The latest work from director Junichi Sato (Prétear, Tamayura: Hitotose), together with illustrator Kouhaku Kuroboshi (most well known for the illustrations in the Kino's Journey light novels), is an OVA called oneoff.
It's about a second year high school girl who loves her scooter so much that the project is "presented by" Honda complete with product placement of their Giorno bike. Additionally, a specially painted Giorno is on display at the Osaka and Tokyo Motorcycle Shows this month. Check out the anime trailer:
"What could be waiting over that mountain?"
Haruno Shiosaki [best guess at the kanji at the moment] is a second year high schooler who commutes via her beloved Giorno to a school at the foot of a mountain. The story seems like it will be how her attitude towards the far-off city changes due to some friends she makes at the boarding house her parents run. It's a "refreshing early summer tale in which young girls shine."
