The twelve-episode set will be priced at 32,000 yen when it arrives and will be spread across two discs. It’s set to include the clean opening and closing as well as the promos. Some original manga material is expected as well as a tapestry by Hata.
Hiroshi Ikehata directed the series based on the scripts overseen by Kazuho Hyodo. Masakatsu Sasaki handled the character designs with Seven Arcs working on the animation production.
Akari Kito performed the opening theme song “Koi no Uta” while KanoeRana performed the ending theme song with “Tsuki to Hoshizora” for it.
The Japanese cast includes Akari Kitō as Tsukasa, Junya Enoki as Nasa, Yū Serizawa as Kaname Arisugawa, Sumire Uesaka as Aya Arisugawa, and Konomi Kohara as Chitose Kaginoji.
The series began back in February 2018 as serialized in Weekly Shonen Sunday. Ten volumes are out as of March 2020. Viz Media picked up the rights to the manga with it coming out this fall.
Plot Concept: The comedy follows a boy named Nasa who meets a “generally cute” girl named Tsukasa on the day of his high school entrance exams, and immediately falls in love with her. Nasa confesses his feelings, but her response is that she will only go out with him if they get married. Years later, on Nasa’s 18th birthday, she suddenly appears to get married. Thus begins Nasa’s newlywed lifestyle.
