It’s hard to believe that it has been a decade since Namori first introduced us to Akari and the rest of the Yuruyuri gang. And to celebrate that 10th anniversary, the anime adaptation will be receiving a special OVA. Now, the official twitter page has posted its new teaser visual featuring Akari herself:
Shinkalion assistant director Daigo Yamagishi will be making his directorial debut for the new OVA. He will be working alongside RELEASE THE SPYCE writer Takahiro, who will be penning the script. Lay-duce will be animating the new project, taking over for Doga KOBO and TYO Animations.
And that’s not all for the franchise’s 10th anniversary. This is because they will be launching a crowdfunding project from 25 December until 18 February. Rewards include a special CD featuring the anime’s new OP and ED, as well as a limited edition Blu-ray copy of the OVA. It will also include a ticket for a limited event in Tokyo on 3 March 2019, with Akari calling your name over during the event itself. They will also include a special autographed illustration by Namori, featuring your own personal favorite character. They will announce more details on the crowdfunding effort, including its goals, at a later date.
As for the OVA itself, it will still push through with its release next year even if they don’t meet the crowdfunding goal.
