The broadcaster TV Tokyo began streaming a 30-second television commercial for the the Saki Achiga-hen episode of side-A television anime series on Wednesday. The first 15 seconds of the below video shows a previously-aired Saki Achiga-hen episode of side-A television commercial.
The anime adapts Aguri Igarashi's Saki Achiga-hen episode of side-A manga, which is a spinoff of Ritz Kobayashi's original Saki high school mahjong manga. The story follows Shizuno Takakamo (Aoi Yūki) and the other mahjong players at the all-girls school Achiga.
The first Saki anime's Manabu Ono is once again directing at Studio Gokumi, which is composed of former staffers from Gonzo's fifth studio. Gonzo's fifth studio produced the first 14 episodes of the first Saki television anime in 2009, but Picture Magic took over for the rest of that earlier anime after Gonzo had to restructure.
Other returning staffers include assistant director Kenji Seto, series script editor and screenwriter Tatsuhiko Urahata, and character designer and chief animation director Masakatsu Sasaki. Bandai Visual's Lantis label is once again producing the music. The anime will premiere in Japan on April 8, and Crunchyroll will stream the series outside of Japan as it airs starting this Sunday.
