Luck & Logic Streams 8th 'We Are Luck & Logic Club' Anime Short
posted on by Kyle Hallmark
The official YouTube channel for the Luck & Logic franchise began streaming the eighth episode of the "Watashi-tachi, Rakuroji-bu!" (We Are the Luck and Logic Club!) short anime series on Saturday. The one-minute anime series is airing before each full Luck & Logic TV anime episode.
The anime short features the three high school girls in the Luck and Logic Club playing at the trading card game store where their club adviser works. Ronri and Unne are hard at work practicing for an upcoming Luck and Logic festival. Endō-san explains that her shop hosts the event four times a year in order to spread the popularity of the game. Because the festival is a team event, Ado decides to participate with her friends. When Ronri asks if Endō-san will make "the usual" this time, she reveals that she will make her special "paradox juice," drawing an unpleasant reaction from Ronri and Unne.
The anime stars:
- Yuka Ozaki as Ado Sukinanoka
- Eriko Matsui as Ronri Fukai
- Rimi Nishimoto as Unne Sonosaki
- Marie Miyake as Endō-san
The first and second episodes of the short will be featured as a bonus extra on the first Blu-ray Disc volume release of the main Luck & Logic anime series, which ships on March 25. Each subsequent Blu-ray Disc volume will then feature two episodes of the short. The eighth short will ship with the fourth Blu-ray Disc volume on June 24.
The anime short features the same returning staff from the main anime series: director Takashi Naoya, character designer and concept designer Mari Shimazaki, original concept creator and series composition writer Yuuya Takahashi, character designer and chief animation director Katsuhiro Kumagai, and animation studio Doga Kobo.
The anime short also serves as an advertisement for Bushiroad's Luck & Logic trading card game, which Bushiroad shipped in Japan with two starter decks and one booster pack on January 28. Bushiroad plans to release the trading card game in English this summer.
The Luck and Logic project is a collaboration between Bushiroad, Bandai Visual, Doga Kobo Nitroplus, Lantis, and Yuhodo. The main television anime series premiered in Japan on January 9. Funimation is streaming the series in North America as it airs. Crunchyroll is streaming the series in Spain and Portugal, and Daisuki and Anime Lab are also streaming the series outside of North America.
