The spring 2016 anime series Anne Happy, originally listed as Unhappy in its first mentions, had its home video release plans set recently. While the focus is on updating each of the installments as they get closer to coming out, we’re deviating slightly here to take a look at the series box that’s being produced for it with a look at both sides of it. The twelve episode series is getting a six-volume release that began on June 22nd, 2016. The Blu-ray releases are priced at 7,000 yen each while the DVDs are priced at 6,000 yen each.
The series is being produced by Silver Link. Shin Oonuma is on board to direct based on scripts by Hitoshi Tanaka. Miwa Oshima is serving as both character designer and chief animation director.
The cast includes Yumiri Hanamori as An Hanakoizumi, Haruka Shiraishi as Ruri Hibarigaoka, Kiyono Yasuno as Botan Kumegawa, Hibiku Yamamura as Hibiki Hagyuu, Mayu Yoshioka as Ren Ekoda, Yumi Hara as Kodaira-sensei and Chitose Morinaga as Timothy.
Four volumes have been released so far since it debuted at the end of 2012.
Plot concept: The story centers around class 1-7 of Tennogofune Academy, where all the students with “bad karma” or misfortune seem to have been gathered. Hibari, a student in this class, meets the unlucky Hanako and the perennially unhealthy Botan on her first day of school, and together they try to find a way to turn their school life into a happy one.
