Class is in session! Almost!
Earlier today, FUNimation announced that they acquired the domestic rights to Mikagura School Suite. FUNimation plans to simulcast the series, though a première date and time have not been announced as of press time.
Mikagura School Suite is based on Last Note’s light novel series of the same name. Tarou Iwasaki (Baki the Grappler, One Week Friends) is directing the series at Dogakobo, which also animated Monthly Girls’ Nozaki-kun. Manamu Amazaki is pulling double duty on the series as character designer and chief animation director. Free! writer Masahiro Yokotani will write the show’s scripts.

FUNimation’s official synopsis for Mikagura School Suite is as follows:
From the studio behind Laughing Under the Clouds and Yuruyuri comes a high school fantasy unlike any other! Like most awkward teens, formerly reclusive gamer Eruna Ichinomiya struggle to find her place at Mikagura High School. But her experience is far from ordinary, as the mischief-making members of the school’s manga, calligraphy, drama, and other cultural clubs vie for total school domination in a rather extreme way—ULTIMATE ATTACKS. Get ready for the high-energy high school adventure you’ve only ever dreamed of.
You’ll wish that your high school was this much fun!
