posted on by Egan Loo
The official website for Studio Gokumi's original Winter 2019 television anime Endro~! began streaming its first character promotional video on Thursday. The video reveals that Hikaru Akao is voicing one of the main characters, Yūsha (Yūria Sharudetto).
Yūsha's name is a wordplay on the Japanese word for "brave." The website will reveal the next character on August 30.
Kaori (Yuyushiki, How to keep a mummy) is directing the "everyday fantasy" anime. Takashi Aoshima (Yuruyuri - Happy Go Lily, Love Lab, Himouto! Umaru-chan) is in charge of series composition. Namori (Yuruyuri) is the original character designer, and Haruko Iizuka (Sisters of Wellber, Tamayura, Children of the Whales) is adapting the original character designs for animation.
Izumi Minami launched a manga adaptation of the project on Hobby Japan's Comic Fire website on Thursday.
The anime's official website had debuted three different visuals from three different illustrators last month. Namori illustrated the first visual below.
Iizuka drew the second visual below.
Minami drew the below visual.
The project is also getting a figure from Amakuni, 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.
