posted on by Karen Ressler
This year's May issue of Ichijinsha's Comic Yuri Hime will announce on Wednesday that the third Yuruyuri season will be titled Yuruyuri San Hai!. The main staff, while different from the first two seasons, will return from the Yuruyuri Nachu Yachumi! original video anime (OVA).
Hiroyuki Hata (Recently, my sister is unusual., Kamichu!) will direct the series at TYO Animations (Samurai Warriors, Tamayura - Hitotose). Motohiro Taniguchi (Recently, my sister is unusual.) is designing the characters and serving as chief animation director. Makoto Fukami (Chotto Kawaii Iron Maiden, Psycho-Pass) will join the staff and work with Hata on the scenario.
The main cast will also return.
The Yuruyuri anime adapts Namori's manga about four fun-loving schoolgirls who take over the former room of a tea ceremony club for their own "Goraku-bu" (amusement club).
The first anime series premiered in Japan in July 2011, and Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired. The 12-episode sequel series Yuruyuri♪♪ premiered in July 2012, and Crunchyroll also streamed that series as it aired. The Yuruyuri Nachu Yachumi! original video anime project shipped in February, after running in theaters last November.
