Blue Skies Follow Stormy Weather in "After the Rain" Key Visual
Blue skies follow stormy weather in a metaphorical new key visual (above) for After the Rain (known as Koi wa Ameagari no You ni in Japan), an upcoming TV anime based on the “heartrending love story” manga by Jun Mayuzuki about a teenage girl who experiences a turbulent, unrequited love for a much older man.
The original Koi wa Ameagari no You ni manga is serialized in Shogakukan’s Weekly Big Comic Spirits seinen manga magazine. The series tells the story of Akira Tachibana, a 17 year old 2nd year high school student who is known for her cool and emotionally detached demeanor. Akira is secretly in love with the hapless, middle-aged manager at the family restaurant where she works part-time.
The After the Rain TV anime will begin broadcasting as part of Fuji TV’s “noitaminA” anime block in January of 2018. The series will also be digitally distributed in Japan and in other world markets by Amazon Prime.
