The official website
for this summer's TV anime series Chouyaku Hyakunin Isshu: Uta Koi.
has been updated with several bits of news. They're mostly irrelevant stuff, but among them is also the announcement of the anime's broadcast starting date in Japan - set for July 2. Additionally, a new key visual
is now being displayed there, as well as below (essentially leaving you with no reason to bother visiting the official page, how convenient!).
This TV anime adaptation, simply known as Uta Koi., was announced
back in March. Studio TYO Animations is creating it, based on a historical josei (for women) manga by Kei Sugita. "Uta koi" itself means "love song(s)" or, in this case, "love poem(s)".
In turn, the manga is a "super-liberal interpretation" of the Hyakunin Isshu anthology compiled during Japan's Heian period (in the late 1100s), of 100 romantic poems from 100 different poets.
A brief teaser trailer
was also revealed at the time of the initial announcement. Still no footage from the anime, though...
