Character designs also posted for July 4 anime adaptation of Karino Takatsu's manga

The official website for A-1 Pictures' television anime adaptation of Karino Takatsu's (Working!!) Servant × Service four-panel manga began streaming the first promotional video for the series on Friday.

In addition, the official website updated the profiles for the anime's characters:

Ai Kayano (Guilty Crown) plays Lucy Yamagami, a serious woman who loves books more than anything. She appears to hold a complex of some kind.

Tatsuhisa Suzuki (Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun) plays Yutaka Hasebe, a gaudy young man who is always easy-going. It seems that no one knows his true intentions.

Mai Nakahara (Clannad) plays Saya Miyoshi, a very shy and quiet girl. She seems to be liked by the elderly.

Aki Toyosaki (K-ON!) plays Megumi Chihaya, a cosplay-loving superior in the workplace. The anime she is currently obsessed with is “Magical Flowers”.

Takahiro Sakurai (.hack//Roots) plays Taishi Ichimiya, the superior to Yamagami and her friends at work. He is kind, but a little weak and unreliable.

Rumi Ookubo (Pretty Rhythm Dear My Future) plays Tōko Ichimiya, the younger sister of Taishi in high school. In addition to being a maniac for health and wealthfare, she also has a bit of a temper.

Mikako Takahashi (Elemental Gelade) will also join the cast as Tanaka-san.

Yasutaka Yamamoto (Valkyria Chronicles, Squid Girl Season 2, Problem children are coming from another world, aren't they?) is directing the series off of scripts by Taketo Shimoyama (Bleach, Gintama, Gintama'). Terumi Nishii (Kimi no Iru Machi, Penguindrum) is adapting Takatsu's character designs for animation, Half HP Studio is handling the sound production, and Akiko Fujita (Blade of the Immortal, Happy Kappy, Chibi Devi!) is serving as sound director. monaca (Working!!) is composing the music.

The slice-of-life comedy manga centers on the employees of a government ward office in a city in Hokkaido. The story follows the daily lives of the health and welfare division members.

Takatsu launched the manga in Square Enix's Big Gangan magazine in 2009, and the company published the manga's second compiled volume last November. The limited-edition version of the manga's second volume bundled a drama CD, and the anime will feature the same main cast as that drama CD.

The anime will premiere on Japanese television on July 4.
