The official website for the television anime adaptation of Karino Takatsu's Working!! four-panel manga has posted a 107-second promotional video on Tuesday. The video was original shown at last week's Comic Market convention in Tokyo. On December 25, the website posted a 32-second "character trailer" that focuses on the main character, a high school freshman named Sōta Takanashi.
The story is set in a family restaurant named Wagnaria in the northern Japanese prefecture of Hokkaido. Sōta works part-time among the restaurant's high-spirited, mysterious, yet cool staffers.
Takatsu's original manga runs in Square Enix's Young Gangan magazine, and six compiled book volumes have been published. Yoshimasa Hiraike (Kaleido Star, Sketchbook ~full color'S~, Solty Rei) is directing the anime version, and Shingo Adachi (Megaman Star Force, Rockman.EXE Beast+) is designing the characters and overseeing the animation at A-1 Pictures Inc. Jun Fukuyama and Kana Asumi will play the characters Sōta and Popura, respectively. The television anime will premiere this April.
