12-minute anime short to ship with home video release on March 19

The official website for Engaged to the Unidentified, the television anime adaptation of Cherry Arai’s Mikakunin de Shinkōkei comedy manga, revealed on Tuesday that the show’s first DVD and Blu-ray Disc release in Japan will include an original video anime. The “Mite. Are ga Watashi-tachi no Tomatteiru Ryokan yo.” (Look. That is the Japanese Inn Where We Are Staying.) short will be approximately 12-minutes long.

The first of six total home video releases will ship on March 19. The release will also include a music video for the “Tomadoi→Recipe” song, as well as a character song CD and a collection of four-panel illustrations of next episode previews.

First limited editions will also include an application for priority tickets for an event, and a digipak case.

The show centers on first-year high school student Kobeni Yonomori. On her 16th birthday, a young man with little presence named Hakuya Mitsumine and his little sister Mashiro suddenly appear in front of her. It turns out that Hakuya is her fiancé, and Mashiro is her future sister-in-law. The three (and Konbeni’s big sister Benio) start living together underneath the same roof, and hilarious happenings occur.

The television anime series premiered in Japan on January 8. Crunchyroll is streaming the series as it airs and Sentai Filmworks has licensed the series for home video.

So is Hakuya a Wolf spirit or something?

It certainly seems like it!

[quote=“Series5Ranger”]Ep.4

So is Hakuya a Wolf spirit or something?

That’s just about the best guess I could come up with as well.

At first I though his family was a bunch of shinobi, with the “arrow letters”.
Then with all the alien stuff in the OP I thought they might that too.
Now, with all the “dog” references in ep. 04, I’m leaning towards a family of shape shifters or dog deities.

Episode 5 -

[details=spoiler]So, mom spilled the beans and the family isn’t human. And Kobeni gets a flash of memory. But I laughed when Benio thought they were fairies. Still, Shirayuki was a little vague as to what they really are. “Demons, monsters, ogres, spirits” covers a wide range. But thinking of this, the title makes me laugh now. Still, it’s sad to know that these spirits are losing their homes and that their population is decreasing.

Interesting that Shirayuki tells Kobeni that Hakuya gave Kobeni half his power to save her life. She feels that explains Kobeni’s health problems, being that the power given to her isn’t human. Shirayuki doesn’t stay long, which is a shame. She’s so cute! And she has such a sweet tooth too. A few parting words to Kobeni explains why Hakuya rubs her head. That was really very touching![/details]

Ep. 06

So it looks like they’re dog shape shifters after all.

Episode 6 –

[details=spoiler]I wonder if Kobeni might feel a bit obligated to marry Hakuya now that she knows more of the facts. He did save her life after all. But I also don’t think Hakuya would accept her under those circumstances. Still, Kobeni can’t quite believe the truth and seems a little disappointed when Hakuya won’t transform for her. But she does start comparing him to a dog. LOL

I’m glad Kobeni finally gave Hakuya his chocolates. That took forever, but made Hakuya very happy![/details]
