Yamada-kun & the 7 Witches Crosses Over With Yankee-kun & Megane-chan In OVA Short

Yamada and the Seven Witches Key Visual 001 - 20150409Fans of Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches will be delighted to see this cross-over. The first DVD and Blu-Ray sets for the body-switching comedy will include a cross-over Yankee-kun to Megane-chan (Yankee-kun and Megane-chan) OVA as a bonus feature.

The OVA will feature the following voice cast:

  • Daichi Shinagawa: Yuuki Ono
  • Hana Adachi: Yōko Hikasa
  • Gaku Izumi: Takuma Terashima
  • Seiya Chiba: Tomoaki Maeno
  • Rinka Himeji: Mika Kikuchi

Both Yankee-kun to Megane-chan and Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches were created by Miki Yoshikawa. While Yankee-kun to Megane-chan was the earlier of the two works with a 2006 début, the series was never adapted to animation prior to the upcoming OVA.

In North America, Kodansha Comics publishes the Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches manga. The company describes the series as follows:

Class troublemaker Ryu Yamada is already having a bad day when he stumbles down a staircase along with star student Urara Shiraishi. When he wakes up, he realizes they have switched bodies—and that Ryu has the power to trade places with anyone just by kissing them!

After figuring out the workings behind this new and amazing ability, Ryu and Urara take full advantage of the situation to improve their lives. But with such an oddly amazing power, just how long will Ryu and Urara be able to keep their secret under wraps?

Subscribers to Crunchyroll’s Premium service can read chapters of the manga as a “simulpub.” Chapters are added weekly as they run in Japan.
