The official website for the television anime adaptation of Karino Takatsu's Working!! four-panel manga has posted a 32-second Popura "character trailer" on Friday. The video focuses on Popura Taneshima, the 17-year-old high school girl who works at a restaurant. The previous Comic Market promotional video and Takanashi character trailer are still available from the same page.
The story is set in a family restaurant named Wagnaria in the northern Japanese prefecture of Hokkaido. A high school freshman named Sōta Takanashi works part-time among the restaurant's high-spirited, mysterious, yet cool staffers.
Takatsu's original manga runs in Square Enix's Young Gangan magazine, and six compiled book volumes have been published. 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. The television anime will premiere this April.
