High school series revolves around mysterious "puberty syndrome"

Kadokawa opened a website on Saturday to announce that Hajime Kamoshida's Seishun Buta Yarō light novel series is getting a television anime adaptation titled Seishun Buta Yarō wa Bunny Girl-senpai no Yume wo Minai (The Young Pig-Rascal Isn't Dreaming of a Bunny Girl Upperclassman). The anime will premiere in October.

The series will star:

In the series, there's a rumor about a mysterious phenomenon call "puberty syndrome." For example, Sakuta Azusagawa is a high school student who suddenly sees a bunny girl appear in front of him. The girl is Mai Sakurajima, Sakuta's upperclassman and also a famous actress who has gone on hiatus from the entertainment industry. For some reason, the people around Mai cannot see her bunny-girl figure. Sakuta sets out to solve this mystery, and as he spends time with Mai, he learns her secret feelings. Other heroines who have "puberty syndrome" start to appear in front of Sakuta.

Kadokawa published the first novel in the series, also titled Seishun Buta Yarō wa Bunny Girl-senpai no Yume wo Minai, in April 2014. Keeji Mizoguchi provides the illustrations. Kadokawa published the seventh and most recent volume in October 2016. Tsugumi Nanamiya launched a manga adaptation of the first novel volume in the January 2016 issue of Dengeki G's Comic magazine. Kadokawa published the first volume in October 2016.

Kamoshida and Mizoguchi previously worked together on The Pet Girl of Sakurasou (Sakurasō no Pet na Kanojo) light novel series, which inspired a 24-episode television anime series in 2012-2013.
