SHAFT's Sasami-san@Ganbaranai Anime's Gagaga Ad Aired

Madoka Magica/Bakemonogatari's Shinbo directs January romantic comedy

A new commercial for the Sasami-san@Ganbaranai television anime series began airing in Japan. The ad highlights Akira's original light novels that are published by Shogakukan's Gagaga Bunko imprint.

The story follows a hikikomori (shut-in) named Sasami Tsukuyomi (voiced by Kana Asumi) who is unmotivated about even changing clothes or eating. Her brother Kamiomi (Houchu Ohtsuka) takes care of her, even though she despises his slave-like nature. Sasami spends her days viewing the outside world via a "Brother Surveillance Tool" on her computer. In the outside world, the three beautiful Yagami sisters (played by Chiwa Saito, Kana Hanazawa, and Ai Nonaka) and Sasami's brother are in the middle of relationships worthy of a romantic comedy.

Akiyuki Shinbo is teaming up again with his Madoka Magica and Bakemonogatari studio SHAFT to make the television anime. Katsuhiko Takayama (And Yet the Town Moves, Love, Election & Chocolate) is in charge of the scripts, and Hiroki Harada (Romeo × Juliet, Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal) is designing the characters.

The series will premiere on the TBS and BS-TBS channels in Japan on January 10.
