The official site for the anime adaptation of the 2011 manga series Wakako-Zake did a lot of updates recently where we got the casting news of Miyuki Sawashiro taking on the lead role. The twelve episode run that airs as three minute shorts will begin on July 5th ant 10:27pm JST and now the first TV Spot for it has arrived. That piece has Sawashiro narrating it, which definitely helps to set the tone in addition to the animation itself. The serise is directed by Minoru Yamaoka at DCI while Yoshishige Kosako is handling the character designs.
The manga comes from Chie Shinkyu and there’s not a lot of material out there overall for it with just four volumes so far.
Plot concept: Murasaki Wakako, who is 26 years old, loves going out alone to enjoy eating and drinking, especially when something unpleasant happens at work. This manga follows Wakako through many solitary outings, where she enjoys different combinations of food and drink!
