Soredemo Machi wa Mawatteiru Maid Manga Gets TV Anime (Updated)
posted on by Egan Loo
The June issue of Shonen Gahosha Co.'s Young King Ours magazine is announcing on Friday that a television anime adaptation of Masakazu Ishiguro's Soredemo Machi wa Mawatteiru comedy manga has been green-lit. The anime will run on the TBS station in Japan.
The comedy story centers around Seaside, a slightly odd maid tea shop (kissa) in an otherwise ordinary shopping district of a mundane neighborhood in Tokyo. (Despite the addition of maids, Seaside is a traditional kissa, instead of one of the maid cafés made popular elsewhere.) Hotori Arashiyama works at Seaside and daydreams about being a high school girl detective. She, the other workers, and Seaside's few customers have various slice-of-life adventures.
The manga has been running in Young King Ours since 2005, and the seventh compiled book volume is shipping this month.
Update: More background and story information added.
Update 2: Pony Canyon has launched a teaser website.
