Production company Kadokawa began streaming a commercial for the original anime Blu-ray Disc bundled with the Ebiten: Kōritsu Ebisugawa Kōkō Tenmon-Bu manga on Saturday. The limited-edition boxed set of SCA-ji and Kira Inugami's fourth manga volume will feature an exclusive 25-minute anime episode when it ships in December.
The manga and anime center around Itsuki Noya (played by Mariya Ise), a feminine-looking boy who wishes to join his school's astronomy club (tenmon-bu). However, Itsuki actually entered the similarly named Tenmon-bu — a club for female otaku interests.
SCA-ji and Inugami launched the manga in Kadokawa's Comp Ace magazine in 2008. The net anime version of Ebiten premiered via a live stream on niconico (formerly Nico Nico Douga) on July 14.
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.
