Note: As always, I stress that this is unconfirmed outside of this poster – no formal announcement has been made by a studio, so this should be treated with a grain of salt.
So, is this a tease of a true love story for yuri fans?
This year’s YuriTen 2017 event was held at Tokyo’s Ikebukuro Marui department store on March 18. At the event, a poster was put up, which hints at a Kase-san and… anime project.
The poster lists Takuya Satō (Steins;Gate, NieA_7) as the title’s director, with Kyuta Sakai serving as key animator. The poster lists the title as Asagao to Kase-san (Asagao and Kase-san).
Hiromi Takashima’s Kase-san and… manga began publication in Shinshokan’s Hirari and Flash Wings magazines. The ongoing series currently spans three collected volumes, with the most recent hitting stores in November 2015.
Seven Seas currently holds the domestic rights to Kase-san and…. They describe the series as:
Yamada may be shy and rather clumsy, but the flower gardens at her school have always brought her happiness. Suddenly, a different sort of beauty catches her eye—the vivacious track star, Kase-san. Although the two girls don’t seem to have much in common, they soon start a romance where each must learn an important lesson in tending their budding relationship. Can the two girls, so different from each other, learn how to make their first love blossom?
