Daiki Yamashita, Haruka Tomatsu star in series at anime studio CONNECT

A stage presentation at the "Dengeki Bunko 25th Anniversary Fall Dengeki Festival" event on Sunday revealed that Rakuda and Buriki's Ore wo Suki na no wa Omae Dake ka yo (Are You Really the Only One Who Likes Me) light novel series is getting a television anime adaptation.

Aniplex is streaming an announcement video for the anime. (Note: The video is region-locked to Japan, a region-free version is below.)

The anime will star:

  • Daiki Yamashita as Amatsuyu Kisaragi (or Jōro), the self-proclaimed dense protagonist
  • Haruka Tomatsu as Sumireko Sanshokuin (or Pansy), a girl with glasses, braids, and a sharp tongue
  • Haruka Shiraishi as Aoi Hinata (or Himawari), the childhood friend
  • Sachika Misawa as Sakura Akino (or Cosmos), the multi-talented student council president

In the romantic comedy series, Amatsuyu Kirasagi is invited out alone by the cool beauty upperclassman Cosmos and his childhood friend Himawari. Expecting to hear their confessions, he triumphantly goes to meet each of them in turn. But Cosmos and Himawari both instead confess to Amatsuyu that they like his friend. Amatsuyu fights this lonely battle, but there is another girl who is looking at him. She is a gloomy girl with glasses and braids. Amatsuyu finds that he hates her, because she's always turning her sharp tongue only on him and finding enjoyment in his troubles. But it turns out that she's the only one who actually does like him.

Noriaki Akitaya (Bakuman. all three seasons, Active Raid both seasons, BONJOUR Sweet Love Patisserie) is directing the anime at CONNECT, and Shoko Takimoto (Armed Girl's Machiavellism, Death March to The Parallel World Rhapsody, BONJOUR Sweet Love Patisserie) is designing the characters. Rakuda is writing all the episode scripts and is handling the series composition.

Kadokawa began publishing the light novel series in February 2016, and released the ninth novel on July 10. The 10th volume will ship on November 10. Yū Ijima launched a manga adaptation on Shueisha's Shonen Jump+ website and app in February 2017, and Shueisha has so far published two compiled volumes.

Thanks to Dennis R. for the embedded video.
