Maiden Japan to Deliver KANAMEMO to North American Doorsteps
Source: Maiden Japan press release
Maiden Japan is pleased to announce the addition of KANAMEMO (かなめも, 2009), a slice-of-life comedy with strong yuri (girl/girl romance) overtones, to its expanding roster of titles. Anime studio feel. (DAGASHI KASHI, MY TEEN ROMANTIC COMEDY SNAFU TOO!) and director Shigehito Takayanagi (DAGASHI KASHI, THE WORLD ONLY GOD KNOWS) helm the 13 episode series while Rika Nakase (FUSHIGIBOSHI NO FUTAGO HIME, ROCKET GIRLS) is in charge of the series composition.
13 is really young to have to take care of yourself, but when her grandmother dies, Kana Nakamachi unexpectedly finds herself out on the street looking for a new place to live. Fortunately, luck takes her to a local newspaper office that needs a new delivery girl, and the pay includes room and board! Of course, there are a few problems at first: besides being underage, Kana doesn’t even know how to ride a bike! So it’s a good thing that her new co-workers are willing to help her out, even if most of them are more than a little eccentric. But between Saki, the group’s elementary school age chief, sugar-obsessed Yume, her neurotic girlfriend Yuuki, tomboyish Hinata, and lecherous Haruka, they’ll get Kana up, on her feet and delivering papers with a smile!
The series stars Aki Toyosaki (K-ON!, MADE IN ABYSS) as Kana Nakamachi, Kaoru Mizuhara (BERSERK, SAMURAI BRIDE) as Saki Amano, Ryo Hirohashi (ARIA THE ANIMATION, MY HERO ACADEMIA) as Yume Kitaoka, Eri Kitamura (CORPSE PARTY: TORTURED SOULS, KNIGHTS OF SIDONIA) as Hinata Azuma, Yui Horie (FAIRY TAIL, FRUITS BASKET) as Haruka Nishida and Aya Endo (BORUTO: NARUTO THE NEXT GENERATIONS, CELLS AT WORK!) as Yuuki Minami.
This series will soon be available to stream on select digital outlets with a home video release to follow.
