We learned earlier this week that a new yuri anime series is now on tap for the fall 2018 season as the manga series Bloom into You received the green light. With an October premiere ahead of it, the official site and social media has launched and that resulted in our first anime key visual as well that shows us how the designs will be adapted (and what the eventual home video release will likely use as well).
The project is based on the manga by Nio Nakatani and has Makoto Kato directing it based on the scripts by Jukki Hanada. Hiroaki Gohda is handling the character designs with animation production at TROYCA.
The manga, which is available through Seven Seas Entertainment in English, began in 2015 and has five volumes out so far in Japan and four in North America.
Plot Concept: Yuu has always loved shoujo manga and awaits the day she gets a love confession that sends her heart aflutter with bubbles and blushes, and yet when a junior high classmate confesses his feelings to her…she feels nothing. Disappointed and confused, Yuu enters high school still unsure how to respond. That’s when Yuu sees the beautiful student council president Nanami turn down a suitor with such maturity that she’s inspired to ask her for help. But when the next person to confess to Yuu is Nanami herself, has her shoujo romance finally begun?
