It looks like more yuri anime may be on the way, according to a “flying get” report based on an enigmatic poster spotted at the Yuriten 2017 event, which was held at the Ikebukuro Marui department store in Tokyo on March 18, 2017.

The poster was spotted next to the booth of yuri manga author Hiromi Takashima, and it hints that her series, Kase-san and…, may be being adapted into a work of animation. The specific format of the rumored anime adaptation has not yet been revealed, but the poster lists Takuya Satō (Strawberry Marshmallow) as director and Kyuta Sakai (Fruits Basket) as key animator. The title of the anime is listed as Asagao to Kase-san.
The Kase-san and… manga was originally serialized in Shinshokan’s Hirari manga magazine before moving to the Flash Wings web publication. An English language version of the manga is published by Seven Seas Entertainment, who describe Kase-san and… as follows:
“Yamada may be shy and rather clumsy, but the flower gardens at her school have always brought her happiness. Suddenly, a different sort of beauty catches her eye—the vivacious track star, Kase-san. Although the two girls don’t seem to have much in common, they soon start a romance where each must learn an important lesson in tending their budding relationship. Can the two girls, so different from each other, learn how to make their first love blossom?”
