While it’s not quite as sweet as a full season, we’ll take what we can get.
The latest volume of the Himouto! Umaru-chan manga (Volume 9), as well as the first volume of spin-off series Akita Imokko! Ebina-chan reveal that a new Himouto! Umaru-chan OAD is in the works.
The core cast and crew will return for the episode. Masahiko Ohta (YuruYuri, Love Lab) will helm the project at studio Doga Kobo, with Aya Takano (Polar Bear’s Cafe) providing character designs. Takashi Aoshima (Gabriel Dropout, YuruYuri) will write the screenplay, while Yasuhiro Misawa serves as sound director.
The Himouto! Umaru-chan anime series aired during the Summer 2015 broadcast season. After the show aired, an OAD episode was released with the seventh compiled volume of Sankaku Head’s Himouto! Umaru-chan manga when it hit stores in August 2015.
Umaru is a renowned beautiful 16-year-old girl in town, living with her elder brother Taihei. She acts a perfect sister with a kind heart, intelligence and popularity, who everybody admires. So who would believe how true Umaru is at home? Sleeping, gaming, watching TV, eating junk food, drinking cola… that’s almost all she does at home, leaving all the housework to her brother.
