Lucky Star Spinoff Miyakawa-ke no Kūfuku's Staff, Singers Partly Revealed

posted on by Egan Loo
Yamakan directs at Ordet/Encourage Films; "Konata, Kagami, Hinata, Hikage" sing themes

The official website for the anime adaptation of Kagami Yoshimizu's Lucky Star spinoff manga Miyakawa-ke no Kūfuku (The Miyakawa Family's Hunger) announced the staff and theme song performers on Friday.

Yutaka Yamamoto or "Yamakan" (Kannagi: Crazy Shrine Maidens, episodes of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya and Lucky Star) is directing the anime at his studio Ordet and Encourage Films. Takeshi Yasuda and Hiroaki Takeuchi planned and developed the project in collaboration with Touyou Ikeda. Touko Machida (Lucky Star, The IDOLM@STER) is overseeing the series scripts, and Mamoru Ikeya designed the characters.

Ken'ichi Maeyamada (songs in Baka and Test - Summon the Beasts , Nichijou - My Ordinary Life, Bodacious Space Pirates) is composing the music. While the cast has not been announced, the opening theme song "Kachigumi" is credited to the characters Konata Izumi and Kagami Hiiragi. Similarly, the ending theme song "Makegumi" is credited to Hinata and Hikage Miyakawa.

The original manga is based on the Lucky Star Moe Drill game series. It centers around big sister Hinata Miyakawa and little sister Hikage Miyakawa's impoverished daily life at home (due to Hinata's wasteful habits) and Hikage's life at elementary school.

The anime will stream on the Ustream service this spring. The anime's website previews the designs and the two sisters' profiles. It also presented the wooden ema prayer plaque, hung in offering at Washinomiya Shrine, that revealed the anime on New Year's Eve last year. The ema already listed Yamamoto next to Yoshimizu's sketch.
