The anime adaptation of the manga Gekkan Shojo Nozaki-kun by Media Factory has moved along rather quietly as there’s not been a lot of heavy promotion for it. Ahead of its July 6th, 2014 debut, the second promotional video has landed for it that clocks in at 90 seconds and uses a nice chunk of the opening song by Masayoshi Oishi. Daisuke Ono has signed on to play Mitsuya Maeno, Kenta Miyake as Ken Miyamae and Ayako Kawasumi will be playing Yukari Miyako. The series previously had cast its leads, which you can see in the video below, with Yuichi Nakamura as Umetaro Nozaki, Ari Ozawa as Chiyo Sakura and Nobuhiko Kotamoto as Mikoto Mikoshiba.
The series, based on the manga by Izumi Tsubaki (creator of Oresama Teacher), is animated by Dogakobo. The series will be directed by Mitsue Yamazaki based on scripts and composition by Yoshiko Nakamura and character designs by Junichiro Taniguchi. The original four panel web manga began in the summer of 2011 and is ongoing with four published volumes to date.
