Staff member’s various reactions to the anime adaptation

Amagakure Gido Comment

Surprise, the galaxy next to you will be animated! I’ve already seen the character design drawings, and everyone from Goshiki-san to Machi-tachi to Kuga-kun is so cute and I’m so happy. Look forward to it!

Comment from Director Ryuichi Kimura

Goshiki-san and Kuga-kun’s incredibly straight and tingling love will be delivered straight and vividly to everyone. Whether you’ve forgotten about love or you’re in love right now,
please watch it together! looking forward to!

Comment from Taku Yashiro (role of Ichiro Kuga)

This time, I will appear as Ichiro Kuga in the TV anime “My Neighbor Ginga”. I will do my best to portray him as straight, clumsy, and empathetic. I would be happy if you could enjoy the world view of this work, which is a mixture of the warmth of family love and the mysterious fantasy, even in the animation! Thank you for your support!

Comment from Yu Wakui (role of Shiori Goshiki)

It’s sweet, it’s heart-pounding, and it’s a bit painful… While I was reading the original work, my heart felt tight again and again. I will do my best to express Shiori-chan’s sparkling expression and honest feelings in the anime, so please give me your support.

Kodansha USA is publishing the manga in English and depicts the plot as:

“Ever since their father died, Ichirou Kuga has struggled to support his two younger siblings on nothing but a small inheritance and his passion for drawing manga. But it’s becoming harder to keep up with his growing responsibilities and deadlines, especially after his last two assistants quit to follow their dreams. Just as he’s nearing his breaking point, the beautiful and scarily competent Shiori Goshiki applies to become his new assistant. But there’s something almost otherworldly about Goshiki, and soon Kuga finds his reality turned upside down when she suddenly declares them engaged to marry!”
