A second anime film for Tozen Ujiie's Seitokai Yakuindomo manga was announced by Kodansha on Friday. The film is scheduled to open in Japan on July 10, 2020. The first wave of advance ticket sales will begin on December 27, which will include a bonus item.

Voice actress Miho Okasaki (Tensei shitara Slime Datta Ken) will join the cast as the character Yuu Hirose. Cast members from the previous anime installments will reprise their roles in the film.

Returning production staff at animation studio GoHands include director and scriptwriter Hiromichi Kanazawa, character designer and chief animation director Makoto Furuta, art director Ken Naitou, color designer Ryuusuke Araki, sound director Ryou Tanaka, and music composer Yuya Mori. Chinami Watanabe (Hinomaruzumou) and Shinnosuke Takesada are replacing Saori Tadokoro and Takanori Kikuchi as the editor and photography director, respectively.

The 4-koma school comedy manga originally ran in Kodansha's monthly Magazine Special from May 2007 to June 2008 and subsequently switched to Weekly Shounen Magazine. Kodansha published the 18th volume on August 16, which bundled the 17th OVA episode. The 19th volume will ship with the 18th OVA episode on September 17, 2020.

GoHands produced two 13-episode anime seasons in Summer 2010 and Winter 2014. The first anime film, commemorating the manga's 10th anniversary, premiered in Japan in July 2017.

Sentai Filmworks licensed both seasons and the anime film this September and will release all three installments on home video on December 10.

can someone tell me how good the romance gets?

Watch it,its excellent.As for romance,theres a lot more innuendo than romance,but the jokes are hilarious.I don't think I've watched any other anime from season 1 through to the movie and ova's that hasn't made me laugh at every bloody episode.This deserves another season,but I'll happily take another movie and some ova's.
Just watch it,you hopefully won't regret it.
Btw,keep an eye out for the "Takatoshi and dried squid" bits,damn funny as all hell :)

I heard that GoHands is on the brink of bankruptcy, so it is obvious that they will milk the only decent franchise they have.
Anyway, it's nice to see more shinoneta.

I'm honestly impressed with their ability to keep pushing more and more of this anime out, but I'm totally okay with it.

I guess this anime will never end...which is a very good thing.

petition for gohands to keep doing SYD until the manga ends.

Dec 5, 2019 10:46 PM by Vegetableisbadfo

GoHands should just keep doing this instead of doing more K or Hand Shaker.
