One of the big Shonen Sunday anime projects for 2013 is the adaptation of "Akira's" hikikomori rom-com [email protected], a SHAFT production featuring Akiyuki Shinbo (Madoka Magica, Bakemonogatari) reuniting with comedy collaborator Katsuhiko Takayama (Pani Poni Dash!/And Yet the Town Moves).
After a look at Hiroki Harada's (Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal, Romeo x Juliet) character designs in black and white last month, we're now getting a full color preview of the high profile anime series.
The series is about a shut-in who spies on her caretaker brother using her computer's “onii-chan surveillance tool.” It kicks off this January with ZAQ (Chūnibyō Demo Koi ga Shitai!, Hidamari Sketch x Honeycomb) providing the opening, "Alteration."
