'First Published on Manga. Tokyo'
The game smartphone game 18 – Kimi ni tsunagaru Puzzle has already exceeded 2 million downloads. Based on this successful game, the anime 18if will air starting July 2017. As the broadcasting date gets closer, we have received new information about the series, such as the main staff, main cast and a new teaser visual. And on top of that, their homepage has been renewed!
Although the general director has already been announced to be Koji Morimoto, it has also been announced that each episode will be produced under a different director. If we think of anime that has different directors for each episode, the 2010 anime Mayoi Neko Overrun! comes to mind, so we wonder who will work on this project and what unique style they will provide each episode.
