Joshiraku

The manga is serialized in the shounen manga magazine Bessatsu Shounen Magazine.
Currently there are 3 volumes released of this manga.

Covers:



Story: Kji Kumeta (Sayonara Zetsubou-Sensei )
Art: Yasu (Toradora)

Genre: Shounen, Comedy

And here is the anime staff:

Director: Tsutomu Mizushima (Ika Musume, Ookiku Furikabutte)
Series Composition: Michiko Yokote (Ika Musume, Kobato)
Character Design: Masayoshi Tanaka (Toradora, Ano Natsu de Matteru)
Animation Production: J.C. Staff

No cast info yet.


I liked Another more than Blood-C but in the end I apreciate Mizushima's return to comedy.

Yasu x JC Staff with Masayoshi Tanaka = Tora-Dora character designs. Happy.

What I read of the manga very much reminded me of Zetsubo-Sensei(same manga author), meaning its characters talking, talking, and talking. Wonder if JC Staff can make this as interesting as SHAFT did.

This appears to be the official site for it:

This is one of the series I am curious about in the upcoming Summer 2012. I have read the first volume of the manga (I think they are up to ch 12 now?), but I am curious to see what they will do with this series. Somehow it feels this could be a sleeper hit if done well....

Midonin 2012-06-18 20:12

It's been a long time since I've seen a Koji Kumeta based series. That alone makes it worth a look.

I'm a bit concerned about what JCStaff will do to this series. I saw an image with the girls in school uniforms, which bothers me because they explicitly stated their age in the manga and the fact that they're already done with school.

Considering their history, I'm worried that they might deviate from the source material again.

You sure that wasn't some fanart?There's nothing like that in any of the official art I've seen.
Squid Girl was faithfull overall from what I've heard so I expect this to be as well.

Spoiler for summer 2012 chart:


Look at Joshiraku. The girls are in their school uniforms. Someone else on another forum also found the same image on the main site here, but the image was removed.

Since it was in the "special" part of the website along with twitter avatars and wallpapers it could just have been some sort of non canon promo image,I've seen those before.

So I'm not really worried.

Short preview has gone up


Flower 2012-06-21 15:21

Hrm ... well ... better than nothing for now. :heh:

Thanks for the "short". :)

Raghe 2012-07-02 18:32

2 days =D

NoemiChan 2012-07-03 08:44

Is this an "all girl cast"?

Stevie_Nix 2012-07-03 13:03

If it really is a SoL gag series with an all female cast, its right up my ally.

Utsuro no Hako 2012-07-03 22:10

From what I read of the manga, it's a more upscale version of Cute Girls Doing Cute Things -- instead of eating cake, they discuss the difficulty of distinguishing 犬, 大, and 太.

Midonin 2012-07-03 22:18

And a little black comedy. It is Koji Kumeta writing.

totoum 2012-07-03 22:30

I do like it when the girls go "aren't we supposed to be discussing cute things"!
