posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The official website of the television anime of Tsukasa Fushimi's Eromanga Sensei light novels began streaming the show's second promotional video and second commercial on Sunday (Note: the linked videos are region locked to Japan). The videos preview ClariS' opening theme song "Hitorigoto" (Soliloquy).
The videos also reveal that the anime will premiere on Tokyo MX, Tochigi TV, Gunma TV, and BS11 on April 8 at 24:30 (effectively April 9 at 12:30 a.m.). The show will later air on MBS, TV Aichi, and AT-X.
The Eromanga Sensei "new sibling romantic comedy" revolves around Masamune Izumi, a light novel author in high school. Masamune's little sister is Sagiri, a shut-in girl who hasn't left her room for an entire year. She even forces her brother to make and bring her meals when she stomps on the floor. Masamune wants his sister to leave her room, because the two of them are each other's only family.
Masamune's novel illustrator, penname "Ero Manga Sensei," draws extremely perverted drawings, and is very reliable. Masamune had never met his illustrator, and figured he was just a disgusting, perverted otaku. However, the truth is revealed that his "Ero Manga Sensei" is his own younger sister. To add to the chaos that erupts between the siblings, a beautiful, female, best-selling shōjo manga creator becomes their rival.
Yoshitsugu Matsuoka (Sword Art Online's Kirito) is playing the protagonist Masamune Izumi (pictured below right), and Akane Fujita (Mahō Shōjo Nante Mō Ii Desu Kara's Yuzuka Hanami) is playing Sagiri Izumi (pictured below left) in the anime. Fujita is reprising the role from an earlier visual drama that was broadcast on Niconico.
Other cast members include:
Minami Takahashi (Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma's Megumi Tadokoro) as Elf Yamada, a top-selling novelist with another publisher
Saori Ōnishi (Saekano: How to Raise a Boring Girlfriend's Eriri Spencer Sawamura) as Muramasa Senjyu, a younger but more experienced novelist with Masamune's publisher
Ibuki Kido (If Her Flag Breaks' Nanami Knight Bladefield) as Megumi Jinno, Sagiri's classmate
Yui Ishikawa (Attack on Titan's Mikasa Ackerman) as Tomoe Takasago, Masamune's classmate
Additionally, Nobunaga Shimazaki will play Kunimitsu Shidō, and Mikako Komatsu will play Ayame Kagurazaka.
Ryohei Takeshita (Monthly Girls' Nozaki-kun chief animation director) and Tatsuya Takahashi (And you thought there is never a girl online?, The [email protected] Cinderella Girls, Pandora in the Crimson Shell: Ghost Urn) are directing and supervising the series scripts, respectively. Hiroyuki Oda (a pseudonym of Hiro Kanzaki) is designing the characters for animation. Shinichiro Kashiwada is serving as the producer of the project, and Aniplex and A-1 Pictures are producing the anime.
TrySail is performing the anime's ending theme song "adrenaline!!!"
Fushimi launched the light novel series in 2013 after finishing the Oreimo (Ore no Imōto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai) light novel series. As with Oreimo, Hiro Kanzaki draws the illustrations for Eromanga Sensei.
