Kase-san and Morning Glories Anime Reveals OVA Format With 2018 Premiere
posted on by Jennifer Sherman
The official website for the new anime adaptation of Hiromi Takashima's Kase-san and Morning Glories (Asagao to Kase-san.) manga revealed on Monday that the anime will be an original video anime (OVA) and have limited theatrical screenings in Japan that will premiere in early summer 2018. Takashima drew a special illustration for the announcement.
A five-minute animated clip of the manga debuted in May, and its official Twitter account revealed in August that the manga will get a new anime project in 2018.
The clip's director Takuya Satō (Girls Beyond the Wasteland, Say, "I Love You".) and producer Yūsuke Terada will appear at a talk event at the Yamagata International Documentary Film Festival 2017 event at Yamagata Museum of Art on October 7.
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 published Kase-san and Shortcake on September 12.
