Based on the manga by Eku Takeshima, Whisper Me a Love Song is being directed by Xinya Cai (The Genius Prince’s Guide to Raising a Nation Out of Debt assistant director) at studio CLOUDHEARTS, with series composition by Hiroki Uchida (Requiem of the Rose King) and character designs by Minami Yoshida (Princess Connect! Re:Dive chief animation director).
As for the cast, Hana Shimano will take on her first main role as Himari Kino, while the experienced Asami Seto (Mai Sakurajime in Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai) will be the target of her puppy-like affections as Yori Asanagi.
Kodansha USA, who publishes the manga’s official English version, describes the first volume as such:
Bubbly, energetic first-year high school student Himari falls head over heels for her senpai Yori after hearing her band perform on the first day of school. Himari tells Yori she just loves her, and, to Himari’s surprise, Yori says she loves Himari back! But when Himari realizes that she and her senpai are feeling two different kinds of love, she begins to ask herself what “love” really means…
