The official Twitter account for the five-minute animated clip of Hiromi Takashima's Kase-san and Morning Glories (Asagao to Kase-san.) manga revealed on Monday that the manga is getting a new anime project.

The clip debuted in May.

The manga follows a romance between "the clumsy, flower-adoring Yamada and the exuberant Kase-san, their school's track and field star." Seven Seas Entertainment is releasing the manga in North America, and it describes the story:

Yamada may be shy and rather clumsy, but the flower gardens at her school have always brought her happiness. Suddenly, a different sort of beauty catches her eye—the vivacious track star, Kase-san. Although the two girls don't seem to have much in common, they soon start a romance where each must learn an important lesson in tending their budding relationship. Can the two girls, so different from each other, learn how to make their first love blossom?

Takashima serialized Kase-san and... in Shinshokan's yuri manga anthology Hirari until the magazine ceased publication in 2014. The series is ongoing on Shinshokan's Web Wings online manga platform. The manga began serializing in the LINE Manga app in March.

Shinshokan published Kase-san and Morning Glories (Asagao to Kase-san.) in 2012, followed by Obentō to Kase-san. (Kase-san and Bento) in 2012, Shortcake to Kase-san. (Kase-san and Shortcake; pictured right) in 2015, and Apron to Kase-san. (Kase-san and Apron) on July 25.

Seven Seas Entertainment released Kase-san and Morning Glories on February 28 and Kase-san and Bento on May 23. The company will publish Kase-san and Shortcake on September 12.
