Karino Takatsu posts restaurant slice-of-life story to commemorate TV anime

Manga creator Karino Takatsu is launching a special web version of her Working!! four-panel manga to commemorate the upcoming television anime series. A new web manga installment will run every first and third Monday of the month. Takatsu's original manga runs in Square Enix's Shonen Gangan magazine, which also ships every first and third Monday of the month.

The story is set in a family restaurant named Wagnaria!! in the northern Japanese prefecture of Hokkaido. A high school freshman named Sōta works part-time among the restaurant's high-spirited, mysterious, yet cool staffers. Yoshimasa Hiraike (Kaleido Star, Sketchbook ~full color'S~, Solty Rei) is directing the anime version, and Shingo Adachi (Megaman Star Force, Rockman.EXE Beast+) is designing the characters and overseeing the animation at A-1 Pictures Inc. Jun Fukuyama and Kana Asumi will play the characters Sōta and Popura, respectively.
