Nanamori-chu Goraku-bu (The Nanamori Middle School Amusement Club) was formed by the four main voice actresses of the Yuruyuri anime series: Shiori Mikami (Akari Akaza), Yuka Ohtsubo (Kyoko Toshino), Minami Tsuda (Yui Funami), and Rumi Ohkubo (Chinatsu Yoshikawa), to perform its themes songs in 2011.

As the fans know, September 7 was the birthday of Sakurako Ohmuro, one of the main characters of Namori's yuri comedy manga series Yuruyuri. To celebrate it, the author posted a special art of her receiving a birthday present from the protagonist Akari Akaza on her official Twitter yesterday. Happy birthday, Sakurako-chan!
Neither controversy nor a brain hemorrhage could stop Eri Takenashi from completing the story of Kannagi: Crazy Shrine Maidens. The manga ended in Comic Rex, then in its 12th and final volume at the end of July. One of the send-offs/thank-yous came from Yuruyuri's Namori. Get a look after the jump.
YuruYuri manga author Namori is as busy as ever. Volume 15 of the series was recently released, and its limited edition had a pack-in bonus booklet of new Ayano prequel stories. She also did work for the Kemono Friends official anthology and Etrian Odyssey 10th anniversary book. Still, she knows a cute girl when she sees one and couldn't let the Eromanga-sensei anime pass without a tribute to heroine Sagiri Izumi.
Manga author Namori (YuruYuri, Ohmuroke) recently offered up a Christmas gift to her fans on Twitter with an original piece of artwork featuring student council members Chitose Ikeda and Ayano Sugiura dressed in seasonal outfits as Santa's elves. Hit the jump to check it out.
If what she posts to Twitter is any indication, despite an impressive work pace, Namori, aka ELEGY SYNDROME, apparently finds times for gaming. And, if her posts to Twitter are any indication, a couple games she's looking forward to are Pokemon Sun/Moon and Persona 5. This week, she posted the protagonist of the former and Phantom Thieves of Hearts navigator Futaba Sakura from the latter.
Today, Yuruyuri's resident pest, Sakurako Ohmuro, got some love in honor of her birthday. Come on, she might annoy the rest of the Ohmoro house and frienemy Himawari, but if you compare her to some of the other characters on Emiri Katō's resume, like Kyubey, she's not that bad. As the tradition as developed, the birthday was honored with latte art, which manga author Namori paid homage to in kind. Get a look after the jump.
