posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Stream begins on Crunchyroll on Saturday, on Daisuki 1 week after original broadcast

Aniplex of America announced on Thursday that it will stream the WWW.WAGNARIA!! (WWW.WORKING!!) anime. The anime will premiere on Crunchyroll on Saturday, October 1 at 12:00 p.m. EDT, and will also stream on the Daisuki service one week after the original broadcast. Aniplex of America posted an English-subtitled trailer for the series.

Web-ban Working!! is a four-panel web comic spinoff of Karino Takatsu's original Working!! manga series. It takes place at another Wagnaria family restaurant location. In the story, Daisuke Higashida gets a job at the restaurant because of family financial difficulties, but no one who works there is normal.

Yumi Kamakura (Wagnaria!!3) is directing the anime at A-1 Pictures. Mayuko Nakano is designing the characters and serving as chief animation director. Takao Yoshioka is handling series composition and Masaru Yokoyama is composing the music.

Cast members Haruka Tomatsu (as Hana Miyakoshi), Yōko Hikasa (as Sayuri Muranushi), and Sora Amamiya (as Shiho Kamakura) are performing the opening theme song "Eyecatch! Too much!," and cast members Yūichi Nakamura (as Daisuke Higashida), Kouki Uchiyama (as Masahiro Adachi), and Kensho Ono (as Yūta Shindō) are performing the ending theme song "Mujūryoku Fever" (Zero Gravity Fever).

Many of the anime cast members are returning from a drama CD that shipped with the third manga volume, although Nana Mizuki is replacing Risa Taneda as Kisaki Kondō. The cast includes:

Yūichi Nakamura as Daisuke Higashida, the serious main character. He got stuck with working a part-time job due to family circumstances.

Haruka Tomatsu as Hana Miyakoshi, a mysterious high schooler who is already a floor chief. Strong, but not so bright

Kouki Uchiyama as Masahiro Adachi, an honest and upright kitchen staffer. Easily confused.

Yōko Hikasa as Sayuri Muranushi, an art school student with few social graces but with a knack for her work. She can see what cannot be seen

Nana Mizuki as Kisaki Kondō, an aimless college student and Muranushi's childhood friend who doesn't work.

Sora Amamiya as Shiho Kamakura, a rather rich girl who feels a little, mostly, fairly warped mentality. She may have feelings for Shindō.

Kensho Ono as Yūta Shindō, a poor freelancer who is at the family restaurant during the day and at a host club at night.

  • Momo Asakura as Miri Yanagiba
  • Ari Ozawa as Rui Nagata
  • Hiro Shimono as Takuya Kōno
  • Yoshimasa Hosoya as Kōki Saiki
  • Kousuke Toriumi as Kenichirō Sakaki

Takatsu posted the web manga on her own official website and Square Enix is publishing the series into compiled volumes. The limited edition for the third, fourth, and fifth manga volumes are each bundling a drama CD. The fourth volume shipped on September 24, while the fifth volume will ship on December 24.

Takatsu serialized her Working!! manga in Shonen Gangan from 2005 to 2014, and it already inspired three television anime seasons. Crunchyroll streamed all three series as they aired in Japan, and NISA licensed and released the first two seasons in North America under the title Wagnaria!!. Aniplex of America released the third season.
