VIDEO: First "Aiura" Anime Preview

"Aiura" is set to join the ranks of school girl four-panel manga adaptations this April

Not to be confused with the anime movie adaptation of Humanity Has Declined author Romeo Tanaka's AURA, Aiura is one of the spring's adaptations of cute girls doing nothing four panel manga. This one is distinguished by a cast of girls who seem to be actively unproductive and a particularly interesting creative staff.




 Staff includes:

  • Director, Screenplay: Ryosuke Nakamura (anime movie Nerawareta Gakuen, episode six of Occult AcademyAoi Bungaku's Run, Melos! adaptation)
  • Character design: Mieko HOSO (collaborator on  Nerawareta Gakuen and Aoi Bungaku)
  • Art director: Hidetoshi Kaneko
  • Color design: Takahiro Mogi
  • Director of photography: Shinichi Igarashi
  • Editing: Bun Hida 
  • Sound director: Youji Shimizu
  • Sound production: Tohokushinsha Film
  • Music: Shusei Murai 
  • Music production: Pony Canyon
  • Animation production: LIDENFILMS
All three principal cast members are fresh to anime, with minor roles at most on their résumé.

Kanaka Amaya - Yui Nakajima

Saki Iwasawa - Yuko Iida

Ayuko Uehara - Nao Tamura
