The official website of the television anime of Gido Amagakure's Sweetness and Lightning (Amaama to Inazuma) manga began streaming a promotional video for the anime on Friday. The video is a longer version of the promotional video posted earlier on Friday, and similarly 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. The series 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 describes the original manga's 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.

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