posted on by Jennifer Sherman
The official website for the television anime adaptation of Nanatsu Mukunoki's Watashi ni Tenshi ga Maiorita! (An Angel Flew Down to Me!) manga revealed a key visual, character visuals, the main cast, and the January 2019 premiere for the anime on Wednesday.
The cast includes:
Maria Sashide as Hana Shirosaki
Rika Nagae as Hinata Hoshino
Akari Kitō as Noa Himesaka
The anime is reuniting staff members who worked together on the New Game! anime. Daisuke Hiramaki (episode director for Yuruyuri San Hai!, Shirobako, New Game!!) is directing the series at Doga Kobo (Tada Never Falls in Love, Monthly Girls' Nozaki-kun). Hiromi Nakagawa (chief animation director for Himouto! Umaru-chan, Rewrite) is designing the characters, and Yuka Yamada (Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid, My Sweet Tyrant) is in charge of series composition.
The four-panel comedy manga's story centers on Miyako Hoshino, a shy college student and otaku. Miyako's younger sister Hinata, who is a fifth grader, has a classmate and friend named Hana. When they meet, Miyako falls for Hana at first sight.
Mukunoki launched the manga in Ichijinsha's Comic Yuri Hime magazine in 2016, and the publisher released the third compiled book volume on June 15. The fourth volume will ship on November 15.
