More details on the anime adaptation of Akane’s Puchimas! -Petit [email protected] 4-panel manga strips were revealed earlier today at the Dengeki 20th Anniversary Festival. For starters, the series was described as a “puchi anime” with each episode being roughly two minutes in length.
The upside of the super-short length, however, is that new episodes will be served daily from Mondays to Fridays (repeats on Saturdays and Sundays), and that all of it will be streamed on Animate TV and Nico Nico Douga. The series premieres 1 January 2013.
No word yet on whether the puchi anime series will be aired on TV in Japan or not, but chances are the series will be net-only (until they come out on DVD/Blu-ray, of course).
Details on the series’ production staff were also unveiled for the first time at the event. Gathering Co. (Kakko-Kawaii Sengen!, Tono to Issho, 30-sai no Hoken Taiiku) will handle the animation work, with Tono to Issho (watch it on Crunchyroll here) and Kakko-Kawaii Sengen!’s Mankyuu serving as director and 30-sai no Hoken Taiiku‘s Tamado Sao taking up character design duties.
Outside of the Net anime series, fans can also look forward to a throng of single CD releases (12 in total) featuring the different [email protected] and Puchimas characters. Each CD will feature a pair of characters – Takane & Takanya, for instance – and these will gradually roll out beginning from 9 January 2013.
Each CD, priced at 1,260 yen including tax, contains the solo versions of the Net anime series’ opening and ending themes (the ending theme will change every month; at least three EDs have been produced), as well as an original track(s) tailored for the character in question.
