Main staff announced for adaptation of Kaori Hanzawa's 4-panel comic about lady manga artists
Manga creation is serious business in a new trailer for Comic Girls, an upcoming TV anime based on the 4-panel manga by Kaori Hanzawa about a quartet of lady manga artists who share a common living space.
The main staff for Comic Girls was also announced, including:
- Director: Yoshinobu Tokumoto
- Series composition: Natsuko Takahashi
- Screenplays: Touko Machida, Michiko Yokote, Jukki Hanada
- Character design: Yoshiko Saitou
- Animation production: Nexus

The original Comic Girls manga is serialized in Houbunsha's Manga Time Kirara Max seinen manga magazine. The story follows Kaoruko Moeta, a 15-year-old high school student who makes yonkoma manga under the pen name of "Chaos". After a reader survey ranks Kaoruko at rock bottom, her editor recommends a transfer to an all-female manga creator dorm, where Kaoruko lives and commiserates with fellow mangaka Koyume Koizuka (a shojo manga artist), Ruki Irokawa (an ecchi manga artist), and Tsubasa Katsuki (a shonen manga artist).
