Hanazawa Kana and Yuuki Aoi will co-star in a new short anime to begin December 17.
The anime is called Yakimochi Kyousoukyoku Kapurisu ("Jealousy Rhapsody Caprice"). It stars Kana-chan and Ao-chan as a puppy and a kitten who think they are human girls and are always competing to be tops.
It will be shown as the ending sequence of the anime TV show Anime Seijin -- Tokimeki Reshipii ("Anime Alien -- Exciting Recipe"). The show features two hosts (currently Ueda Kana and Shimizu Kaori), talking and cooking together. Previous hosts have included Maeno Tomoaki and KENN, Kakihara Tetsuya and Eguchi Takuya, et al.
Here are Ao-chan and Kana-chan with their characters, Ruu the kitten and Nowa the puppy:
This reunites the two seiyuus, who starred together in the hilarious short anime Yutori-chan early last year. They did a radio show together for that show, and their very different styles made it quite amusing. They have both had a lot more radio experience since, so it would be interesting to hear them together again.
I guess I should add that I am not a hundred percent sure whether they will just produce one sequence, or whether it will be a series of little episodes.
