Japanese publishing company Hakusensha revealed a visual for the television anime adaptation of Hari Tokeino‘s Gakuen Babysitters manga on Friday. The visual features the show’s main characters Ryūichi and Kotarō. The 12-episode anime will premiere in the first quarter of 2018 on Tokyo MX, BS11, and Animax.
Tokeino launched the series in LaLa in 2009, and Hakusensha published the manga’s 13th compiled volume on August 5. Hakusensha will publish the manga’s 14th compiled volume on April 5.
The manga centers on the brothers Ryūichi and Kotarō Kashima. Ryūichi is in high school and Kotarō is still a toddler. After their parents are killed in a plane crash, the two brothers find themselves living with the chairwoman of the Morinomiya Academy, who herself lost her son and daughter-in-law in the same accident. The chairwoman, however, has one stipulation for the brothers in order to live with her: Ryūichi has to work at the academy’s daycare center as a babysitter.
Tokyopop published Tokeino’s 11-volume Me & My Brothers manga in English in 2007-2010.
