Yugami-kun ni wa Tomodachi ga Inai Manga's 2nd Anime Ad Posted

Madoka Yonezawa, Kōki Uchiyama return for 2nd commercial animated by A-Pictures

Shogakukan's Web Sunday site began streaming the second commercial for Jun Sakura's Yugami-kun ni wa Tomodachi ga Inai (He Does Not Have Any Friends) manga on Thursday.

Chihiro: Oh darn...
Boy: Yugami...
Yūji: I have no reason to listen to your troubles.
Boy: That's just cruel. He could have just listened to me and helped me out...
Chihiro: I thought he would let me in his umbrella...
Yūji: Here.
Chihiro: Yugami... Thank you!
Yūji: 500 yen (about US$5).
Chihiro: Yugami is not a bad person... This is just how he is.
Yūji: Yugami-kun ni wa Tomodachi ga Inai. The manga is currently on sale.

The story of the comedy manga revolves around Yūji Yugami and Chihiro Watanuki, who sit next to each other in class. Unfortunately for Chihiro, the transfer student Yūji is weird... extremely weird. Even though he's the ace of the baseball club, he hasn't adapted to the club at all. He also stands apart from the rest of the class, but seems completely satisfied with being alone.

The 30-second commercial once again features Madoka Yonezawa (White Album 2, Pretty Rhythm Aurora Dream) as Chihiro Watanuki and Kōki Uchiyama (Soul Eater, Shiki) as Yūji Yugami. A-1 Pictures (The IDOLM@STER, Sword Art Online) produced the animation for the commercial once more.

Sakura launched the manga in Shogakukan's Shōnen Sunday S magazine in the magazine's July 2012 issue, and the manga switched over to Weekly Shonen Sunday as of the 48th issue. Sakura is publishing the manga once a month in Weekly Shonen Sunday. Shogagukan is shipping the fifth compiled book volume on Thursday.
