WWW_Working Key Visual 002 - 20160826Sometimes, you wanna go where everybody knows your name. And they’re always glad you came. Wait, no, I’m thinking of Cheers.

Last night, Aniplex of America announced that they acquired the domestic rights to WWW.Wagnaria!! (WWW.Working!!). The company plans to stream the show as part of its Fall 2016 offerings.

Crunchyroll will carry WWW.Wagnaria!! as a simulcast, with episodes streaming an hour after their Japanese airing. The first episode will debut on the platform on October 1, at 9:00AM Pacific (noon Eastern). The series will be available for fans in the following regions:

  • North America
  • Central America
  • South America
  • Australia
  • New Zealand
  • United Kingdom
  • Ireland

Daisuki will also stream the show, though it will receive episodes one week after broadcast.

wwwworking-visual-001-201600930WWW.Working!! is based on the web manga of the same name. Yumi Kamakura, who helmed the last season of Wagnaria!!, will return to direct the project at A-1 Pictures. Seven cast members were confirmed at the show’s announcement, including:

  • Daisuke Higashida: Yuichi Nakamura
  • Hana Miyakoshi: Haruka Tomatsu
  • Shiho Kamakura: Sora Amemiya
  • Yuta Shindo: Kensho Ono
  • Sayuri Fumie: Yoko Hikasa
  • Masahiro Adachi: Kouki Uchiyama
  • Kisaki Kondo: Nana Mizuki
  • Miri Yanagiba: Momo Asakura
  • Rui Nagata: Ari Ozawa
  • Takuya Kono: Hiro Shimono
  • Kouki Saiki: Yoshimasa Hosoya
  • Kenichiro Sakaki: Kosuke Toriumi

Several players previously voiced their characters on a drama CD that shipped with the third collected volume of the series. Nana Mizuki is replacing Risa Taneda as Kisaki Kondo, as Taneda is going on hiatus for medical reasons.
Aniplex of America describes the show as:

Daisuke Higashida starts working part-time at a family restaurant due to financial difficulties at home. However, between a shift manager who is hopeless when it comes to cooking, and the wait staff’s reliance on the power of money, it seems this restaurant doesn’t have a single normal person working there!

The show will kick off on Tokyo MX on October 1. Several character visuals and a two-minute promo teaser were released to promote the series, which you can check out below:
