Working'!! TV Sequel's 2nd Character Trailer Streamed
posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The official Japanese website for the Working!! anime began streaming the second 37-second "character trailer" for the second television series, Working'!!, on Friday. The trailer highlights the returning characters Mahiru Inami and Aoi Yamada. The site also began streaming a fast-motion, 21-second video of character designer and chief animation director Shingo Adachi drawing Mahiru.
Participating stores nationwide will screen the series' first episode on September 17, two weeks after the first on-air preview, which began on Saturday.
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!) is helming the new series rather than first season director Yoshimasa Hiraike, and Takao Yoshioka has taken over Hiraike's series script supervisor role. Music composer monaca and character designer/chief animation director Shingo Adachi both remain on board at A-1 Pictures Inc. The main cast is returning with new cast members Yūichi Nakamura and Haruka Tomatsu.
The Working'!! television series will formally launch in Japan on October 1.
