‘The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-chan’ Anime Website Launches

News Anime News

The website for the official anime adaptation of Puyo’s spin-off manga The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-chan is now live, and can be viewed here. It began as a manga spin-off of Nagaru Tanigawa’s novel The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya, the fourth novel in the The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya series. There are also two other parody spin-off manga series that also received an anime adaptation: The Melancholy of Haruhi-chan Suzumiya by Puyo and Nyoron☆Churuya-san by Eretto.

All official and spin-off anime titles produced prior to now were dubbed and subtitled into English and released on DVD by Bandai Entertainment USA. Since the company no longer exists, there are no guarantees that the series will receive an English release and with the same dub cast. The original Japanese voice-cast is confirmed to be returning for this adaptation.

The character designs, based on the original ones by Noizi Ito, are featured below.

    August of last year Funimation announced they had purchased the license to The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya TV series, so I’d guess they’d (at some point) get license to Yuki-chan as well?

      They have the US rights to both spinoff series as well, so it is a possibility. FUNimation has not actually done anything with their license of the series though, so whether or not it gets licensed will depend on how well the existing spinoffs sell, if they even get a new release in the US. It is worth noting that Bandai Entertainment USA’s release can still be purchased brand-new at slightly less than the SRP on Amazon.

      The new spinoff will premiere on April 3, so we should know by then what will happen regarding an official English release of it. Even if it does not get released officially in the West, it will still quite likely receive an English-subtitled home video release in Japan.
