Director, writer, cast all return from 2013 TV anime

The January 2017 issue of Gakken's Megami Magazine revealed the returning cast, returning staff, and February 22 release date for the new special original video anime (OVA) episode based on Komata Mikami's four-panel manga Yuyushiki on Wednesday.

Kaori (episode director on Code:Breaker, .hack//Quantum) returns to direct the anime at Kinema Citrus. Natsuko Takahashi (Moyashimon, Tokyo Magnitude 8.0) similarly returns for series composition. The anime will get a DVD release on February 22.

The returning cast includes:

This is voice actress Risa Taneda first announced role since she announced she would go on hiatus from voice acting last August to focus on treatment for an unspecified illness.

The manga already inspired a television anime with the same cast and main staff in 2013. 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.

Mikami launched the manga in Houbunsha's Manga Time Kirara magazine in 2008, and the eighth compiled book volume shipped on June 27.
