) is the chief technical director.
The limited edition bundle for the 21st volume will include the manga volume itself, the anime DVD, a special booklet with Komi's "Shinkon Chitoge" short, one new Nisekoi PR card for the Weiβ Schwarz game, and the Magical Pâtissier Kosaki-chan postcard calendar.
