Voice actress and singer Maaya Sakamoto announced on her official website on Monday that she will perform the opening theme song "Million Clouds" for the television anime adaptation of Kozue Amano's Amanchu! manga.
Sakamoto will release the single with the song on the same day as her first live album, which does not yet have a name or release date. Sunday marked the end of Sakamoto's year-long musical anniversary project that commemorated her 20th year in the music industry.
Amanchu! will premiere in July on Tokyo MX, AT-X, and other channels.

Saori Onishi as Ai Ninomiya
Yuichiro Umehara as Makoto Ninomiya

Junichi Sato (Sailor Moon, Princess Tutu, Aria the Animation) is serving as chief director. Kenichi Kasai (Honey and Clover, Nodame Cantabile, Bakuman.) is directing the series at J.C. Staff, with scripts by Deko Akao (Yes! Precure 5, Arakawa Under the Bridge, Snow White With the Red Hair). Yoko Ito (Love Stage!!) is designing the characters.
Amano's manga follows the everyday lives of the members of a diving club in the city of Itō, in Shizuoka prefecture. The manga features the same high school and some of the characters from Amano's earlier Roman Club manga.
