A new preview video and new cast additions have been published for Watashi ni Tenshi ga Maiorita! (“An Angel Swooped Down on Me!”), an upcoming TV anime adaptation based on the humorous 4-panel manga by Nanatsu Mukunoki about an awkward, shut-in college student who becomes obsessed with becoming friends with her younger sister’s peer group.
The new cast members for Watashi ni Tenshi ga Maiorita! include:
Hitomi Ōwada as Koyori Tanemura.
And Naomi Ohzora as Kanon Konomori.
Additionally, the opening theme for the series, entitled “Kimama na Tenshi-tachi” (“Carefree Angels”), is performed by Wataten☆5, a voice unit composed of Maria Sashide, Rika Nagae, Akari Kitō, Hitomi Ōwada, and Naomi Ohzora.
The original Watashi ni Tenshi ga Maiorita! manga is serialized in Ichinjinsha’s Comic Yuri Hime manga magazine. The story follows Miyako Hoshino, a geeky and socially anxious college student, whose heart goes pitter-patter when she meets Hana Shirosaki, the classmate of Miyako’s little sister, Hinata. Unfortunately for everyone involved, Hinata and her friends are only in the 5th grade, but Miyako will do her best to get along well with everyone in this “transcendently cute” sketch comedy.
The Watashi ni Tenshi ga Maiorita! TV anime is directed by Daisuke Hiramaki and features animation production by Doga Kobo. The series will broadcast in Japan beginning in January of 2019.
