posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The official website for WATATEN!: an Angel Flew Down to Me, the television anime of Nanatsu Mukunoki's Watashi ni Tenshi ga Maiorita! manga, announced on Wednesday that the anime will have three Blu-ray Disc/DVD volumes in Japan, with the third volume containing a bonus original video anime. The site also lists 12 episodes for the television anime series itself. The three home video volumes will ship on March 27, April 24, and May 24.
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! Umaruchan, Rewrite) is designing the characters, and Yuka Yamada (Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid, My Sweet Tyrant) is in charge of series composition.
Maria Sashide, Rika Nagae, Akari Kitō, Hitomi Ohwada, and Naomi Ōzora are performing the opening theme song "Kimama na Tenshi-tachi" (Carefree Angels) as the group Wataten☆5. The group is also performing the ending theme song "Happy Happy Friends."
