Update 2017-01-12: More details have been unveiled, click here to view the latest information.

With the release of the first extensive trailer for the anime Koi wa Ameagari no You ni (Love is Like after the Rain) released today, we get to listen to a short snippet of one of the songs from Aimer’s upcoming double A-side single! The first batch of information disclosed that the name of single is divided into two parts, “Ref:rain / title to be announced”, where Ref:rain (read: Refrain) being the only announced song so far.

In the trailer, we get to enjoy beautiful visuals from the anime Koi wa Ameagari no You ni—thanks to Wit Studio—while at the same time having our first quick listen to the upcoming song. Furthermore, Ref:rain has also been decided to join the anime as its ending theme song.

Expect to get your hands on this release early next year, on February 21—a month after the anime starts airing.

Akira Tachibana is a soft-spoken high school student who used to be a part of the track and field club but, due to an injury, she is no longer able to run as fast as she once could. Working part-time at a family restaurant as a recourse, she finds herself inexplicably falling love with her manager, a divorced 45-year-old man with a young son.

Despite the age gap, Akira wholeheartedly embraces his mannerisms and kind nature, which is seen as spinelessness by the other employees, and little by little, the two begin to understand each other. Although unable to explain why exactly she is attracted to him, Akira believes that a concrete reason is not needed to truly love someone. On a rainy day, she decides to finally tell her manager about how she feels…but just how will he react?
