Ao-chan Can’t Study! Gets Anime TV Series (NSFW)


On December 3, an official website and Twitter account opened their doors to announce that Ao-chan Can’t Study! (Midarana Ao-chan wa Benkyō ga Dekinai) will get an anime TV series. The first key visual, as well as the main staff were revealed for the project.

We break the details down below.

Staff

Keisuke Inoue will helm the project at Silver Link, with Miwa Oshima (Baka and Test – Summon the Beasts, Gugure! Kokkuri-san) providing character designs. Michiko Yokote (Cute High Earth Defense Club LOVE!, ReLIFE) is in charge of series composition.

Ren Kawahara’s Ao-chan Can’t Study! manga launched in the pages of Kodansha’s Shōnen Magazine Edge magazine in October 2015. The series currently spans seven compiled volumes, with the latest hitting stores on September 14.

Kodansha Comics releases the title in North America. They describe it as:

When Ao was in kindergarten, she smiled ear-to-ear as she told her classmates how her father (a bestselling erotic author) chose her name: “A as in apple and O as in orgy!” That day still haunts her ten years later as she studies with a single goal in mind: get into an elite university and achieve independence from her father once and for all. She has no youth to misspend and no time to think about boys … until her classmate, “King Normie” Kijima, approaches her with a shocking confession of love. She tries to lose Kijima, but he just can’t take a hint … and as her mind runs wild with impure thoughts, she realizes her father has totally influenced her!
