The April 2016 issue of Kodansha's good! Afternoon magazine, which will go on sale on March 7, has announced that Gido Amagakure's slice-of-life comedy manga Amaama to Inazuma will be adapted into a TV anime. The series will begin airing in July 2016.

Amaama to Inazuma has been serialized in the magazine since 2013 and has five volumes in print. A sixth volume is scheduled to go on sale on March 7. The first four of volumes are also published in English on Crunchyroll Manga as Sweetness and Lightning. The series placed eighth in the 2014 Kono Manga ga Sugoi! rankings for male readers.

Kouhei Inuzuka is a teacher who has been caring for his little daughter on his own since his wife's death. He's no good at cooking, so he and his daughter Tsumugi have been eating packaged meals from the convenience store. A series of events lead him one evening to a restaurant run by the mother of one of his students, Kotori. Her mother isn't there, but Kotori does her best to feed them both. It turns out Kotori is often alone since her parents are divorced and her mother is frequently not around. The three of them begin to meet and cook tasty food together. (Source: MangaHelpers)

Blew through the manga in the space of 1 day, I will definitely be anticipating this one for sure. One of the best SoL Parent-Child relationship/good-feels series I've ever read.

It's looks like a cute series and has a plot that I never seen before, I'll try to watch it when it come out. It seems enjoyable tho.

Oh yes! Need more anime that feature guardian(s) and child(ren)! If only some other similar type of manga I read would get the same treatment, if only.. Love so Life, Gakuen Babysitter, etc.

We might have another good Summer season and Spring is great, good news since Winter was terrible and dismal for the most part.

To manga readers: is there going to be romance with the teacher and the student?

Kuma said:
is it more focus on coocking? or sol? or drama? or romance? sound like love so life foi me thou. not read this one yet.

The main focus lies on the cooking and the everyday life of the teacher and his daughter.
There are very few minor romance indications here and there, but it's definitely not the main focus.
