On the official website of the anime adaptation of “Koi to Yobu ni wa Kimochi Warui” (It’s Disgusting to Call This Love), a first promo video, another visual and some speakers including character designs were unveiled today. You can find the video and the pictures below in the article.
Series starts in April 2021
The anime series is directed by Naomi Nakayama (“Orange”) in Studio Nomad. Taku Yamada (episode director for “Rent-A-Girlfriend”) acts as assistant director, while Yuuko Kakihara (“Orange”) writes the script and Mariko Fujita contributes the character design. Hiroaki Tsutsumi composes the music.
“Koi to Yobu ni wa Kimochi Warui” will be shown on Japanese television from April 2021. In addition, Amazon Prime Video has secured exclusive streaming rights to the series in Japan. It is still unclear whether this will have an effect on a English simulcast.
Author and illustrator Mogusu started the original manga in 2015 in Ichijinsha’s “Comic Pool” magazine. The publisher has so far brought seven volumes in the series, which is currently still running, on the market.
