On the official site for the animated adaptation of the manga written and illustrated by Kenjirou Hata, Tonikaku Kawaii (TONIKAWA: Over the Moon For You), a new promo image for the project’s upcoming OVA was posted. The OVA, titled “Tonikaku Kawaii: SNS”, will premiere in Japan and on the Crunchyroll platform on August 18.
Hata began publishing the manga through Shogakukan publisher’s Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine in February 2018. The publisher published the fourteenth compiled volume in December 2020, followed by the fifteenth in April 2021 in Japan. The play inspired a twelve-episode anime adaptation produced by Seven Arcs Studios, directed by Hiroshi Ikehata and scripts written by Kazuho Hyodo, released in October 2020.
Tonikaku Kawaii Synopsis
Nasa Yuzaki is determined to leave her name in the history books. By ranking first in the mock national exam and targeting a distinguished preparatory school, he is confident that he has his whole life planned out. However, fate is a fickle lover. On the way home one snowy night, Nasa’s eyes fall on unparalleled beauty across the street. Spellbound, Nasa tries to approach her, only to be surprised by a truck approaching her.
Fortunately, his life is saved due to the girl’s quick action. Bleeding beside an ambulance, he watches the girl drift away under the moonlight, reminiscent of Princess Kaguya setting off for the moon. Refusing to let this chance encounter end, he forces her crippled body to chase after her and invites her out of it. Surprised by her recklessness and her sheer resolve, the girl accepts her confession on one condition: they can only be together if he marries her!
