Sentai will ship Himouto! Umaru-chan on Blu-Ray on May 30. The publisher will reveal the rest of the cast later this week.

Himouto! Umaru-chan is based on Sankaku Head’s manga of the same name. The series, which aired in the Spring 2016 broadcast season, was directed by Masahiko Ohta at studio Doga Kobo. Yasuhiro Misawa served as sound director, and Takashi Aoshima handled the show’s composition and screenplay. Previously, the three worked together on YuruYuri.

Character designs were handled by Polar Bear’s Cafe character designer Aya Takano.

Sentai Filmworks describes the show as:

Umaru has two faces: her “outside face” is a reserved beauty, renown throughout the school and community for her flawless manners, talent, and intelligence. Her dreaded “inside face,” the face her responsible older brother Taihei deals with daily, is a lazy, game -playing, snack-binging brat. As Umaru hides her ability to methodically pair junk food with cola, Taihei attempts to devise ways to reign in her epic laziness by any means necessary.

A second season was officially unveiled earlier this month. The series, which airs this fall, will see much of the original cast and crew reuniting for the project.

Earlier this week, Sentai streamed a pair of teasers to announce Neves and Noble’s casting as Umaru and Taihei, respectively. You can check these out below:
