The official website of the television anime of Gido Amagakure's Sweetness and Lightning (Amaama to Inazuma) manga announced on Wednesday that the anime will premiere on Tokyo MX and Yomiuri TV on July 4, and on BS11 on July 5.

In addition, TMS Entertainment, Shinei Animation, East Japan Marketing & Communications, Inc., Sumitomo Corporation, and Asmik-Ace Entertainment announced a new anime programming block named "Anime no Me,” the first anime of which will be Sweetness and Lightning. The second anime is the upcoming Trickster anime this October. The block aims to "create an eye of the storm in the animation industry, and to nurture anime projects for the long term."

Sweetness and Lightning's cast includes:

Yūichi Nakamura (Fairy Tail's Gray) as Kouhei Inuzuka

Rina Endō (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 Shinei 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, Sasami-san@Ganbaranai, Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal) is designing the characters.

"Audiovisual unit" Mimi Meme MIMI will perform the opening theme song "Harebare Fanfare" (Bright Fanfare)

Kodansha Comics is releasing the manga digitally and plans to release the series in print in July. Crunchyroll is publishing new chapters as Kodansha is publishing them in Japan.

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.
