Opening theme song by Mimi Meme MIMI previewed

The official website of the television anime of Gido Amagakure's Sweetness and Lightning (Amaama to Inazuma) manga revealed a promotional video and new key visual on Friday. The video features the opening theme song "Harebare Fanfare" (Bright Fanfare) by "audiovisual unit" Mimi Meme MIMI.

The anime will premiere on Tokyo MX and Yomiuri TV on July 4, and on BS11 on July 5. It will be the first anime on the new "Anime no Me" programming block established by TMS Entertainment, Shinei Animation, East Japan Marketing & Communications, Inc., Sumitomo Corporation, and Asmik-Ace Entertainment.

Sweetness and Lightning's cast includes:

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

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 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 will publish the manga's seventh compiled volume on July 7.
