News Anime on Demand to Stream Sasamisan@Ganbaranai
Anime on Demand has announced that it will be streaming the series Sasami-san@Ganbaranai. This comedy follows a hikikomori (shut-in) named Sasami Tsukuyomi (voiced by Kana Asumi) who is unmotivated about living, even changing clothes or eating. Her brother Kamiomi (Houchu Ohtsuka) takes care of her, though she despises his slave-like nature. Sasami spends her days viewing the outside world via a "Brother Surveillance Tool" on her computer. In the outside world, the three beautiful Yagami sisters (played by Chiwa Saito, Kana Hanazawa, and Ai Nonaka) and Sasami's brother are in the middle of relationships worthy of a romcom.
Akiyuki Shinbo teamed up again with his Madoka Magica and Bakemonogatari studio SHAFT to make the television anime of Akira's Sasami-san@Ganbaranai light novel series. Katsuhiko Takayama (And Yet the Town Moves, Love, Election & Chocolate) was in charge of the scripts, and Hiroki Harada (Romeo × Juliet, Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal) designed the characters. The first commercial for the series is below.
