posted on by Kyle Hallmark
"Audiovisual unit" Mimi Meme MIMI (band's image pictured at right) announced at the @Jam concert at Zepp DiverCity Tokyo on Sunday that the duo will perform the opening theme song "Harebare Fanfare" (Bright Fanfare) for the television anime adaptation of Gido Amagakure's Sweetness and Lightning (Amaama to Inazuma) manga. The duo is writing the song specifically for the show. The official website for the anime confirmed the news on Monday.
Mimi Meme MIMI consists of singer/songwriter Yuki Takao and illustrator Chamooi. The pair's debut song was used as the opening theme for the 2013 anime Kimi no Iru Machi, and they have since contributed the opening theme song for Blade & Soul and the ending theme song for Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches.
Rina Endo (Barakamon's Hina Kubota) as Tsumugi Inuzuka
Saori Hayami (Snow White with the Red Hair's Shirayuki) as Kotori Iida
Haruka Tomatsu (Sword Art Online's Asuna) as Shinobu Kojika, Kotori's friend and classmate
Tomokazu Seki (Fate/stay night's Gilgamesh) as Yūsuke Yagi, a café bar owner
Tarou Iwasaki (Ryoko's Case File, One Week Friends) is directing the series at TMS Entertainment with animation cooperation by Shin-Ei Animation. Mitsutaka Hirota (The Prince of Tennis II, X-Men, Bono Bono) is handling the series composition and Hiroki Harada (The Pilot's Love Song, [email protected], Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal) is designing the characters.
Kodansha Comics describes the story:
Having lost his wife, math teacher Kouhei Inuzuka is doing his best to raise his young daughter Tsumugi as a single father. He's pretty bad at cooking and doesn't have a huge appetite to begin with, but chance brings his little family and one of his students, Kotori Iida, together for homemade adventures. With those three cooks in the kitchen, it's no wonder this dinner table drama is so delicious.
Amagakure (100 Blossoms to Love) launched the manga in good! Afternoon in 2013, and Kodansha published the manga's sixth compiled volume on March 7.
