3rd season of series about mysterious mascot character premieres in Japan on Friday

Media distribution site Crunchyroll announced on Friday that it will stream Wooser's Hand-to-Mouth Life: Phantasmagoric Arc (Wooser no Sono Higurashi Mugen-hen), the third anime adaptation of Yoshiki Usa and Tomoko Fujinoki's Wooser no Sono Higurashi (Wooser's Hand-to-Mouth Life) manga.

The site will stream the series worldwide outside of Japan. Crunchyroll will announce the date and time that it will post the first episode at a later date, but new episodes will stream on Fridays at 11:50 a.m. EDT.

Wooser no Sono Higurashi: MUGEN-hen is premiering on Friday on the Tokyo MX and BS11 channels in the newly created "Ultra Super Anime Time" timeslot. The show will be one of three short anime to run in the timeslot from Ultra Super Pictures (SANZIGEN Animation Studio, Ordet, Trigger, LIDEN FILMS). Crunchyroll's Twitter account posted in March that Crunchyroll would stream the third series, but the Tweet was removed shortly after.

The staff includes:

Each of the writers will write one episode each.

Yun*chi (Log Horizon) will perform the show's theme song "Lucky Girl*." Taku Takahashi of the musical unit m-flo is producing the song, and Yuki Kawamura is writing the lyrics.

Tomoko Fujinoki and supercell member Yoshiki Usa's Wooser no Sono Higurashi original 3D shorts center around Wooser, a mysterious mascot character who lives on the Internet and whose charming appearance belies a corrupt heart that craves money, meat, and gals.

The first anime season of Wooser's Hand-to-Mouth Life premiered in 2012 in Japan. The second season premiered last year, and Crunchyroll streamed both seasons.
