We learned last month that the manga series from NAOE called Aoharu x Kikanju will be making the leap to anime and new a few new details have surfaced. The series is now slated for a summer 2015 debut in Japan and it’s been revealed that the lead cast will include:
- Mikako Komatsu as Hotaru Tachibana
- Tomoaki Maeno as Masamune Matsuoka
- Yoshitsugu Matsuoka as Tohru Yukimura.
The property is NAOE’s first work, which started off as a one-shot that appeared in Gangan Online back in the summer of 2011 and then spent some time being reworked into an ongoing series, which kicked off in the summer of 2012 in GFantasy magazine. It has six volumes out so far, of which you can see the covers for below.
Plot concept: Matsuoka and Yukki were close friends who dreamed of becoming professional soccer players together. But their hopes were dashed when Yukki moved away due to family issues. Years pass and Matsuoka is now a host while Yukki has become a hentai mangaka. Matsuoka meets Yukki again while the latter is fleeing from his editor, and is soon introduced to his childhood friend’s latest obsession…
