posted on by Jennifer Sherman
The staff of Konbini Kareshi (Convenience Store Boyfriends), a mixed-media project developed by Kadokawa's B’s Log Comic magazine, announced on Thursday that the project is getting a television anime adaptation. The anime will premiere on TBS and other networks in July.
Hayato Date (Saiyuki, Naruto) is directing the anime at Studio Pierrot. Satomi Ishikawa (Tokimeki Restaurant game character designs, Buddy Complex key animation) is designing the characters based on illustrator Makoto Senzaki's original character designs. Sayaka Harada (STARMYU) is in charge of series composition.
The mixed-media project centers on a group of male high school students who always stop at a convenience store on their way home from school. The project launched in 2015 and has already released mooks (magazine-style books) with bundled drama CDs.
