Series of short gags follow middle school girl nicknamed after Cyclops
The website for Shueisha's Weekly Young Jump magazine began streaming the first episode of the Cyclops Shōjo Saipū web anime on Monday. The episode introduces "Saipū," a middle school girl nicknamed after the one-eyed Cyclops giants in Greek myths due to her ungainly height and hairstyle. The episode plays out in a series of short gags where Saipū (Mai Nakahara) expresses her adoration for her big brother.
The anime is an adaptation of Yasu Tora's four-panel comedy manga of the same name. Tora launched the manga series in 2011 (after a string of earlier one-shot chapters), and Shueisha will publish the second book volume next Tuesday.
