A pair of sisters from the Manga Time Kirara family were the focus of a class reunion event at this weekend's AnimeJapan, and for once, Yuyushiki wasn't left out of the fun!

Plans for the reunion of the Data Process Club and friends from 2013's TV anime adaptation of Komata Mikami's Yuyushiki comedy manga have been announced. Rumi Ōkubo (Yuzuko), Minami Tsuda (Yui), Risa Taneda (Yukari), Megumi Han (Kei), Mana Shimizu (Fumi) and Ai Kayano (Chiho) are among the planned performers at the March 27th Tokyo International Exchange Center event.
Yuyushiki is back, at least in a limited fashion. A new, limited Blu-ray box is out in Japan November 27th.

And fans still remember the trio fondly (or are still reading the manga), as social media lit up with celebrations of Yuzuko's March 24th birthday.
Yuyushiki's admittedly modest Christmas gift is the launch of a Twitter account for the upcoming set of mini-albums featuring the Jōhōshori-bu reunion with Rumi Ōkubo's Yuzuko Nonohara, Minami Tsuda's Yui Ichii and Risa Taneda's Yukari Hinata.
