    Read the full statement from Hana to Yume below:

    “‘Hana-Kimi’ is becoming an anime!

    This is a project that’s been discussed for a while with Hisaya Nakajo-sensei as we moved things forward.
    Nakajo-sensei had been watching over the rough drafts of the characters and the scenario, and she was looking forward to seeing the world of “Hana-Kimi” presented in a different way than the manga.

    It’s very unfortunate that we weren’t able to see the completed product along with Sensei, but because of the passionate support of the readers, ‘Hana-Kimi’ is coming back again in the form of an anime right around the 20th anniversary of when the manga ended, and we are truly grateful for that fact.

    Hana to Yume editorial department and the production staff have been working together so that we can live up to the expectations of Nakajo-sensei and the readers, so please look forward to the broadcast!”
