A scan made available of Manga Time Kirara Max
magazine's May issue revealed that 4-koma manga Wakaba*Girl
will be adapted to anime.
The short TV series will premiere as part of the new Ultra Super Anime Time programming block on Tokyo MX and BS11 in July. Thirty minutes in length, Ultra Super Anime Time will consist of 3 ten-minute shorts. The previously announced third season of Wooser no Sono Higurashi
will also fill one of the three airing slots.
Three chapters of Yui Hara
were serialized between 2010 and 2011 in the Otome Tsuushin
anthology series by publisher Sousaku Koubou. In 2013, they were compiled by Houbunsha and published in a single volume, along with the fourth and final chapter.
The 4-koma series is about a young girl named Wakaba Kohashi, who has an elegant air befitting her given name, meaning "fresh leaves." Despite her looks, Wakaba is fascinated by the gyaru
subculture, a label applied to fashion-conscious young women who typically have bleached hair, tanned skin, and heavy make-up. This story follows the daily life of Wakaba and her friends, and the time that they spend together.
Yui Hara is best known for her manga series Kiniro Mosaic
. The anime adaptation's second season, Hello!! Kiniro Mosaic
, begins airing on April 6.
