What could be better for an employee other than to build long-lasting relationships in his workplace? However, a romantic relationship is bound to make things awkward, particularly when neither of the two has confessed it.
‘Story of a Small Senior in My Company’ talks about a romantic situation between an employee and his female senior. While the senior behaves in an ‘older-sister-like’ manner, the employee wonders if she is doing it out of duty or if there is more to it. Anyway, it recovers him and motivates him every day.
On Friday, the official website for the ‘Story of a Small Senior in My Company’ anime revealed a new trailer. The video introduces the opening song, more cast and staff members, and the release date of July 1.
In the trailer, the senior colleague Shiori Katase pats her subordinate, Takuma Shinozaki. Although Shinozaki feels embarrassed by her caring behavior, he likes her company. Shiori also seems to prefer being around him. Three new characters – Chihiro Akina, Chinatsu Hayakawa, and Yutaka Shinozaki are revealed.
