posted on by Egan Loo
The official website for the television anime of Kumanano and 029's Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear light novels posted the anime's first promotional video and a key visual on Friday. Both the website and the video announced the anime's cast and staff.
The anime stars:
Azumi Waki as Fina, a girl Yuna encounters in the alternate world
Yuu Nobuta (High School Fleet, A Good Librarian Like a Good Shepherd) is directing the anime at EMT Squared. Takashi Aoshima (Himouto! Umaru-chan, Yuruyuri - Happy Go Lily) is in charge of the series scripts, and Yuki Nakano (A Destructive God Sits Next to Me) is designing the characters.
Seven Seas Entertainment is publishing the novels in English, and it describes the story:
Fifteen-year-old Yuna prefers staying home and obsessively playing her favorite VRMMO game to doing anything else, including going to school. When a strange new update gives her a one-of-a-kind bear outfit that comes with overpowered abilities, Yuna is torn: the outfit is unbearably cute, but too embarrassing to wear in-game. But then she suddenly finds herself transported into the world of the game, facing down monsters and magic for real, and the bear suit becomes the best weapon she has!
Kumanano began serializing the ongoing story in the Shōsetsuka ni Narō (Let's Become Novelists) website in 2014. Shufu to Seikatsu Sha began publishing the story in print with art by 029 in May 2015, and the company published the 13th volume on August 30.
Sergei launched the manga in Shufu to Seikatsu Sha's Comic Pash! manga website in 2014, and the company published the manga's third volume on August 30.
