The official website for the television anime of Nanatsu Mukunoki's Watashi ni Tenshi ga Maiorita! (An Angel Flew Down to Me!) manga revealed on Monday that Maria Sashide, Rika Nagae, Akari Kitō, Hitomi Ohwada, and Naomi Ōzora are performing the show's ending theme song "Happy Happy Friends" as the group Wataten☆5. The group is also performing the opening theme song "Kimama na Tenshi-tachi" (Carefree Angels). The single featuring both songs will ship on January 30.
The series will premiere in January, and stars:
- Reina Ueda as Miyako Hoshino
- Maria Sashide as Hana Shirosaki
- Rika Nagae as Hinata Hoshino
- Akari Kitō as Noa Himesaka
- Hitomi Ohwada as Koyori Tanemura
- Naomi Ōzora as Kanon Konomori
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.
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.
Mukunoki launched the manga in Ichijinsha's Comic Yuri Hime magazine in 2016, and the publisher released fourth volume on November 15.
