Piacevole! My Italian Cooking Anime’s 1st Promo Video Streamed
The official website for Piace: Watashi no Italian (Piacevole! My Italian Cooking), the anime adaptation of Atsuko Watanabe‘s Piacevole! manga, began streaming the anime’s first full promotional video on Friday.
The site previously streamed a character introduction trailer in October.
The anime will premiere on Tokyo MX on January 11 at 10:30 p.m. and then on Sun TV on January 12 at 12:00 a.m.
The show stars:
- Sayaka Senbongi as Morina Nanase
- Yūki Yonai as Mallow Kitahara
- Yōhei Azakami as Kirihide Konno
- Yōko Hikasa as Ruri Fujiki
- Taku Yashiro as Ei Oreki
- Hiromi Igarashi as Sara Teiri
Hiroaki Sakurai (Kodocha, Di Gi Charat, Maid Sama!) is directing the anime at Zero-G, with Watanabe herself drawing the anime’s character designs. Reiji Kasuga (Sasami: Magical Girls Club, Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu, GA: Geijutsuka Art Design Class) is credited as art director.
Crunchyroll is releasing the manga in English digitally, and it describes the series:
High schooler Morina Nanase starts work at Trattoria Festa, an Italian restaurant filled with various and sundry quirky characters…and where through its unique cuisine, she will begin to mature as a person.
Watanabe (Heavy Object, Hanayamata) has worked as an animator and character designer on numerous anime projects before starting Piacevole! in the Comico manga app in 2013 (under the pen name Nab_At.) Taibundou released the first compiled book volume in September 2015.
