Production I.G's Anime Beans app revealed on Friday that Mayu Minase's Musunde Hiraite (Close Open) manga is getting an anime adaptation on the app. The first eight episodes are available on the app, and the first four are available to view for free.
The "academy youth love story" centers on the romances between various high school students. The series has a wide view that moves between the stories of different students. One boy (voiced by Kōdai Sakai) instantly falls for a girl (voiced by Ai Kakuma) he meets, and he repeatedly tries to win her over. However, she always evades him. She continues to avoid all boys as she guards a secret.
Other cast members include Nozomi Furuki, Shohei Yamaguchi, Hisako Tōjō, Ayaka Asai, Tomohiro Yamaguchi, Yuta Aoki, Chika Yoshitomi, Hikaru Toono, Wataru Usami, Yuri Katō, and Arisa Nakada.
Hisayoshi Hirasawa (Love is Like a Cocktail, Netsuzou Trap -NTR-) is both director and sound director for the anime. Creators in Pack (NTR: Netsuzou Trap, Miss Bernard said.) is producing the series, and Cloud22 is handling sound production.
Minase launched the manga as her debut work in Mag Garden's free web manga magazine EDEN in 2009, and the series concluded in 2013. Mag Garden published eight compiled book volumes for the series.
Production I.G launched the Tate Anime app in June 2017 and it ended service on May 31. The app offered short (about three-minute) anime that update on weekdays, and each series had 10 episodes. The anime are presented vertically for smartphones.
Production I.G rebranded the app as Anime Beans in June.
