SHAFT's Sasami-san@Ganbaranai Anime's 3rd Promo Streamed

Madoka Magica/Bakemonogatari's Shinbo directs romantic comedy premiering on Thursday

The TBS station's official website for the Sasami-san@Ganbaranai television anime series began streaming the third promotional video on Wednesday. The video features the opening theme song "Alteration" by ZAQ.

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 based on Hidari's original novel illustrations.

The series will premiere on the TBS and BS-TBS channels in Japan on Thursday. Sentai Filmworks announced that it licensed this anime for North America, and The Anime Network then confirmed that it will stream the series on Fridays starting on January 18 at 11:30 a.m. EST.
