Come on… no “The Spyce must flow” jokes yet? Boo.
Earlier today, an official website and Twitter account opened to announce an original anime project, titled Release the Spyce. The project is a collaboration between Yuruyuri creator Namori and Yuki Yuna Is a Hero creator Takahiro.
The project will also be the cover of the next issue of Kadokawa’s Dengeki G’s Comic, which hits newsstands tomorrow. The first staff and cast, as well as a character visual and a brief plot overview were officially revealed. We break the details down below.

The series will star the following:

- Yuki Hanzōmon: Manami Numakura
- Mei Yachiyo: Aya Suzaki
- Fū Sagami: Akane Fujita
- Hatsume Aoba: Aya Uchida

Release the Spyce will revolve around Momo Minamoto, a high school girl in the city of Sorasaki. Momo’s very different from most people her age, though. She’s actually an agent for the private intelligence agency Tsukikage, which protects the city and its citizens from harm. Under the careful instruction of her senior Yuki, Momo and her other friends keep the peace.
A manga adaptation of Release the Spyce is also in the works. The series, titled Release the Spyce – Naisho no Mission (Release the Spyce – Secret Mission) will feature art by Meia Mitsuki. The title will launch in tomorrow’s issue of Dengeki G’s Comic.
But wait, there’s more.
A light novel series, titled Release the Spyce – Golden Genesis will launch in Dengeki G’s Comic‘s next issue. This particular will focus on Yuki Hanzōmon, Momo’s senior.
