HIDIVE announced today that it acquired exclusive rights to Love Flops, an original, genre blending, sci-fi rom-com anime from Kadokawa (Made in Abyss; No Game, No Life). The series will premiere exclusively on HIDIVE this fall.
Synopsis: Asahi Kashiwagi lives the typical life of an average high school student — until the day a TV fortune teller’s predictions come true one after another, culminating in a series of risqué encounters! Destiny seemingly draws five beautiful girls into Asahi’s path, and soon he finds himself fielding not one, not two, but five love confessions. Asahi will need to follow his heart to find the perfect love for him, or else his love fortunes may end in one epic flail and flop.
Love Flops stars Ryota Osaka (Nariyuki Yuiga in We Never Learn: BOKUBEN) as Asahi Kashiwagi, Miku Ito (Miku Nakano in The Quintessential Quintuplets) as Aoi Izumisawa, Ayana Taketatsu (Kotori Itsuka in Date A Live) as Amelia Irving, Rie Takahashi (Takagi in Teasing Master Takagi-san3) as Ilya Ilyukhin, Hisako Kanemoto (Erina Nakiri in Food Wars!) as Bai Mongfa, Marika Kohno (Petra Leyte in Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World) as Karin Istel and Jun Fukuyama (Lelouch Lamperouge in Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion) as Yoshio Ijūin.
Love Flops has been adapted into a manga series illustrated by artist Ryudai Ishizaka, and it is currently serialized in Hakusensha’s Young Animal magazine. Sentai is on board for the series’ upcoming home video release.
