A website and Twitter account opened on Thursday to announce that Nanashi's Don't Mess with Me, Nagatoro (Ijiranaide, Nagatoro-san) manga is inspiring a television anime. Sumire Uesaka voices the titular heroine Nagatoro.
Vertical publishes the manga in English, and it describes the romantic comedy story:
Mischievous Nagatoro-san always bugs Senpai to get a reaction out of him.
What is her motivation? Does she just want to create misery for Senpai?
Or maybe she secretly likes him?
Hirokazu Hanai (Dances with the Dragons) is directing the anime at Telecom Animation Film, and Taku Kishimoto (ERASED, 2019's Fruits Basket, Haikyu!!) is supervising the series scripts. Misaki Suzuki (sub-character designs on Lupin the Third: Part 5, Tari Tari) is designing the characters, and Gin (Busted Rose) from Pop Team Epic and Why the Hell are You Here, Teacher!? is composing the music.
Nanashi debuted the manga on Kodansha's Magazine Pocket website in November 2017. The eighth compiled volume will ship in Japan on July 9, and Vertical will publish the fourth volume in English on August 25.
