Yozakura Quartet Manga Gets New TV Anime
posted on by Egan Loo
Yozakura Quartet manga creator Suzuhito Yasuda and the cast of the Yozakura Quartet anime announced in a Niconico live program on Thursday that a new television anime adaptation has been green-lit. Yasuda's manga follows four teenagers:
Hime is a superheroine. Ao can read minds. Kotoha can conjure up anything with the right word. And Akina... Well, he's just a regular guy, surrounded by three supergirls! Together, they protect the town of Sakurashin. But that's not easy, as the town faces demon dogs and supernatural threats!
Production on a new, separate Yozakura Quartet ~Tsuki ni Naku~ original anime DVD series was also announced last week. "Tsuki ni Naku" will ship on bonus DVDs bundled with the limited-edition volumes of the manga, similar to how the "Hoshi no Umi" anime project shipped with the manga's 9th, 10th, and 11th volumes. The first Tsuki ni Naku DVD will ship on September 9.
Section23 Films shipped the complete DVD collection for the first Yozakura Quartet television anime series in North America in 2010, and Del Rey Manga shipped the fifth manga volume in 2009.

Update: Ryo-timo (Yozakura Quartet ~Hoshi no Umi~) is directing the new television anime. The new television anime is not a sequel to the first television anime, but a retelling of the story from the beginning. It will have original content combined with content from the manga. The cast and broadcast date has not been revealed yet. Source: Comic Natalie
