In Japan, schools run in trimesters, with summer break running about 20 days from the third week of July through the end of August. So, today is a likely first Monday of summer vacation, making the the perfect date to celebrate (or choose to skip celebrating) the titular hero of Tanaka-kun Is Always Listless. Join in (or don't) after the jump.
Happy birthday to My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU's Yui Yuigahama. As with other cast birthdays, TBS' Animaru store is celebrating with a special offering of tribute goods.

April 22nd was the birthday of YuruYuri voice of reason Yui Funami. The series' anime account paid tribute with an icon and their was latte art and the like. So, on the following day, manga artist Namori responded with a bit of thank you art from the crew's good girl. Get a look after the jump.
After drawing some Inkling love back in February, Yuruyuri author Namori this week returned to the subject this week. And, speaking of Splatoon fans, Squid Girl author Masahiro Anbe has evidently been doing a bit of travelling since that series wrapped up, with photos being shared on Twitter. He also treated fans to a tribute to KonoSuba's Aqua. Get a look after the jump.
Mark March 28th in your calendar and make sure not to forget in the future because it's the birthday of the crucially important star of YuruYuri, Toshino Kyoko!
Japan got a bit of snow this week, and that was enough to inspire some art from the YuruYuri artist Namori. She then got tired, and that took her art in a bit of a hotter direction. Fairy Tail author Hiro Mashima (now a verified account on Twitter!) similarly expressed a bit of exhaustion with some extra work. Get a look after the jump.
Can love bloom on the Splat Zone? Yuruyuri author Namori put aside DraQue for a bit to explore the subject in a pair of Splatoon tribute sketches. Get a look after the jump.
Besides YuruYuri, spin-off Oomuroke, and assorted other projects, manga author Namori is at least an occasional gamer. The Dragon Quest Builders sandbox RPG is her latest diversion, and she's posted a sketch of her female hero.
Marine Entertainment has posted a short version music video for "Ao no Refrain," the latest song of 26-year-old anime voice actress Minami Tsuda, best known as Yui Funami in the YuruYuri anime series.

To promote the live-broadcast program "YuruYuri San Hai! What will We do on Christmas this year?" on Nico Nico Live tonight, the YuruYuri manga author Namori provides a Christmas-themed illustration featuring the four main girls on the anime's official Twitter. Check the cute art after the jump.
YuruYuri has a game out from Sega this week (crossover rhythm game Miracle Girls Festival). Sega's Yakuza/ Ryū ga Gotoku series is celebrating its 10th anniversary and prepring for next year's #6. So, of course it makes sense for the two to celebrate together! Surprising/wowing fans, this week's Famitsu featured a strange tribute of the latter from Namori, author of the former. Get a look after the jump.
After causing something of a social media sensation, the "I Am Aho" (I'm stupid) t-shirt seen in the YuruYuri San Hai! anime is becoming reality!

Along with this will be Amusement Ckub single "Little Love Song," offered with limited autograph reproduction.
Yuyushiki is back, at least in a limited fashion. A new, limited Blu-ray box is out in Japan November 27th. Along with the release is the announcement that the Data Processing Club cast will be reuniting for an event in March, 2016. Fitting, especially since two of the three Data Processing are also members of the Amusement Club, YuruYuri author Namori celebrated the release with tribute sketches.
