posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
1st OVA airs tonight at 8:30 p.m. GMT +8, with weekend encore airings

Aniplus-Asia announced on Friday that it will air the first OVA episode of the television anime of Yūki Yaku's Bottom-Tier Character Tomozaki (Jaku Chara Tomozaki-kun) light novel series. The episode will premiere tonight at 8:30 p.m. GMT +8, with an encore broadcast on Saturday at 9:00 p.m. GMT +8, Sunday at 6:00 p.m and 11:30 p.m. GMT +8.

The first OVA episode, titled "Weird Spell Names Usually Have Unknown Origins," was bundled with the third Blu-ray Disc and DVD home video volume of the anime on May 7. A second episode was bundled with the fourth volume on June 2.

The anime premiered on January 8. Aniplus-Asia aired a simulcast of the anime as it aired in Japan.

Yen Press is releasing the novel series in English in North America, and it describes the story:

Tomozaki is one of the best gamers in Japan, and in his opinion, the game of real life is one of the worst. No clear-cut rules for success, horribly balanced, and nothing makes sense. But then he meets a gamer who's just as good as him, and she offers to teach him a few exploits…

Shinsuke Yanagi (Angel's 3Piece, The Ryuo's Work Is Never Done!) directed the anime at project No.9. Fumihiko Shimo (The Ryuo's Work Is Never Done!, Myriad Colors Phantom World) oversaw the series scripts, and Akane Yano (The Ryuo's Work Is Never Done!, High School Prodigies Have It Easy Even In Another World) designed the characters. Hiromi Mizutani (Non Non Biyori, Shomin Sample) composed the music. Pony Canyon and APDREAM were the music producers. Satoshi Motoyama (My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU) was the audio director. Bit Groove Promotion was credted for the sound production. Dream Shift was credited as producer.

Voice actress idol group DIALOGUE+ performed the anime's opening and ending theme songs. The opening song is titled "Jinsei Easy?" (Life Is on Easy Mode?), while the ending theme song is titled "Ayafuwa Asterisk."
