Media distribution service Crunchyroll announced on Tuesday that it will stream the anime adaptation of Atsuko Watanabe's Piacevole! (Piace: Watashi no Italian) manga as it airs in Japan. The first episode will premiere worldwide outside of Asia on Wednesday, January 11 at 10:30 a.m. EST.
Crunchyroll is releasing the manga in English digitally, and it describes the series:
High schooler Morina Nanase starts work at Trattoria Festa, an Italian restaurant filled with various and sundry quirky characters...and where through its unique cuisine, she will begin to mature as a person.
Hiroaki Sakurai (Kodocha, Di Gi Charat, Maid Sama!) is directing the anime at Zero-G, with Watanabe herself drawing the anime's character designs. Reiji Kasuga (Sasami: Magical Girls Club, Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu, GA: Geijutsuka Art Design Class) is credited as art director.
