‘Story of a Small Senior in My Company’, an Office Romantic Comedy set for a July release

What could be better for a worker than to establish meaningful connections with his coworkers that will continue for years to come? A sexual relationship, however, is guaranteed to complicate matters, especially if neither partner has spoken out about it.

An employee and his female superior had an amorous encounter in “Story of a Small Senior in My Company”. In spite of the senior’s ‘older-sister-like’ behavior, the worker can’t help but question whether there’s more to it than meets the eye. In any case, it restores him and keeps him inspired daily.

This past Friday, a new trailer for the anime “Story of a Small Senior in My Company” was posted online. More members of the cast and crew, as well as the release date of July 1, are all introduced in the video’s opening sequence.

Shiori Katase, a senior coworker, is shown patting her subordinate, Takuma Shinozaki, on the back in the preview. Despite his discomfort, Shinozaki enjoys spending time with her. It appears that Shiori enjoys his company as well. Chihiro Akina, Chinatsu Hayakawa, and Yutaka Shinozaki, three new characters, are introduced.

Tya Kobayashi sang the theme song “Honey” for the show’s intro. YU-KA also confirmed that “sugar” would serve as the credits’ final tune.

The website and trailer also provide an introduction to the voice actors:
