Silver Link Producing “Miss Caretaker of Sunohara-sou”


So, ah… why am I reminded of Eiken?

Yesterday, an official website and Twitter account launched to announce that Nekoume’s Miss Caretaker of Sunohara-sou (Sunohara-Sō no Kanrinin-san) will receive an anime adaptation.

The site confirms that Silver Link is working on the project, and that it’s on track for a Summer 2018 première. A new visual, as well as the first staffers were also revealed. We break the details down below.

Casting

The series will star the following:

  • Ayaka Sunohara: Rina Satou
  • Aki Shiina: Eri Kitamura
  • Nana Sunohara: Ayane Sakura

Satou and Kitamura are reprising their roles from a previous Drama CD.

Nekoume’s Miss Caretaker of Sunohara-sou launched in the pages of Ichijinsha’s Manga 4-Koma Palette in 2014. The series’ third volume hit retailers on November 22. The second volume, which hit stores in July 2016, included the drama CD that saw Satou and Kitamura’s debut as their characters.

Manga resource Baka-Updates describes the title as:

Shiina Aki is constantly being treated like a girl due to his feminine looks so he decides to move to Tokyo and attend middle school in an attempt to change himself.

However what awaits him in his new home, Sunohara-sou, is the kind-hearted caretaker, Sunohara Ayaka and three female members of Aki’s new middle school’s student council, named Yukimoto Yuzu, Yamanashi Sumire, and Kazami Yuri.

And so begins Aki’s new life of living with four girls in Tokyo.

A teaser visual for the Miss Caretaker of Sunohara-sou manga was released last month, which you can check out below:
