According to the latest issue of magazine Manga Palette, 4-koma manga "Mikakunin de Shinkoukei" will get a TV anime adaptation. The manga is written by Arai Cherry and started serialization in Manga Palette in 2009. So far, three volumes have been published.

The manga is about the ordinary girl Yonomi Kobeni who suddenly heard that she is betrothed to a guy named Mitsumine Hakuya who is the same age as her. Somehow, Hakuya moved in from the countryside and started to live with her, bringing his younger sister who is still a primary school student with him. Also added is Kobeni's elder sister who already lives with Kobeni and is two years older. The story revolves around these four people and their identities as "couples" and "sisters-in-law."

The anime will be made by studio Doga Kobo and directed by Fujiwara Yoshiyuki, who previously directed GJ-bu. Shimo Fumihiko will handle the series composition (he held the same position in Kokoro Connect, Infinite Stratos, and the two seasons of Clannad). Kikuchi Ai will handle the character design.

Hopefully it is not short anime...

As for the cast, except for the guy Hakuya the other 3 girls seem to be voiced by rookie seiyuu... Hope it is going to be alright...

And I still hope for Sansha Sanyou, by the same author, to be animated sometime in future...

Dogakobo? Director of GJ-bu? Series composition by the one responsible for KC and Clannad?

Why is it a waste of money if people in Japan love it? Why should they make things that only please you? I see arrogance and cultural bigotry at play here.

To... make people laugh? Ikr, it's difficult for me to understand too.

Sounds interesting, I'm up for it.
