A new anime adaptation of Kunihiko Tanaka's Ichigeki Sacchu!! HoiHoi-san manga was announced as green-lit at the Dengeki Game Festival 2012 event on Sunday. The story revolves around a cute robotic bug exterminator in the future.
Tanaka serialized the manga in ASCII Media Works' Monthly Comic Dengeki Daioh magazine, and ASCII Media Works compiled the series into one book volume. The manga already inspired a short anime special, with Rie Kugimiya in the title role and Rie Tanaka as Combat-san, that was bundled with that book volume in 2004. There is also a sequel manga called Ichigeki Sacchū!! HoiHoi-san Legacy that ran in Dengeki Black Maoh and Dengeki Daioh magazines.
Update: More background information added.
