This fall, we’re getting two anime adaptations of manga from shoujo magazine Dessert. In addition to the previously previewed Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun (The Monster Seated Next to You), October sees the premiere of Kanae Hazuki’s Suki-tte Ii na yo (Say “I love you”) – the story of a friendless teenage girl who drop-kicks a popular boy- after which he unilaterally decides the two should be in a relationship.
Ai Kayano (AnoHana’s Menma) and Takahiro Sakurai (Cloud Strife in various games, Atsumu Matsuyuki from AnoHana, Koko from Toriko). Other cast includes Minako Kotobuki (Tiger & Bunny‘s Blue Rose, K-on‘s Mugi), Nobunaga Shimazaki (Tari Tari’s Taichi Tanaka), Tomoaki Maeno (Another’s Teshigawara) and Yumi Uchiyama (Usagi Drop‘s Kazumi Kawachi).
Takuya Sato (Ichigo Mashimaro, Fate/stay night, NieA_7) writes and directs with animator Toshimasa Kuroyanagi (And Yet the Town Moves’ opening) as series director.
