posted on 2013-03-12 01:00 EDT
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.
