The official website for Yūki Yūna wa Yūsha de Aru Churutto!, a short anime based on the Yūki Yūna wa Yūsha de Aru Hanayui no Kirameki (Yuki Yuna Is a Hero: A Sparkling Bouquet) smartphone game, revealed on Tuesday that the anime will premiere on April 9 at “about 25:50” (effectively, April 10 at 1:50 a.m.) on the “Super Animeism” programming block on MBS, TBS, and their affiliates. The anime will also run on AT-X.
Project 2H is credited with the original work, and Takahiro is credited with the original draft. Seiya Miiyajima (BanG Dream! Girls Band Party!
