HiDive Picks Up Romantic Anime ‘Insomniacs After School’

Sentai Filmworks has acquired the North American distribution rights to release the upcoming romantic slice-of-life anime ‘Insomniacs After School,’ releasing it on the HiDive streaming service.

“Wondering when you can watch Insomniacs after school (Kimi wa Houkago Insomnia) on HIDIVE? Wonder no more! Mark your calendars, ’cause the anime starts Monday, April 10, 2023,” HiDive said on their website.

Directed by Yūki Ikeda, the anime is being developed by Liden Films with Rintarō Ikeda working on the scripts and character designs handled by Yuki Fukuda. The music is composed by Yuki Hayashi with the theme song “Itsu Aetara” being performed by singer Aiko. The ending song “Lapse” is done by the band Homecomings. They will debut it on TV Tokyo.

It stars Gen Satō (Pretty Boy Detective Club) as Ganta Nakami and Konomi Tamura (The Makanai: Cooking for the Maiko House) as Isaki Magari. They are joined in the cast by Haruka Tomatsu, Seiichiro Yamashita, Lynn, Natsumi Fujiwara, Sumire Morohoshi, Mamiko Noto, and Shō Karino.

The anime is based on the romantic drama manga of the same name written and illustrated by Makoto Ojiro. It is published by the Tokyo-based publisher Shogakukan and serialized in their ‘Weekly Big Comic Spirits’ magazine since 2019. Viz Media acquired the rights to publish the manga in the United States in 2023.

Wikipedia describes the synopsis as follows,

“In the small city of Nanao, insomniac Ganta Nakami tries to catch a nap in his school’s abandoned astronomical observatory. There he stumbles upon a sociable and carefree girl named Isaki Magari who has the same problem. The two form an awkward friendship and reestablish their school’s defunct astronomy club.”

Japanese director Chihiro Ikeda is helming a live-action adaption of the manga produced by United Productions. It is being released by Pony Canyon in the Summer of 2023.
