News Haganai Gets New Original Video Anime on September 26
posted on 2012-05-06 06:57 EDT
The "Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai (Haganai) Premium Event" announced on Sunday that an original video anime called Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai Add On Disc was green-lit for release on September 26. The video anime release will include the unaired 13th episode.
Yomi Hirasaka and Buriki's original light novels revolve around Kodaka (Ryohei Kimura) — a half-Japanese/half-British transfer student whose delinquent-like blonde hair and fierce eyes scare people — and a seemingly perpetually sullen girl named Yozora (Marina Inoue). The two decide to form Rinjinbu, a club for misfits with hardly any friends.
The light novels already inspired a 2011 television anime series that Funimation licensed and streamed in North America. The new original video anime is different from the original anime DVD that was bundled with the seventh light novel volume last September.
Update: More background information added.
