The series is the collaborative project of Asahi Production and CJT. Mankyuu, who has previously worked on "The Idolm@ster Cinderella Girls Gekijou," will serve as both director and script supervisor. The character designs will be handled by Tomonori Kogawa, whose previous works include "Densetsu Kyojin Ideon" and "Aura Battler."

It tells the story of a guy named Nori Kamitsuki, who moves from Chiba Prefecture to a fictionalized version of Gunma located in the northwest of Tokyo. The prefecture of Gunma has quite a fearsome reputation online, and it is because of this that Nori feels wary about moving to this place.

But his impression of Gunma will eventually change as he makes and forges connections with the people who live, love, and uphold the true values and cultures of the often misrepresented place. This does not, however, mean that Nori will not suffer from bouts of culture shock along the way.

The source manga, written and illustrated by Ida, debuted online via Shinchosa's "Kurage Bunch" website in 2013 and has since been published in eight collected volumes. It was then adapted into a four-episode live-action television series, as well as a live-action film in 2017.

The series and the film both starred Shotaro Mamiya as the protagonist Nori.

Additional information about the "Omae wa Mada Gunma wo Shiranai" anime adaptation will be available in the coming days.
