Hark! A new day brings forth new anime announcements from Crunchyroll! And the word is out that studio Madhouse’s Photo Kano is joining the 2013 spring lineup.
Photo Kano is set to broadcast every Thursday starting on April 11th at 10:00 am Pacific Time for its premium and free members.
Background and story:
Photo Kano originated as a Japanese dating sim game and has developed into an anime show this season produced by Madhouse (Ninja Scroll, Cardcaptor Sakura). It is written and directed by Akitoshi Yokoyama (Deadman Wonderland, Eureka Seven).
“During Kazuya Maeda’s first year of high school he felt like a nobody, just another forgotten face shuffling through the crowded hallways. Even his best friend from childhood, Nimi, seemed somehow more difficult to approach, since she had matured a little quicker in the unsettling way that girls have a habit of doing. However, this year, things will be different for Kazuya, and part of that change may just be because of the big new girl magnet hanging in front of him: the used digital SLR he just received from his dad! But will just having a camera be enough to make talking to girls a snap? Well, if he stays focused and has enough talent to make them look good, it might just be! And since it’s digital, there are no negatives or having to wait for things to develop! Will Kazyuya’s new stock in trade click with the most beautiful girls in school, or will his career as a lensman be just a flash in the pan? Find out as he goes for total exposure in PHOTO KANO!”
PHOTO KANO will be available to Crunchyroll’s audience in the following territories: United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Finland, Norway, Sweden, and Denmark.
