posted on by Jennifer Sherman
The official website for the television anime of Sakuya Amano's Konohana Kitan manga began streaming an announcement video for the anime on Monday. The video features eufonius' opening theme song "Kokoro ni Tsubomi" (Bud in the Heart).
The website also announced that the six main cast members will appear in an eight-part special program that will premiere on Niconico Channel on Wednesday. The program will introduce the anime and feature a waitress experience for the voice actresses.
The series will premiere on AT-X on October 4 at 8:00 p.m., and later the same evening on Tokyo MX. It will also air the following night on BS11 and on Kansai TV. The staff will hold a preview screening with a cast talkshow on September 24.
The cast, from left to right in the image above, includes:
- Ayaka Suwa as Natsume
- Risa Kubota as Ren
- Manami Numakura as Kiri
- Ai Kakuma as Sakura
- Yūko Ōno as Yuzu
- Sawako Hata as Satsuki
Hideki Okamoto (Nagasarete Airantou, Nana to Kaoru, D.C. II: Da Capo II) is directing the series at Lerche. Takao Yoshioka (WATAMOTE, Ikki Tousen, Elfen Lied) is handling the series composition, and Keiko Kurosawa (Scum's Wish, Undefeated Bahamut Chronicle) is the character designer.
The manga originates from Amano's earlier Konohana-tei Kitan manga, which launched in Ichijinsha's Comic Yuri Hime S magazine in 2009. Amano put the manga on hiatus in 2010. Four years later, Amano relaunched the manga with the new Konohana Kitan title in Gentosha's Comic Birz. Gentosha published the manga's fifth volume on March 24, and the sixth volume will ship on September 23.
Amano also drew the manga adaptation of Kazuki Sakuraba's Gosick light novel series, which debuted in Kadokawa's Monthly Dragon Age magazine in 2008, and ended in 2012 with eight volumes. Amano launched the Doubt! manga in Kadokawa's Dengeki Daioh magazine in 2012, and ended it in 2014 with four volumes.
