Sasami-san@Ganbaranai Romantic Comedy Light Novels Get Anime

posted on by Egan Loo
Story of shut-in girl & her brother's not-so-ordinary lives from Kyōran Kazoku Nikki creator Akira

The December Gahō flyer insert from Shogakukan's Gagaga Bunko imprint is announcing that an anime adaptation of Akira's Sasami-san@Ganbaranai light novel series has been green-lit. More details will be provided in future Gahō inserts.

The story follows a hikikomori (shut-in) named Sasami who is unmotivated about even changing clothes or eating. Her brother takes care of her, even though she despises his slave-like nature. Sasami spends her days viewing the outside world via a "Brother Surveillance Tool" on her computer. In the outside world, the three beautiful Yagami sisters and Sasami's brother are in the middle of relationships worthy of a romantic comedy.

After his earlier Kyōran Kazoku Nikki novels were adapted into anime in 2008, Akira launched the Sasami-san@Ganbaranai light novel series in 2009. The sixth volume shipped in August.
