posted on 2010-04-27 06:18 EDT 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.
