The winter 2017 anime series Super Lovers has gotten its home video release information with Kadokawa distributing the show and it follows the first season pretty closely. We got a bit behind on the artwork for this one but we finally have a decent sized image of the packaging for the second volume that came out on April 28th, 2017. The ten episode series is getting a five volume release that began on March 24th, 2017. The DVDs are priced at 6,600 yen each and the Blu-ray’s are priced at 7,600 yen.
Shinji Ishihara directed the show based on the composition by Yoshihiko Nakamura. Miki Takihara worked on the character designs and the series was animated by Studio Deen.

The series comes from Miyuki Abe which began back in 2009 and it has five volumes released in Japan so far. The tenth volume of the manga series will be getting a bundled anime episode with it and that’s scheduled for January 1st, 2017.
Plot concept: While spending summer with his mother, Haru meets Ren, a boy newly adopted by his mother. Getting along with Ren isn’t easy as Haru’s goal is to “civilize” him by the time summer ends. Their relationship slowly improves as Haru spends more time with Ren, and in return Ren steadily warms up to him. Can they really become a “family” at the end of summer?!
