Even though parts of the country is under the snow, this series aims to bring back the rain.

Earlier today, the official Koi wa Ameagari no You ni (Love is Like After the Rain) anime website updated with a new key visual and trailer, as well as several new cast members. We break the details down below:


The 98-second trailer offers a brief overview of the show’s plot, using character dialogue to convey the core story beats. Theme songs Nostalgic Rainfall by CHICO and Honeyworks and Ref:rain by Aimer are used as background musical tracks.
