Last Monday, Kadokawa announced that Police in a Pod a comedy manga (Hakozume: Kōban Joshi no Gyakushū) by Miko Yasu will be animated next year.
A trailer has also been released alongside with the announcement:
Manga artist Miko Yasu celebrated the great news by uploading an illustration:
Police in a Pod is a comedy manga that centers on Mai Kawai, a female police officer who already had enough of the job she is not even into and is in the verge of passing her resignation letter. Yet, when she met her station’s new female director, it seems that the time Kawai has spent with the gorgeous role model made realize that maybe she isn’t really done being an officer.
The cast has also been announced with Shion Wakayama (Minami Yume of SSSS.DYNAZENON and Azura of Dr. Stone) as Kawai Mai and Yui Ishikawa (Violet of Violet Evergarden and Mikasa Ackerman of Attack on Titan) will be playing Fuji Seiko.
Police in a Pod anime will be directed by Yuzu Sato (The Gokusen, Kaiji) at Madhouse while Ryunosuke Kingetsu (Ninja Nonsense, Samurai Girls) will be in charged of the series’ scripts and Kei Tsuchiya (Laidbackers, Shōnen Hollywood – Holly Stage for 49) will be designing the characters.
In November 2017, Yasu Miko launched Police in a Pod under Kodansha’s Morning magazine and it has published the manga’s 17th compiled book volumes back in June this year and has 2.3 million copies circulating as of today. Last year, the manga was nominated for the 66th Shogakukan Manga Awards and in this year;s 45th Annual Kodansha Manga Awards. It has also ranked 22nd on Da Vinci Magazine’s most recent manga ranking for “Book of the Year”.
A live-action television series for the manga has premiered last July 7 this year as well.
Seems like good animes are starting to fill up every watcher’s 2022 list this early.
