It was announced by director Itsuki Imazaki on his official Twitter that the anime adaptation of 4-koma manga Fushigi na Somera-chan was not an April Fools' joke and is already in progress. The PV of the anime was first posted on April Fools' Day, but was updated today to confirm the anime adaptation.

Fushigi na Somera-chan began in Manga Pallete Lite's September 2008 issue and was serialized until the magazine was suspended in April 2011. While some other series were transferred to different magazines, Fushigi na Somera-chan is still marked as on-hiatus on Ichijinsha's official page. Serialized chapters were compiled into two volumes, which are currently only available for digital purchase.

The series was written and illustrated by Choboraunyopomi, the mangaka of Ai Mai Mii. Imazaki also directed Ai Mai Mii's two TV anime seasons, broadcast in Winter 2013 and Summer 2014.

The story follows the everyday life of Somera Nonomoto who can use the strongest kenpo, Nonomoto Mahou-ken, which is inherited from her mother with her younger sister Kukuru. (Source: Crunchyroll)

Not enough hook from that synopsis, so I'll say no until further information gets released.

Hmmm.....I'll skip this.

Could be funny, could be incredibly stupid. I'll watch it.

If this were a short, I probably would watch it. But, unfortunately, at 20min per episode, I just don't want to risk forcing myself to finish it.

It looks like it is going to be a short anime. I will watch it.

Eh.. Somera-chan is somewhat cute, but that is all. Coming from the mangaka of "Ai Mai Mi," this is probably already ridiculous enough.

It seems a bit weird even for my tastes.

What's this, aNOTHER trick???

And WHY the hell isn't this on MAL ??

Well this one wasn't April Fools but the premise and stuff still looks silly. Not very excited about it and it's probably a short.

Though I hated Ai Mai Mii, I might (Huge emphasis on "might") check this out.
