Winter 2009 Update – KyoAni’s Munto TV series: Now, Not Later


Like the title says, it know appears that KyoAni’s Munto TV series, aka Sora o Miageru Shoujo no Hitomi ni Utsuru Sekai, will be starting January 14 and not in the spring. Since I haven’t seen many previews, including my own, mention this show and because this will be KyoAni’s first original tv series, I thought I should go more in-depth.


Official Site, Wiki entry

One of the first things that entered my mind when I realized this show was going to air in the winter season was this will mark the first time that KyoAni is doing two television shows at the same time. At this fact might bode well for those fans, including myself, that are waiting for a second season of Haruhi and more Full Metal Panic.

Here’s the staff and seiyuu list

Director, Series Composition, Screenplay: Yoshiji Kigami – directed the Munto OVAs

Music: Satoru Kousaki – music for Haruhi, Lucky Star, and Kannagi

Art Director: Seiki Tamura – art director for Michiko to Hatchin, Lucky Star, Munto, Haruhi


Munto : Daisuke Ono – Yukito (Air), Hosaka (Minami-Ke), Itsuki (Haruhi)

Yumemi Hidaka : Mai Aizawa – Ayame Jinguuji (Ga-Rei: Zero), Ayano Minegishi (Lucky Star)

Shigeru Hidaka : Hirokazu Hiramatsu Konata’s Dad (Lucky Star), Kohara Michael (Ga-Rei: Zero)

Suzume Imamura : Hiromi Konno Potato (Air), Akira Kogami (Lucky Star)

Takashi Tobe : Kaoru Mizuhara Yomi Isayama (Ga-Rei: Zero), Misao Kusakabe (Lucky Star)

Nozomi Hidaka : Kikuko Inoue Belldandy (Ah! My Goddess), Sanae Furukawa (Clannad), Uraha (Air)

Guridori : Minoru Shiraishi Taniguchi (Haruhi), Minoru Shiraishi (Lucky Star)

Gntarl : Norio Wakamoto Nabuu Brothers (Ga-Rei: Zero), Narrator (Hayate the Combat Butler)

Ryueli : Ryouko Tanaka Mei Isayama ( Ga-Rei: Zero)

The original OVAs are the only thing of Kyoto Animation that I haven’t seen. My only knowledge of the OVAs come from this awesome AMV (follow the link to download it and watch it below).

It seems like it could be a very interesting show and I’d imagine that Kyoto Animation will work hard to make sure that it’s first original TV series will be a success. And lastly the pictures where taken from the official website.

  1. I really liked the OVAs, so I’m definitely looking forward to this – the second (and final, so far) Munto OVA ended on a major cliffhanger, so I’m hoping they’ll start with the OVA storyline and then continue it as the TV series rolls on.


  2. @suguru: From what I’ve read the tv series will start off with the “director’s cut” of the OVAs before moving on.
