###Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo Light Novels Get TV Anime

Hajime Kamoshida’s story of boy who must take care of a girl like she is his pet

A television anime adaptation of Hajime Kamoshida’s Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo light novel series has been green-lit. The school romantic comedy revolves around a second-year high school student named Sorata Kanda who lives in Sakurasou, the dormitory for problem children at Sorata’s school. One day, Mashiro Shiina — a cute girl who happens to be also a cosmopolitan, brilliant artist — moves into Sakurasou.

Sorata thinks to himself that he should protect Mashiro from the weirdoes at Sakurasou, but Mashiro has a surprising secret: she has no idea how to take care of herself. She gets lost if she goes out, and her room is a complete mess. Sorata’s dorm mates designate him as the “master” of Mashiro, and thus, an ordinary boy and a brilliant girl must live like “a master and his pet.”

The following voice cast will play the characters:
Yoshitsugu Matsuoka as Sorata Kanda
Ai Kayano as Mashiro Shiina
Mariko Nakatsu as Nanami Aoyama
Natsumi Takamori as Misaki Kamiigusa
Takahiro Sakurai as Jin Mitaka
Yui Horie as Ryūnosuke Akasaka
Megumi Toyoguchi as Chihiro Sengoku
Voice not yet revealed for Maid-chan

Kamoshida launched the light novel series in 2010, and the seventh volume is shipping this month. The story already inspired a manga series that Hōki Kusano started last year, as well as a drama CD.

The future website of the anime will be at, a domain name registered by the Japanese production company Media Factory.

This anime is telegraphing the conclusion as of Ep. 5:

[details=spoiler]Let’s see , we have a world Class Animator, Artist, and Programmer, a decent script writer, and a wanna be voice actress.

and we have Sorata, who wants to make a game. What would you need to make the most kick ass game?
(see above).

-The non predictable part is whether Sorata will end up with Aoyama or Mashiro, since they both like him.[/details]

Ep. 6

Jin makes a decision, Misaki isn’t as clueless as Jin thinks she is. Nanami finally crashes hard, and Sorata and Mashiro pick up the pieces

What with the untranslated text scrolling along the bottom?

Please be more specific - at what point does this happen?

I think it’s an embedded JP advert
It’s in both episodes right after the OP.

It’s an advertisement for, I believe, the DVD release in Japan.

It wasn’t relevant to the show itself, so it was left untranslated. :slight_smile: It is confusing, though!

Yeah, I was pretty sure it was a JP advert.
Oreimo had a similar scrolling text when it was being simulcast on ANN.

Ep. 7

Sorata’s little sister comes to visit and in a typical Anime fashion she has a brother complex. The misunderstandings start immediately. Oh and Misaki takes some driving lessons.

Did you get a synopsis somewhere for ep. 7? It has not been shown yet legally from what I can tell.

Yes I have seen the episode. Won’t list the link here for obvious reasons, just in case. If the mods are reading this and want said link to investigate please PM me.

It is legally viewable.

Whatever you all do, Don’t miss episode 8. It drives home why Misaki is my favorite character at times.
