Ebiten High School Otaku Comedy Anime's 1st Ad Posted
posted on by Egan Loo
Production company Kadokawa began airing the first commercial for its Ebiten: Kōritsu Ebisugawa Kōkō Tenmon-Bu net anime series last week, and it began streaming the ad (in 30-second and 15-second lengths) on Monday.
The story centers around Itsuki Noya (played by Mariya Ise), a new student who wishes to join the school's astronomy club (tenmon-bu). However, Itsuki actually entered the similarly named Tenmon-bu — a club for fujoshi (female otaku) interests.
SCA-ji and Kira Inugami launched the manga in Kadokawa's Comp Ace magazine in 2008, and Kadokawa published the the third compiled book volume in January. Inugami's other works include illustrations in the Seitokai no Ichizon (Student Council's Discretion) light novels and the mascot character for the card game division of the character goods maker Broccoli.
The anime will premiere via a live streami on niconico (formerly Nico Nico Douga) on July 14. An original anime Blu-ray Disc will also be bundled with the fourth manga volume in December.
