posted on 2011-08-19 10:30 EDT by Andrew Osmond
The official Japanese website for the Working!! anime began streaming a 15-second commercial for the early preview of the second television series, Working'!!, on Friday. Tokyo MX, Tochigi TV, Gunma TV, and other television stations will show the first episode of the new series one month early, starting on September 3.
The anime is based on Karino Takatsu's manga of the same name, which revolves around a high school freshman named Sota Takanashi who works part-time among a restaurant's high-spirited, eccentric, yet cool staffers. The first season aired during the spring 2010 anime season. NIS America, the American subsidiary of the Nippon Ichi Software videogame company, licensed the series last November and released it under the name Wagnaria!! earlier this year.
Atsushi Ootsuki (Ladies versus Butlers!) will helm the new series rather than first season director Yoshimasa Hiraike, and Takao Yoshioka will take over Hiraike's series script supervisor role. Music composer Monaca and character designer/chief animation director Shingo Adachi will both remain on board at A-1 Pictures Inc. The main cast is returning with new cast members Yuuichi Nakamura and Haruka Tomatsu.
After the preview showing, the Working'!! television series will formally launch in Japan this October.
