Jahy-sama's anime and what's more this summer, amazing !
I was wondering which one of Konbu-sensei's manga would be first to get an anime, i am glad it's the funniest and my favorite one.

This looks good. It kinda has a The Devil is a Part-Timer vibe. I'm looking forward to reading the manga, also.

I think Jahy-sama is the most easily merchandisable of her current three series (you get twice the figure potential from Jahy alone, since there's both "big" and "small" modes).

I don't think there are yet enough (full-length) manga chapters of My Recently-Hired Maid is Suspicious to warrant a whole season while Sekai de Ichiban Oppai ga Suki/Breasts are My Favorite Things In the World might be a little too "ecchi" to get animated for television (although, yes, I know it's tamer than some other ecchi manga that got TV anime adaptations).

It has been picked up (by Square Enix) but has been delayed multiple times. Should be coming out around in July.

Yea, Square Enix really could have gotten several volumes released by now and captured on the anime popularity like Kodansha has with Nagatoro, but nope, nearly 2 years of delays and now the first episode will likely air before volume 1 comes out in English.

I find the really small amount of followers it has in Twitter kinda odd, especially by the Japanese (I thought this was popular over there)... Usually if a popular manga gets an anime, the amount of people that follows its Twitter account is respectively high, but that doesn’t seems to be the case here.... Maybe this manga isn’t as popular as I thought.

The Jahy-sama anime Twitter account has only been up for a day. I wouldn't be too surprised if some Jahy-sama manga fans still haven't heard the news yet even if they already follow Wakame Konbu's Twitter. The anime account will probably get more followers when readers who missed the news elsewhere see the anime announcement in the next chapter of the Jahy-sama manga in Gangan JOKER.
