Anime adaptation based on gag manga by Odeko Fuji follows the exploits of a 5 year old company president
It's never business as usual when your company president is a 5 year old girl, and now a new key visual (below) and two new cast members have been revealed for Youjo Shachou ("Little Girl President"), an upcoming anime adaptation based on the 4-panel gag manga by Odeko Fujii that explores that strange premise. The new cast members include:
- Chinami Hashimoto as Riya Motohashi.
- And Aoi Koga as Nowani.
Serialized on KADOKAWA's ComicWalker website, Youjo Shachou follows the adventures of Najimu Mujina, the 5 year old president of the Mujina Company. Najimu isn't a genius or a person reincarnated in a child's body, she's just an ordinary 5 year old girl, and so everything business-related (mixers, contracts, golfing with clients) is new and exciting for her. With the help of an overly indulgent secretary, an unidentified office clerk, and a company employee who plays the role of straight-man, Najimu navigates the rough seas of the business world.
The Youjo Shachou anime adaptation is directed by Kazuya Iwata and features animation production by project No. 9. The release window and format for the series have not yet been revealed.
