Anime production company Yostar Pictures announced an original anime titled Sorairo Utility (Sky Blue Utility) on Monday. The announcement was accompanied with the first key visual (pictured).

The studio's director Kengo Saitou (SSSS.Gridman chief animation director) said on his official Twitter, "I'm happy, they've allowed me to create the golf anime that I've repeatedly said I want to create." Saitou further mentioned that staff, cast, and other information will be released at a later date.

Yostar Pictures was founded last February and has adapted games such as Azur Lane and Arknights into anime. Sorairo Utility will be the studio's first original anime.

Well, it was originally used for moking anime like K-ON!, when such shows were unnecessarily new and were often criticized for lack of plot and over-emphasis on moe fanservice. Now, people are often use this word as a designation for a "subgenre" in SoL.
Ahhhh okay, I gotcha....I might start using it too then lol


No problem. You even gave me some nostalgia by "forcing" me to remember the times when K-ON! was something of a modern isekai, lol.

Cute Girls Doing Cute Thing. In the original Japanese slang, these shows are called Girl's Zoo, which I think is more successful, especially in terms of meta.

Well, poster do say a lot to me. I would be be extremely surprised if it not like all girl anime like panzer or jet girls

Comparing a show to Girls und Panzer is, like, an ultimate compliment, you must feel really optimistic about this anime then, maybe it will indeed deliver

What CGDCT are we missing at this point?

Funny enough, I don't remember a CGDCT about healthcare, at least not amongst animated ones. Would be neato to have a cute girls' Scrubs in the anime industry.

So, now it is golf. What's next? Pétanque? Air Hockey? Squash? I don't know

Wait for the new golf girl gacha in the app store nearest to you.

So they made golf even more shit and sports anime even more boring? Cool.

Oct 26, 4:14 AM by Thigh_Tide

I thought Yostar will animate only their games.

First time knowing there's a anime about golfing. Interesting.

Though I'm more interested in Blue Archive getting an anime series.

GOLF? damn any type of activity can become an anime nowadays

Kengo loves golf and cycling so this isn't a surprise to me. I'm happy he got his own series.

You don't like all-female shows that much?

Not necessarily, but yeah atleast anime original ones. I am not able to complete a single one.
