The Japanese website for the KIDS STATION satellite television channel is streaming a trailer for the Gag Manga Biyori 3 comedy anime series. (In the linked page, select the center red button that has "PV" in it.) All three anime series are based on Kousuke Masuda's Gag Manga Biyori manga, which is known for its bizarre plot setups and non-sequitur humor. Akitaro Daichi (Kodocha, Fruits Basket, Animation Runner Kuromi), a director also known for bizarre plot setups and non-sequitur humor, will return for the third installment.
The original manga began serializing in Shueisha's Monthly Shonen Jump magazine in 2000. A special anime short was made for the Jump Festa 2002 event, before the first television anime series aired in 2005. After Monthly Shonen Jump ceased publication earlier this year, the Jump Square magazine restarted the manga in its launch issue last month.
