New ‘Futari Ecchi’ Anime OVA Gets Release Date, Cover Art

2 min read

Futari EcchiAfter a twelve year gap between new releases, we learned earlier this year that Futari Ecchi, aka Step Up Love Story, was coming back. Now the show has gotten its release date and it’s definitely interesting. Victor Entertainment will be releasing it on three DVDs on October 10th, 2014 for 4,104 yen each. They’ll also be releasing it in a full on box set release for 12,312 yen.

The OVA will be directed by Testuro Amino of Macross 7 and Broken Blade based on scripts by Kazuki Yamanobe at Production Reed studio. This studio has largely worked as 2nd key and in-between animation for years, though they have a handful of main properties they’ve worked on such as Tsubasa: Spring Thunder and Brave Story. Toshihide Masudate is set to work as the chief animation director and character designer.

Casting for the series, which will reveal Yura Onoda’s actress later, is set for Yuichi Nakamura as Makoto Onoda, Chiwa Saito as Rika Kawada, Sarah Emi Bridcutt as the Narrator, Akari Harashima as Rui Tsutsumi and Iori Nomizu as Miyuki Kikuchi.

The series, which began in 1997, has seen an anime adaptation before with Media Blasters releasing it as the wonderful Step Up Love Story. TOKYOPOP released some of the manga as well way back when but never got very far.

Plot concept: Makoto and Yura Onoda are happy newlyweds but neither of them has sexual experience before. Desperately willing to improve their sex life, they look for help from their relatives, friends and “the media.” While their sexual knowledge is increasing, embarrassing moments are not uncommon for the innocent couple.
