A wooden ema prayer plaque hung in offering at Washinomiya Shrine, the Tokyo area's oldest shrine and a real-life backdrop for the Lucky Star anime series, has announced that an anime adaptation of Kagami Yoshimizu's Lucky Star spinoff manga Miyakawa-ke no Kūfuku (The Miyakawa Family's Hunger) manga is in the works. The manga is based on the Lucky Star Moe Drill game series and centers around big sister Hinata Miyakawa and little sister Hikage Miyakawa's impoverished daily life at home (due to Hinata's wasteful habits) and Hikage's life at elementary school.
Yoshimizu launched the manga in Kadokawa Shoten's Comp H's magazine in 2008, and it moved to the publisher's Monthly Comp Ace magazine and occasionally Comptiq magazine after Comp H's ended. Kadokawa published the first compiled book volume in June.
Update: The ema lists director Yutaka Yamamoto (Kannagi: Crazy Shrine Maidens, episodes of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya and Lucky Star), but does not state what role, if any, he will have.
