Hiraku Kaneko (The Qwaser of Stigmata, Valkyrie Drive: Mermaid) serves as general director
It is officially announced today that a TV anime adaptation of Soborou's comedy manga Nande Koko ni Sensei ga!?/Why the hell are you here, Teacher!? is now in the works. The anime's official website and Twitter opened today with a teaser anime visual of its main heroine Kana Kojima. Its broadcast schedule has not yet been confirmed.
The "a little indecent high school love comedy" manga has been serialized in Kodansha's Weekly Young
Magazine since its 21st issue of 2017. Its tankobon has printed over 850,000 copies and its latest fifth
volume is set to be released in Japan on October 5. Each volume contains omnibus episodes about a
different couple of a female high school teacher and her male student. The anime visual's Kana Kojima
is the main heroine of the first volume's story.
Hiraku Kaneko, best known for his directorial works for female-oriented anime series, including The Qwaser
of Stigmata (2010-2011), Manyu Hiken-chou (2011), and Valkyrie Drive: Mermaid (2015) serves as general
director at Tear Studio (Lord of Vermilion: The Crimson King/co-production with Asread), alongside character
designer Kazuhiko Tamura (Rin-ne, Kiss Him, Not Me).
Sumire Uesaka (Sanae Dekomori in Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions) is cast as the main heroine Kana
Kojima, while Ryota Suzuki (Yuuga Ohtas in Doreiku The Animation) voices her love interest Ichiro Sato.
