This year has seen a Jōhōshori-bu reunion with Rumi Ōkubo's Yuzuko Nonohara, Minami Tsuda's Yui Ichii and Risa Taneda's Yukari Hinata reprising their roles from 2013's adaptation of Komata Mikami's comedy four-panel manga Yuyushiki with character song CDs released in February, March and April. 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. With this, they previewed the art for the first disc, "Yuyushiki 'Nigenme' Yuzuko Nonohara Hen," coming February 4th. Get a look after the jump.

Sorry, no news of a second season of Yuyushiki anime, but Rumi Ōkubo's Yuzuko Nonohara, Minami Tsuda's Yui Ichii and Risa Taneda's Yukari Hinata are re-forming the Jōhōshori-bu for a new Data Processing Club min-album. "Yuyushiki 'Nigenme' Yuzuko Nonohara Hen" is coming from Exit Tunes on February 4th, 2015 with special alternate jackets and B2 posters to promote it. More after the jump.
Yuyushiki's Yuzuko Nonohara is one of those characters who was retrofitted with the same birthday as her voice actress. So, manga author Komata Mikami took the opportunity to sketch out a cute celebration of Rumi Ōkubo's 25th birthday.Get a look after the jump.
Following Tuesday's Megumi Han birthday, a second Yuyushiki cast member has turned 25 years old, and again, manga artist Komata Mikami has sketched a special message. This time, it's Yui Ichii voice actress Minami Tsuda. Get a look after the jump.
She's Hunter x Hunter's Gon Freecss. She's HappinessCharge PreCure!'s Hime Shirayuki/Cure Princess. But, to Yuyushiki manga artist Komata Mikami, Megumi Han will always be the possessive classmate Kei Okano. In honor of Ms Han's June 3rd, 25th birthday, a special sketch was Tweeted.

Good news anitwitter folks. Witch Craft Works posted a set of SD Twitter icons. Kill La Kill found a reason to post a new set of four. And, in honor of the 3/27 general release of the Yuyushiki "If you want to be happy, be" drama CD, the series site got up to 327 icons. Grab them after the jump.
While there's no sign of a follow-up to the spring 2013 anime, lately, there's been a little activity on the Yuyushiki front. The "If you want to be happy, be" drama CD from December's Comiket 85 will be made generally available on March 27th. Beyond that, the series site has posted a special illustration for Yuzuko's March 24th birthday. Get a look after the jump.
Sadly the Yuyushiki anime wraps up today, and the official @yuyushiki_anime Twitter feed is already feeling a bit nostalgic. The series is being sent off with an illustration of topless Yukari that it's been keeping under consideration. Well, technically, the outfit is described as a summer tomboy look. Check it out after the jump.
A second Yuyushiki Blu-ray and a fan book are out in Japan today. To promote the goodies, cast members Rumi Ookubo, Minami Tsuda and Risa Taneda presented their illustrations of their characters.

Back on May 22, the official Twitter feed for the Yuyushiki schoolgirl comedy anime posted a picture of homeroom teacher "Mom" in a school uniform, along with the promise that they'd have sometime special when they reached 5,000 followers. Today they hit the mark and rewarded fans with a special idol Aikawa illustration. Get a look after the jump.
Signs point to the anime Yuyushiki being well received in Japan as well as in English speaking territories. Still, I suspect that the official Twitter account might be jumping the gun a bit in making a big deal out of the four-panel comedy straight-person Yui Ichii's birthday. Either way, let's have some fun with what they've posted. Check it out after the jump.
