HoiHoi-san Legacy Anime's 1st Special Trailer Posted

posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
2nd HoiHoi-san anime of cute robotic bug exterminator in the future

Dengeki Maoh's Project HoiHoi-san website is streaming a promotional video for the new Ichigeki Sacchū!! HoiHoi-san Legacy anime.

The story revolves around a cute robotic bug exterminator in the future. Itsuro Kawasaki (Listen to Me, Girls. I Am Your Father!, Shining Hearts: Shiawase no Pan-) is directing the series at Bridge (Mitsudomoe). Mariko Fujita (Rosario + Vampire, Kämpfer) is designing the characters, and Hiroshi Yamaguchi (Sgt. Frog, Rosario + Vampire) is handling the scripts. Tomoki Kikuya (Hidamari Sketch, Squid Girl) is scoring the music.

The anime will be bundled with the first volume of Kunihiko Tanaka's Ichigeki Sacchū!! HoiHoi-san Legacy manga on March 28, 2013. This manga ran in Dengeki Black Maoh and Dengeki Daioh magazines.

Tanaka serialized the original Ichigeki Sacchū!! HoiHoi-san manga in ASCII Media Works' Monthly Comic Dengeki Daioh magazine, and ASCII Media Works compiled the series into one book volume. This first manga series already inspired a short anime special, with Rie Kugimiya in the title role and Rie Tanaka as Combat-san, that was bundled with that book volume in 2004. Infinity Studios published that volume without the anime in North America.
