Yuruyuri Manga Gets TV Anime
posted on by Egan Loo
The May issue of Ichijinsha's Comic Yuri Hime magazine is announcing on Thursday that a television anime adaptation of Namori's Yuruyuri manga has been green-lit. In this manga which ran in Ichijinsha's Comic Yuri Hime S magazine and now runs in Comic Yuri Hime, four fun-loving schoolgirls take over the former room of a tea ceremony club for their own "Gorakubu" (amusement club).
Masahiko Ohta is directing and Takashi Aoshima is supervising and writing the scripts; the two had previously worked together on Minami-ke. Character designs, visual art, and other details about the anime will be provided in the next issue of the magazine. Pony Canyon registered the domain name yuruyuri.com.
Last year, the wraparound cover band on the second volume of the manga did list a "television anime adaptation" — followed by fine print that said that it "would be nice if it happens." The fourth compiled book volume of the manga shipped on January.
Update: More background information added.
