Anime production company Yostar Pictures announced an original anime titled Sorairo Utility (Sky Blue Utility) on Monday. The announcement was accompanied with the first key visual (pictured).

The studio's director Kengo Saitou (SSSS.Gridman chief animation director) said on his official Twitter, "I'm happy, they've allowed me to create the golf anime that I've repeatedly said I want to create." Saitou further mentioned that staff, cast, and other information will be released at a later date.

Yostar Pictures was founded last February and has adapted games such as Azur Lane and Arknights into anime. Sorairo Utility will be the studio's first original anime.

I would be glad if the guys first learned how to make quality adaptations of their games before doing original shows.

This studio is on a roll now lol

But alas, Japan truly has a goal of turning every sport into an anime so I'll just add this to the list xD

Yostar?

I wonder if they'll ever do a Jyantama (Mahong Soul) anime.
We're the same. Nuisances with nowhere to go.

Comparing a show to Girls und Panzer is, like, an ultimate compliment, you must feel really optimistic about this anime then, maybe it will indeed deliver

Funny enough, I don't remember a CGDCT about healthcare, at least not amongst animated ones. Would be neato to have a cute girls' Scrubs in the anime industry.

Kengo loves golf and cycling so this isn't a surprise to me. I'm happy he got his own series.

I thought Yostar will animate only their games.

First time knowing there's a anime about golfing. Interesting.

Though I'm more interested in Blue Archive getting an anime series.

There is a series of yuri visual novels about nurses, lol. It's actually kind of like Higurashi, but if you want a medical CGDCT ...

Cute Girls Doing Cute Thing. In the original Japanese slang, these shows are called Girl's Zoo, which I think is more successful, especially in terms of meta.

Well, it was originally used for moking anime like K-ON!, when such shows were unnecessarily new and were often criticized for lack of plot and over-emphasis on moe fanservice. Now, people are often use this word as a designation for a "subgenre" in SoL.

No problem. You even gave me some nostalgia by "forcing" me to remember the times when K-ON! was something of a modern isekai, lol.
