Jin Kobayashi’s romance, comedy, shounen manga “Natsu no Arashi!” 夏のあらし! or the Summer Storm to be animated next year.


Said on the January montly issue of Square Enix’s Gangan Wing mag which was released this november.

Story begins on an old town coffee shop, when a boy by the name of  Yasaka met an older high school girl named . From there, everything was… An unforgettable summer began.natsunoarashi1

13 year-old Hajime Yasaka is a boy staying at his grandfather’s house during his summer vacation. One day he entered a store and met Sayoko “Arashi” Arashiyama, a beautiful 16-year old girl working there. After trying to protect her from a man who claims to have been hired by her family to take her back by force, Yasaka ran away with her and now she stays at his grandpa’s place with him. It didn’t take much time for Yasaka to figure out that his new friend is far from an ordinary girl, as she possesses mysterious powers. The plot thickens when he finds a 60 year old picture of Arashi and another girl named Kaja, and to the surprise of all Kaja suddenly appears, and just like Arashi, her appearance hasn’t changed at all since then.

Two other characters introduced so far are the place’s owner, a woman whose name is still unrevealed and rumored to be a high level con artist, and Kamigamo, a student of Yasaka’s age who he met at the store, and works there with him since then. Despite being a girl, she keeps dressing and addressing herself as a boy to the other characters. So far only Kaja knows her secret.

Jin Kobayashi was the original creator of School Rumble, and SHAFT as the animating studio for this series.

    … SHAFT.

    Expect the plot to be irrelevant, but the anime to WIN.

    Shaft is known for making un-canon epic chaos-lulzfests. Negima!? is a good example.
