The official Facebook page of NHK World announced on Thursday that it will stream the anime adaptation of Aiko Koyama's Maiko-san Chi no Makanai-san (Makanai in the Maiko Lodge) manga in February 2021. The announcement stated the anime will have a series format.
NHK World streams some of its programs with English subtitles worldwide.
The manga's story is set in Kyoto's "hanamachi" geisha quarter. Here, after geisha finish their work late at night, they spend the night resting at a lodge to prepare for the next day. The story centers on Kiyo, an Aomori native who works as a cook in a geisha lodge in Kyoto after finishing junior high school and leaving home. She also has a friend named Sumire who is a maiko, or apprentice geisha.
The manga recently won the Best Shōnen Manga award in the 65th Shogakukan Manga Awards in January.
