The official Twitter account for Production I.G's "Tate Anime" (Vertical Anime) app began streaming a promotional video for its anime adaptation of Kōichirō Matsushita's Hitori Gurashi no Shōgakusei (Latchkey Grade Schooler) manga on Friday.
The anime will premiere on the app on October 10.
The Hitori Gurashi no Shōgakusei four-panel manga debuted in 2014 in Amazon's Kindle ebook service, and centers on an impoverished nine-year-old grade schooler without a single relative and who lives in a dining room. The story focuses on her everyday life. Takarajimasha published a two-volume sequel manga titled Hitori Gurashi no Shōgakusei Enoshima no Sora in May and November last year.
The "Tate Anime" app launched on June 5. The app offers short (about three-minute) anime that update every weekday, and each series has 10 episodes. The new anime in the app are presented vertically for smartphones. The app is aimed at people who do not have time to watch television or do not own a television.
