It seems like we’re on something of a hot streak of good yuri news lately, and that streak continues with the news that Kishi Torajirou’s yuri comedy Otome no Teikoku is slated to get a “petit” anime adaptation.
Any yuri manga getting an anime adaptation should be good news, but don’t get your hopes up too high however, as the advertisement in Grand Jump Web says the characters will “move for about six seconds”. That tidbit of information pours some cold water on everything—and how exactly that is going to work out is beyond me—but it should still be interesting to see how this adaptation turns out.
How short “petit” is will be the key question going forward to determine if this’ll be anything more than a diversion, but let’s remain optimistic.
Most other details are still scarce at this point, but a little light has been shed as to who’ll be working to bring this to reality. Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica Movie 3: Rebellion‘s animation director is drawing the animation, Kishi Torajirou himself is handling the coloring, and a character designer from Dungeon ni Deai wo Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru Darou ka is contributing to the illustration as well.
The promotional video is set to debut today, so be sure to keep a look out for that.
2015 has been pretty generous thus far with all the yuri goodness, so here’s to hoping that trend continues throughout the rest of the year and beyond~
