The official Japanese website for the Working!! anime franchise began streaming a 102-second promotional video for the second television anime series, Working'!!, on Monday. The video was first shown at the recently concluded Comic Market 80 event in Tokyo, and it features the new opening theme song "Coolish Walk" by voice cast members Kana Asumi, Eri Kitamura and Saki Fujita.
The anime is based on Karino Takatsu's manga of the same name, which revolves around a high school freshman named Sota Takanashi who works part-time among a restaurant's high-spirited, eccentric, yet cool staffers. The first season aired during the spring 2010 anime season. NIS America, the American subsidiary of the Nippon Ichi Software videogame company, licensed the series last November and released it under the name Wagnaria!! earlier this year.
Atsushi Ootsuki (Ladies versus Butlers!) will helm the new series rather than first season director Yoshimasa Hiraike, and Takao Yoshioka will take over Hiraike's series script supervisor role. Music composer Monaca and character designer/chief animation director Shingo Adachi will both remain on board at A-1 Pictures Inc. The main cast is returning with new cast members Yuuichi Nakamura and Haruka Tomatsu.
The Working'!! television series will premiere in Japan this October.
