The official website for the television anime of Yōsuke Kaneda's school romantic comedy manga series Kishuku Gakkō no Juliet (Boarding School Juliet) unveiled additional cast members, the theme song artists, the first promotional video, broadcast and streaming information, and a new key visual on Friday.

The United Cinemas Aqua City Odaiba theater's Screen 1 will host two advance screenings — the first with cast members Yuuki Ono, Ai Kayano, Ayane Sakura, and Yu Shimamura, and the second with Ono, Kayano, Hidaka, and Ogura.

The story follows two students from two nations who attend the Dahlia Academy boarding school, and a forbidden love that blooms between them.

Everything begins with the confession that Romio stakes his life on.

Kodansha Comics began releasing the manga digitally in English on April 10 as one of its digital first titles. Kodansha Comics also announced at Anime Expo that it will publish the manga in print.

Kaneda launched the manga in Kodansha's Bessatsu Shonen Magazine in 2015, and the manga moved to Kodansha's Weekly Shonen Magazine in 2017. Kodansha published the eighth volume on June 15. The series received a nomination in the Shōnen category of the 41st Annual Kodansha Manga Awards last year.
