posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The official Twitter account for the television anime of Madosoft's Wagamama High Spec PC game revealed on Friday that the anime will be a series of five-minute shorts. The anime will premiere in April on Tokyo MX and Sun TV. Mainichi Shimbun's Mantan Web site also revealed seven rough draft images on Friday for the series, including the one below.
Satoshi Shimizu (episode director for Fairy Tail, Mushi-Shi) is directing the series at studio AXsiZ. Koujirou Nakamura (Maji de Otaku na English! Ribbon-chan: Eigo de Tatakau Mahō Shōjo) is handling series composition and Masashi Nomura is designing the characters. The anime stars Mariko Honda as Kaoruko Rokuonji, Megu Sakuragawa as Ashe R Sakuragi, Mai Goto as Toa Narumi, and Chiyo Ousaki as Mihiro Miyase.
The visual novel's story revolves around Kōki Narumi, a high school student who also draws a manga serialized in a weekly magazine. Because the manga he draws is a risqué romantic comedy, he keeps this fact a secret from everyone around him, with his younger sister Toa and his best friend Mihiro being the only ones who know.
But one day, as the student council president Kaoruko Rokuonji is searching for male members for the student council, she finds out that Kōki is the manga's author. Kōki joins the student council in exchange for Kaoruko not revealing his secret. However, the vice president Ashe R. Sakuragi strongly opposes him joining, and in the midst of all this, various requests and troubles of students begin to pile up.
Madosoft's PC game will ship in Japan on April 28. Sekai Project plans to release the game in English this year.
