Ebina Stars In Himouto! Umaru-chan Manga Spinoff

Umaru Doma’s world is about to get a little bigger!

Earlier today, Himouto! Umaru-chan creator Sankaku Head announced that a spinoff to his popular series is in the works. The new title, titled Akita Imokko! Ebina-chan will begin publication on Nico Nico Seiga this November.

Rough Translation: This is a new series announcement! At the end of November, Akita Imokko! Ebina-chan will begin serialization in Nico Nico Seiga and other publications! I’d like to make a comic that shows off Ebina-chan’s maximum cuteness!

Himouto! Umaru-chan first appeared in the pages of Shueisha’s Weekly Young Jump magazine in 2013. The title, which currently spans 6 collected volumes, received an anime adaptation that aired in the Summer 2015 season. A PlayStation Vita game based on the series will hit stores on December 3.
