The March issue of Ichijinsha's Manga 4-Koma Palette magazine is announcing on Wednesday that a TV anime adaptation of Kōtarō Kosugi's Futsū no Joshikōsei ga Locodol Yattemita (Normal High School Girls Tried Being Local Idols) 4-panel comedy manga has been green-lit. The anime will air on the TBS and BS-TBS channels.
In the story, high school girl Nanako became her town's local idol at the request of her uncle. She and her upperclassman Yukari, a girl who seems perfect but ends up being airheaded, both become idols of their provincial area. They get interviewed (by the town's shopping center), go on television (low-budget cable), and hold concerts (on the roof of the department store). The girls' salaries come from the town's taxes.
Kosugi began serializing the manga in the magazine in 2011. Ichijinsha is releasing the second compiled volume on Wednesday.
