Portraying the growth of three new face voice actresses
The Four-Frame Comic of this work is now being serialized in formula web site of the coterie “Hajimemasite” by Mr. Hata and Ms. Asano.
While anime or comic works which describes the backstage of various industries in are popular, it will become a work attracting further attention.
Writer’s Note: Based on a “dojinshi”
This event is epoch-making from the perspective of that a private comic is made into TV anime series. I used the name “private comic” here, this means self-published works originally called “dojinshi” in Japanese. Various activities of dojinshi is very popular in Japan, and its festival “Comic market” is even said to be the event that the most people gather for in Japan.
However, as referred in “Why cannot a sequel be made unless the discs sell?“, the decision to produce of anime needs a prospect of commercially success. Therefore, it is better that the original work is originally popular and famous, and moreover, it is advantageous if it is the work of a major publishing company because that company invests in the production (Actually, the royalty for the original work does not account for a great ratio in overall produce cost).
Even though the authors are famous from the start, this is an exceptional case to carry out making a dojinshi into a TV anime despite of those tendencies.
