If you like slice-of-life comedy anime series like Lucky Star and K-On!, then make sure to keep a lookout for Yuyushiki anime when it goes on the air in Japan sometime in April (starting with Tokyo MX).
Adapted from the four-panel comic of the same name that’s currently serialised in Manga Time Kirara magazine, Yuyushiki is a story about essentially nothing, as many such slice-of-life gag comedy shows are often about, revolving around the lives of three high-school girls who are all members of their school’s data processing club (情報処理部).
Yuyushiki re-unites two of the leading voice actresses in YuruYuri: Rumi Okubo (Chinatsu) as Yuzuko Nonohara the simple-minded and naive one of the trio, and Minami Tsuda (Yui) who now plays Yui Ichii, the series’s comic relief. They are joined by Risa Taneda (From the New World’s Saki) who plays the Yukari Hinata the chief of the data processing club.
A new promo video for the upcoming anime was first shown to attendees at the recent Comic Market 83 event held in Makuhari Messe from December 29 to 31, 2012, but did not make its way to the vast, almighty medium we call the Interwebs back then. This week, it finally has:
