SHIMONETA's Youhei Suzuki directs series at J.C. Staff

The Twitter account for Houbunsha's Manga Time Kirara magazine revealed the staff and January premiere on Friday for the anime adaptation of Harikamo's Urara Meirocho four-panel manga. Houbunsha also revealed a key visual for the anime, drawn by Harikamo.

Youhei Suzuki (SHIMONETA: A Boring World Where the Concept of Dirty Jokes Doesn't Exist, The "Hentai" Prince and the Stony Cat.) is directing the anime at J.C. Staff. Deko Akao (Snow White with the Red Hair, Etotama, Noragami) is handling the series composition, and Mai Otsuka (Shakugan no Shana, Non Non Biyori) is designing the characters for animation.

The anime will air on TBS and BS-TBS.

The story is set in Meiro-chō, a town where all-female diviners (uranaishi) live and where girls from all over the country yearn to become the top diviner — "Urara." Today, a solitary girl named Chiya enters the town's gates. However, she has another purpose in coming here, besides becoming the Urara. Chiya's days as an apprentice diviner begin as she meets three friends — the earnest Kon; Koume, who is a fan of Western culture; and the shy Nono.

Harikamo is serializing the manga in Manga Time Kirara Miracle, and Houbunsha published the third volume in May.
