As a special White Day treat, the official website for upcoming TV anime adaptation of Waka Kakitsubata's love comedy manga Akkun to Kanojo (Akkun and His Girlfriend) today posted a newly-drawn illustration by the manga author featuring its six main characters: the protagonist Atsuhiro "Akkun" Kagari with the main heroine Non "Nontan" Katagiri, Akkun's friend Masago Matsuo with Akkun's younger sister Chiho, and Akkun's homeroom teacher Takumi Kubomura with Akkun's classmate Konagi Irie who has an unrequited love for him.
The TV anime adaptation is set to premiere on At-X on April 6, then on Tokyo MX three days later.
Shin Katagai (Eyeshield 21, Yuruyuri episode director) is attached to direct the adaptation at Yumeta
Company, alongside character designer Motohiro Taniguchi (Yuruyuri Nachuyachumi!, Yuruyuri San Hai!).
The story centers on a strange relationship between Atsuhiro "Akkun" Kagari and his girlfriend, Non
"Nontan" Katagiri. Although Akkun truly loves Nontan from the bottom of his heart (he even secretly
stalks her), he always heaps abuse on her and gives her the cold shoulder. Meanwhile, Nontan dose
not care about his cold and cruel attitude at all, and dedicates her love for him.
