It has been announced that an original TV anime series titled "Miss Monochrome" will start airing from October. The original character design came from seiyuu Horie Yui. In March 2012, she first used the "Miss Monochrome" character as a 3D virtual singer to sing her songs at her concert "Horie Yui wo Meguru Bouken III ~Secret Mission Tour~". Later, the character appeared in a range of merchandise as well as in the social network game "Girlfriend (Beta)".

According to the setting, Miss Monochrome loves only the monochrome style, dislikes all kinds of color, and always dreams about changing the world into her favorite monochrome color.

The anime is slated to be directed by Iwasaki Yoshiaki. Other staff and cast information has not been disclosed yet.

^ Thanks for translating. The only snag is the position of the surname: In Horie's case it is placed last but in Fujiwara's case it is placed first.

If we keep it consistent and put all surname first, the list should be:

Miss Monochrome: Horie Yui
Maneo: Fujiwara Keiji
KIKUKO: Inoue Kikuko
Mana: Kanda Akemi

Original Character: Horie Yui
Director: Iwasaki Yoshiaki
Series Composition: Fudeyasu Kazuyuki
Character Design: Morimoto Yuuki
Character design cooperation: Nakamura Naoto
Sound Director: Akitagawa Jin
Music: Ookawa Shigenobu

Damn, another 5 minutes show. Nevertheless, I'm still watching it like Hoppy said.

Darn, I was expecting at least 12 minutes for this anime, but I'll still watch it.

Confirmed to be a 5 minute short.

Also animation production by Liden Films and Sanzigen

I expected a typical mahou shoujo design, but this looks very shounen-ish. I do not have very high hopes for a TV-only (No manga) Anime, but I will give this one a chance.

I am excited for the original songs that Yui Horie will be singing for this anime.

This looks like a lot of fun. It would be fantastic if it was a full anime but I feel it might be a short.

I'm a sucker for everything Hocchan does, so I'm definitely in.

Short series or not. Though probably it will be short I'm going to watch this out of curiosity :)

The only thing I can think about this show is:


someone tell Yui Horie to sing that please

Aug 11, 2013 10:16 PM by ElHuesudoII

I'm curious. Will check this out xD

More Hocchan is always nice. :3

I love Horie Yui's voice when she is playing a character. I tend to like a lot of characters that are voiced by her.

As long as it isn't one of those three to five minute episode long anime shows, and the graphics looking appealing like some of the artwork I have seen based on that girl, then me will so be watching this.

The character looks awesome. It's Yui, so it's definitely going on my list.

I might erase it if it's short 3 minute episodes or something like that.

I hope they turn it into a full fledged series because the character looks awesome.
