A scan of Young Jump's upcoming issue, available on June 18, has revealed that manga Himouto! Umaru-chan will bundle an OVA together with its seventh volume on October 19.

The OVA will be an unaired episode of the TV anime adaptation, which will begin airing on July 9. Masahiko Oota, well-versed in comedy, slice-of-life TV series, will be directing the anime. He, composer Yasuhiro Misawa, and writer Takashi Aoshima have worked together on many TV series prior to Himouto! Umaru-chan, including Mitsudome, Yuru Yuri, and Kotoura-san. Doga Kobo, the studio behind Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun and Yuru Yuri, will be animating both the TV anime and OVA episode.

Himouto! Umaru-chan is written and illustrated by SankakuHead. It began serialization in seinen magazine Young Jump in March 2013. The manga series is currently publishing.

Still no word on whether the TV anime is shorts or not? Maybe it's normal length then.

It's normal length.

Could you provide a source on this? I really doubt it has enough material for 4 hours of content, so I was expecting a cour of 3-minute episodes. Then again, maybe I'm completely wrong.

Also with the exception of Mangirl, I think Doga Kobo has always been adapating TV series to full length.

Also the time slot seems to suggest so

Finally, it would make little sense to announce an OVA of a series under 5 minutes.

perhaps they'll handle it like Nichijou? with a number of different stories for each episode?
