Osamake: Romcom Where The Childhood Friend Won't Lose is a new romantic comedy anime series animated by Doga Kobo which would be having its debut with Season 1 bringing us to the question of how many episodes will there be.
Osamake is based on the Japanese light novel series of Shūichi Nimaru with the illustrations of Ui Shigure published in ASCII Media Works in their Dengeki Bunko imprint. It also has a seinen manga series adaptation with the art of Ryō Itō which is published in Media Factory's seinen manga magazine Monthly Comic Alive.
Osamake has its story going around Sueharu Maru, a no-girlfriend-since-birth high school student who has a crush on Shirokusa, an idol and award-winning author in the same high school Sueharu attends. Sueharu feels like he has a chance on Shirokusa as she treats him differently from other guys in school, however, there’s an obstacle, Shirokusa has a boyfriend already.
Sueharu has a next-door neighbor, Kuroha Shida, who’s a friendly, outgoing, and cute onee-san type of girl and she is really brave to confront Sueharu that she likes him. With Sueharu only having eyes for Shirokusa, he rejected Kuroha, but she’s not a quitter, she knew Shirokusa has a boyfriend and she offers Sueharu a vengeance plot against the couple.
