The ComicFesta Anime website announced on Thursday, Aug 20 that Tamami Katsura‘s Otona nya Koi no Shikata ga Wakaranee! (Adults Are Clueless About Falling in Love!) manga is confirmed to inspire a television anime.
The anime will premiere on the Tokyo MX channel this October.
The romantic comedy centres around two people, both about 30. Mio Sudō is an office lady who has not had a boyfriend in five years and has forgotten what it is like to be in love. Shuji Majima is an overseas insurance consultant who has not had a girlfriend in seven years despite being highly eligible. Mio meets Shuji at a matchmaking party, but finds him revolting as he states, “I’m not into women.” However, a provocative comment by Mio takes things in an unexpected direction.
The cast includes:
- Kent Itō (on-air) and Chasuke (premium) as Shuji Majima
- Kaede Yuasa (on-air) and Yuzu-Hachimitsu (premium) as Mio Sudō
- Shin’ichirō Kamio (on-air) and Ichiya-Koi (premium) as Kōtarō Tokura
