Yuyushiki Anime Gets New Special Episode

posted on by Egan Loo
New episode based on Komata Mikami's manga announced at AnimeJapan on Saturday

Saturday's "Hello!! KINMOZA & Yuyushiki Joint Class Reunion" event at AnimeJapan 2016 announced that production on a new special anime episode based on Komata Mikami's four-panel manga Yuyushiki has been green-lit. The anime's official website and Twitter account will announce more details.

The story follows the school life of three girls in the data processing club: Yuzuko, Yukari, and Yui.

The manga already inspired a television anime in 2013. The main cast of the television anime included Minami Tsuda (Pretty Rhythm Dear My Future's Karin, Fractale's Phryne) as Yui, Risa Taneda (Oreshura's Kaoru yuui, Say, "I Love You".'s Asami Oikawa) as Yukari, and Rumi Ookubo (Pretty Rhythm Dear My Future's Mia, Yuruyuri's Chinatsu) as Yuzuko.

Kaori (episode director on Code:Breaker, .hack//Quantum) directed the series at Kinema Citrus. Natsuko Takahashi (Moyashimon, Tokyo Magnitude 8.0) supervised the scripts and Hisayuki Tabata (main animator on Accel World, animation director on Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion) designed the characters.

Crunchyroll streamed the television anime into several countries as it aired in Japan, and Sentai Filmworks released the anime on home video in North America.
