TV anime based on romance manga by Jun Mayuzuki heads to Fuji TV's "noitaminA" block in January of 2018
The rainy season gives way to summer in a new key visual for After the Rain (known in Japan as Koi wa Ameagari no You ni), an upcoming TV anime based on the youth love story romance manga by Jun Mayuzuki about a high school girl who secretly becomes infatuated with an older man.
The original Koi wa Ameagari no You ni manga is serialized in Shogakukan's Weekly Big Comic Spirits seinen manga magazine. The series tells the story of Akira Tachibana, a 17 year old 2nd year high school student who is known for her cool and emotionally detached demeanor. Akira is secretly in love with the hapless, middle-aged manager at the family restaurant where she works part-time.
The After the Rain TV anime will begin broadcasting as part of Fuji TV's "noitaminA" anime block in January of 2018. The series will also be digitally distributed in Japan and in other world markets by Amazon Prime.
