Studio Gokumi (Tsuredure Children, Yuki Yuna is a Hero, Toji no Miko) announced on Monday that it is producing a new original television anime titled Endro~! that will premiere in January 2019. The anime's official website debuted three different visuals from three different illustrators. Namori (Yuruyuri), the project's original character designer, illustrated the first visual below.
Haruko Iizuka (Sisters of Wellber, Tamayura, Children of the Whales), the anime's animation character designer, drew the second visual below.
Izumi Minami, who will launch a manga adaptation of the project on Hobby Japan's Comic Fire website this summer, drew the below visual.
The anime's website does not reveal the anime's story, but hints that it will be an "everyday fantasy."
Kaori (Yuyushiki, How to keep a mummy) is directing the anime. Takashi Aoshima (Yuruyuri - Happy Go Lily, Love Lab, Himouto! Umaru-chan) is in charge of series composition. As stated above, Namori is the original character designer, and Iizuka is adapting the original character designs for animation.
The project is also getting a figure from Amakuni, and designed by Grizzry Panda.
Namori launched the Yuruyuri manga in 2008, and Ichijinsha shipped the manga's 16th compiled book volume on January 30. JManga and ALC Publishing released part of the original manga digitally in English before JManga shut down in 2013. The manga recently entered an indefinite hiatus on July 18. Namori is also the character designer for Release the Spyce, an upcoming original television anime that will premiere in October.
The Yuruyuri manga inspired three main television anime seasons that Crunchyroll streamed as they aired. The manga also inspired the Yuruyuri Nachu Yachumi! original video anime, which received the two-episode Yuruyuri Nachu Yachumi!+ television anime sequel before the third season debuted in 2015. NIS America licensed and released the first two anime seasons on home video in North America.
