posted on 2011-09-02 06:00 EDT
The official Japanese website for the Working!! anime began streaming the first 36-second "character trailer" for the second television series, Working'!!, on Friday. The trailer highlights the returning characters Takanashi and Popura. The site also updated the character profiles for Haruna Otoo and Kirio Yamada, as well as the main staff list.
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.
After preview showings that begin on Saturday, the Working'!! television series will formally launch in Japan on October 1.
