A new visual was recently unveiled for the upcoming newlywed-themed anime series TONIKAWA: Over the Moon For You, the TV anime series adaptation of Kenjiro Hata’s 2018 manga series Fly Me to the Moon (Tonikaku Kawaii or literally, Generally Cute). Check out the visual below, which features main couple Nasa and Tsukasa in their wedding attires!
The series’ official website also revealed TONIKAWA’s October 2 premiere date.
Junya Enoki (Takezo Kurata in Kono Oto Tomare: Sounds of Life) will be playing Nasa, while Akari Kito (Nezuko Kamado in Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba) will be playing Tsukasa.
The series will be directed by Hiroshi Ikehata (Seton Academy: Welcome to the Pack), with Kazuho Hyodo (Kiratto Pri☆Chan) writing the series’ scripts. Character design will be done Masakatsu Sasaki (We Never Learn: BOKUBEN), with Goichi Iwahata in charge with props designs. Sound direction will be done by Satoshi Motoyama and “Endo” will be composing the music.
Anime News Network describes Fly Me to the Moon’s story as such:
“The comedy follows a boy named Nasa who meets a “generally cute” girl named Tsukasa on the day of his high school entrance exams, and immediately falls in love with her. Nasa confesses his feelings, but her response is that she will only go out with him if they get married. Years later, on Nasa’s 18th birthday, she suddenly appears to get married. Thus begins Nasa’s newlywed lifestyle.”
Author Kenjiro Hata is known to most anime fans as the creator of Hayate the Combat Butler, which ran from 2004 to 2017 and also received a TV anime adaptation that lasted for four seasons in 2007, 2009, 2012, and 2013.
Hata’s Fly Me to the Moon manga was launched last February 2018 in Shogakukan’s Weekly Shonen Sunday. Two days before the release of the manga, author Hata himself confirmed his marriage to his Seiyu’s Life manga story collaborator, voice actress Masumi Asano.
