9th Sasaki and Miyano Manga Volume to Bundle Original Anime DVD

posted on by Egan Loo
Nobunaga Shimazaki reprises drama CD role in story drafted by manga creator

Shō Harusono's ninth Sasaki and Miyano manga volume will have a special edition that bundles an anime DVD on July 27, 2022. The DVD will feature the original story episode "Koi ni Kizuku Mae no Chotto Shita Hanashi." as drafted by Harusono.

The episode's story begins in November, when a student who lost a keychain goes to Miyano and the others. At Hanzawa's prompting, the "First Lost-Item Detective Agency" is established. Hirano's roommate Akira Kagiura appears in the episode, and Nobunaga Shimazaki reprise this role from the earlier drama CD.

The upcoming television anime will ship its first Blu-ray Disc and DVD on March 30:

Yen Press licensed the manga, and it describes the story:

It all started like a typical old-school boys' love plotline—bad-boy senior meets adorably awkward underclassman, one of them falls in love, and so on and so forth. But although Miyano is a self-proclaimed boys' love expert, he hasn't quite realized…he's in one himself. Which means it's up to Sasaki to make sure their story has a happily ever after…!

The cast members are all reprising their roles from the manga's previous drama CDs, and include:

Shinji Ishihira (Fairy Tail, Log Horizon, Talentless Nana) is directing the television anime at Studio DEEN. Takahiro Ueno is the assistant director. Yoshiko Nakamura (Super Lovers, Shōnen Maid, Tada Never Falls in Love) is in charge of series scripts. Maki Fujii (I've Always Liked You, The Moment You Fall in Love, Our love has always been 10 centimeters apart.) is designing the characters.

The five-member band Miracle Chimpanzee is performing the opening theme song "Mabataki" (Blink) is the band's first single on a major label, while Yusuke Shirai and Sōma Saitō are performing the ending character theme song "Ichigo Sunset" (Strawberry Sunset) as their respective characters.

The television anime will premiere on Tokyo MX, KBS Kyoto, and Sun TV on January 9, on BS NTV on January 10, and on AT-X on January 11. It will also begin streaming on U-NEXT on January 9.

Harusono launched the manga on the pixiv website in 2016. Kadokawa published the manga's seventh volume in November 2020. Kotoko Hachijō penned a novel adaptation that shipped in March 2020. The Hirano to Kagiura spinoff manga about two side characters launched in 2019 and runs in Kadokawa's Monthly Comic Gene magazine. That spinoff manga has in turn inspired its own novel.
