Staff reunions from AnoHana, Onegai mark production of upcoming anime series.
Four people, two different anime series from which they started, one anime to unite them all.
The upcoming adolescent romantic comedy anime Ano Natsu de Matteru, which is set to premiere January next year, will feature different staff reunions from two different anime series, according to a magazine article.
The issue of the publishing firm Gakken’s Megami Magazine for January 2012, on sale last Wednesday, has revealed that AnoHana director Tatsuyuki Nagai and character designer Masayoshi Tanaka will collaborate again in the anime.
Nagai and Tanaka also worked for the popular anime series Toradora! in the same capacities.
Also reuniting to work for the series are Onegai Teacher/Onegai Twins story creator Yousuke Kuroda and the Onegai franchise’s original character designer Taraku Uon. Kuroda will handle the screenplay of the series, while Uon had made the original character designs which will be adapted by Tanaka.
Cast members will include Haruka Tomatsu, Nobunaga Shimazaki, and Hideki Ogihara, among others.
