The official YouTube channel for the Luck & Logic franchise began streaming the ninth 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 Ado from the Luck and Logic Club wandering a desert on a journey to construct a deck for the upcoming Luck and Logic festival. She finds an oasis of cards in the desert, and Ronri and Unne appear by her side to offer her wisdom. Suddenly, a singing, hooded figure approaches. The figure turns out to be their club advisor Endō-san, who offers Ado a card depicting the Luck & Logic character Orga Brakechild that she claims will be useful in the future.
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 ninth short will ship with the fifth Blu-ray Disc volume on July 22.
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 will release a second booster pack in Japan on March 25. Additionally, Bushiroad will launch the English edition of the trading card game on June 24.
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.
