posted on by Emma Hanashiro
Pony Canyon began streaming a preview video for the upcoming original video animation Yuruyuri Nachu Yachumi! (a deliberate misspelling of "natsu yasumi," or "summer vacation") on Saturday. The OVA will open in five theaters in Japan on November 29.
Akari: Akari! Yahoo! It's me, Akari Akaza. For this year's summer vacation, we went to a camp! Today, I'll give you a sneak peak at that!
Text: I'm hungry~ I want to eat meat~
Text: Meat!? I LOVE meat!
Text: I heard there was barbecued meat!
Text: We'll take some, too.
Text: OK! We should capture a cow, then!
Text: It's good weather, so let's make it a barbecue!
Text: It's obvious that the dessert will have to be rum raisin!
Akari: Huh!? What's up with these subtitles!?
Text: Aoi Mukai, your favorite food is carrots, right?
Text: I will return bell peppers to you immediately.
Akari: Anyway, it was our first time doing a camp just with Akari and the group, so I was a bit nervous, but we did cooking and ghost walks, so it was lots of fun!
Text: Oof... I think I ate too much.
Text: Don't forget Good Meat Day! [Ii Niku no Hi, a Japanese pun on 11-29 or November 29]
Akari: I'd be really happy if everyone would watch! Now then! Yuriyuri Nachu Yachumi! The pre-order tickets are selling very well!
Participating theaters are offering a limited number of advance tickets with two different, randomly distributed ticket holders illustrated by character designer Motohiro Taniguchi.
The cast remains the same from the earlier anime, but the staff has change. Hiroyuki Hata (Kamichu!, Recently, my sister is unusual.) replaces Masahiko Ohta as director. Michiko Yokote (Red Data Girl, Squid Girl) handles the scripts, and Motohiro Taniguchi ( To Love-Ru -Trouble- Darkness, Recently my sister is unusual. animation director) replaces character designer Chiaki Nakajima and serves as chief animation director. The project is being animated at TYO Animation (Tamayura - Hitotose) instead of Dogakobo.
The Yuruyuri anime adapts Namori's manga about four fun-loving schoolgirls who take over the former room of a tea ceremony club for their own "Gorakubu" (amusement club).
The first anime series premiered in Japan in July 2011, and Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired. The 12-episode sequel series Yuruyuri♪♪ aired in 2012, and Crunchyroll also streamed that series as it aired. JManga and ALC Publishing released part of the original manga digitally in English before JManga shut down last year. NISA has licensed and released both seasons in North America.
