It’s a happy day for fans of Unhappy♪!
Earlier today, the official Unhappy♪ anime’s Twitter account revealed the show’s main staff. Shin Oonuma (Baka and Test, Watamote) was tapped to direct the series at Silver Link. Miwa Oshima (Baka and Test) will fill the dual role of character designer and chief animation director, while Go! Princess Precure writer handles the show’s scripts.
In addition, the show’s website went live with confirmation of a Spring 2016 première date.
Unhappy♪ is a four-panel comedy series that began running in the February 2013 issue of Manga Time Kirara Forward. The series is set in Class 1-7 of Tennogofune Academy. This particular class is a home for students with “negative karma.”
In plain English, it’s a class for the truly unlucky.
It’s in this class, though, that Hibari finds herself. On the first day of school, she meets Hanako, a girl plagued with the most horrific of luck, and the perennially sickly Botan. Together, the three try to find a way to make the best of their existence, by turning their school life into a happy one.
Yen Press currently holds the rights to the Unhappy♪ manga, which they’ll release in North America under the title Unhappy Go Lucky!
