Sentai Filmworks Adds Locodol Anime
posted on by Karen Ressler
The 12-episode television anime series premiered in July 2014, and Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired. An OVA episode was bundled with the first Blu-ray Disc and DVD volume in Japan in September, and Crunchyroll streamed the OVA in December.
In the original manga's 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.
