The official YouTube channel for Kadokawa began streaming a trailer for the upcoming television broadcast of its Ebiten: Kōritsu Ebisugawa Kōkō Tenmon-Bu anime series. While the title was originally distributed via live streaming on the niconico (formerly Nico Nico Douga) video service, the television broadcast for the series will feature longer episodes.
The title's 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.
Ebiten: Kōritsu Ebisugawa Kōkō Tenmon-Bu will begin airing on Japanese television on October 3.
