The manga Lucifer and Biscuit Hammer by Satoshi Mizukami is said to have a TV anime adaptation in the making. The news was released by the manga creator himself on his Twitter account.
The anime adaption is said to premiere this coming summer and will feature the entire storyline of the manga. Author Mizukami mentioned that he would be finishing the manga’s story soon.
Mizukami tweeted the news alongside an illustration of the protagonists Yuuhi and Samidare. Check out the announcement illustration below:
The manga currently has ten volumes in circulation. Its original run was from April 2005 until November 2010. Shōnen Gahōsha published the Japanese version, while Seven Seas Entertainment published the English counterpart in North America.
The Lucifer and Biscuit Hammer, known in Japan as Hoshi no Samidare, centers on the ordinary college student Asamiya Yuuhi. The series is an adventure fantasy manga with a lot of comedic scenes. On a typical day, our protagonist Yuuhi is woken up by a talking lizard that tells him he has been chosen to save the world from a looming attack.
Even before ordinary Yuuhi can resist the ludicrous request of the lizard, he’s given a ring and supernatural abilities. Yuuhi is then joined by her neighbor Samidare, who has a lot of secrets up her sleeves.
More information regarding the upcoming anime will be released in the following days. Stay tuned for the latest news by following author Satoshi Mizukami’s official Twitter account!
