Original series of shorts featuring designs by Kantoku premieres in January

The official website for the original anime series of shorts One Room announced on Thursday that M.A.O is playing Yui Hanasaka, one of the anime's three heroines. Yui is a 17-year-old girl from Hokkaido who goes to Tokyo in order to take her college entrance exams. She lives with her older sister while in Tokyo, and she is a neat and earnest person who does everything with the utmost effort.

The anime will premiere in Japan in January.

Kantoku (The "Hentai" Prince and the Stony Cat, Garakowa -Restore the World- original character designer) is designing the original characters for One Room, and Yasuhiro Okuda (Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha) is adapting those character designs for animation. Typhoon Graphics (animation production assistance for Digimon Adventure tri. films) is animating the series. Eiji Mano is in charge of the original story, and Aose Shimoi is writing the scripts. Takashi Sakuma is the executive producer, Hiroki Matsumoto of Atelier PLATZ is the art director, Chieko Hibi is in charge of color design, Fumi Namba is the composite director, and Shun Tokuda is editing the series. Entertainment label SMIRAL (Anime De Training! Ex, Makura no Danshi) is in charge of the original concept.

One Room will air on Tokyo MX and will stream on Niconico. The series will tell "three stories raised in your (one) room." The official website for the anime also states that "you" are the protagonist for the series.

A spinoff anime series titled Room Mate: One Room side M will then premiere in April. The series will tell "another story" featuring male characters. Hidari ([email protected], Fractale, Santa Company) is designing the characters for the series.
