posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The official Twitter account for the "petit anime" of Koromo's Koisuru Shirokuma (A Polar Bear in Love) manga noted on Monday that a second anime episode began running before feature films in Japanese theaters on May 13. The anime's official website updated with a new visual on Monday.
Natsuki Hanae (The Disastrous Life of Saiki K.'s Reita, HaruChika's Shinjirō) voices the Seal, and Yuichiro Umehara (Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans' Eugene, Nananin no Ayakashi's Guten) voices the Polar Bear.
Kazuya Ichikawa (Tantei Team KZ Jiken Note, Monster Strike the Animation) directed the anime at Gathering, and also penned the script. Yō Yamada (Penguindrum, The Garden of Words, your name.) served as the sound director. Rock band Scenario Art (The Perfect Insider) composed the music.
The original manga revolves around a polar bear who falls in love with an earless seal, and he wants nothing else except to protect him, even though the seal constantly thinks the bear will eat him.
Koromo launched the manga on the free manga app Comico in December 2014, and began serializing it in Monthly Comic Gene in June 2015. Kadokawa published the manga's third compiled book volume on March 27. Yen Press licensed the manga in April.
