Short-form web anime based on popular yuri manga coming soon to Youtube
The preview version of Asagao to Kase-san, an upcoming short-form web anime adapting Hiromi Takashima's Kase-san and... yuri manga, is now available online, and we've also got the original author's reaction to seeing her work in motion.
The preview video features the song "Kimi no Egao (album ver.)" by Hanako Oku, and it includes the tagline: "Next to you, I saw the world blooming."
On her official blog, Hiromi Takashima described the preview video as "too beautiful" and "deeply moving", noting that she cried after watching it and expressing her thanks repeatedly. Takashima also posted the following to her official Twitter account:

Translation: "I watched the dispatch preview video. S-so great..."
Asagao to Kase-san is directed by Takuya Satō and features animation by ZEXCS. The current plans are to release a single, approximately 5 minute episode for the adaptation. Asagao to Kase-san will be released to Youtube later this year.
