Sorry Girlish Number fans, because it seems that the promised Girlish Number Shura TV anime won’t be coming. This is because the anime’s staff have revealed that production for the series is now cancelled.
They made the announcement of the Girlish Number Shura TV anime last year. It was supposed to be a comedy spin-off based on the 4-Koma manga of the same name. The announcement cited that they weren’t able to acquire a production staff. It also mentioned that they also had concerns about the anime’s quality if the pushed through with the planned adaptation. The staff then issued an apology for those looking forward to watch the anime.
The original anime which is set in Japan’s seiyuu industry premiered back in fall 2016. Here is its synopsis:
College student Chitose Karasuma is determined not to do boring things as she enters the adult world. To this end, this bad-mannered beauty barges into a facility that trains would-be voice actors and actresses, somehow landing a job at “Number One Produce,” a seiyuu agency managed by her older brother, Gojou. In Chitose’s mind, she’s poised for greatness, but finds herself at a loss when she continues to only get minor roles. As she clashes with other girls in the agency, including a cunning airhead and a girl with a Kansai accent, Chitose is about to learn that there’s more to succeeding in this competitive industry than she imagined.
