The anime will be a sequel the Yuki Yuna Is a Hero television anime, and will also adapt author Takahiro and illustrator BUNBUN’s illustrated novel series Washio Sumi wa Yūsha de Aru (Washio Sumi is a Hero).
The anime’s first half (six episodes) will be the adaptation of Washio Sumi wa Yūsha de Aru titled Yūki Yūna wa Yūsha de Aru: Washio Sumi no Shō (Yuki Yuna Is a Hero: Washio Sumi Chapter). The anime will first have theatrical screenings in March 2017 before the anime airs on television.

The official website for the anime had teased in June that MinatoSoft’s “Minato Damashii” event celebrating the company’s 10th anniversary will have two announcements related to the Yuki Yuna Is a Hero franchise. The event took place on Sunday. MinatoSoft developed two short PC visual novels based on the Yuki Yuna Is a Hero anime, which were bundled with the the first and sixth Japanese home video volumes of the anime in December 2014 and May 2015, respectively.
The event also announced a series of character songs, serialization on a new illustrated novel titled Nogi Sonoko wa Yūsha de Aru, and a new live event to be held in the future.
The first anime’s story takes place in the era of the gods, year 300. Yūna Yūki lives an ordinary life as a second year middle school student, but she’s also a member of the “Hero Club,” where club activities involve dealing with a mysterious being called “Vertex.”
The 12-episode anime series premiered in October 2014, and Crunchyroll streamed the anime as it aired in Japan. Ponycan USAreleased the anime in three Blu-ray Disc/DVD combo packs in North America in 2015.
Summary: A Washio Sumi is a Hero anime adaptation and a Yuki Yuna is a Hero anime season 2 was announced today at the Minatosoft 10th anniversary event. The WaSuYu anime will be entitled Yuki Yuna is a Hero: Washio Sumi Chapter and will comprise 6 episodes of S2, the second half of which will be the Yuki Yuna sequel, Yuki Yuna is a Hero: Hero Chapter. The Washio Sumi anime will be released in cinemas in March 2017, and then aired on TV later (at an unknown date) along with the Yuki Yuna sequel.

This month’s Monthly Asuka issue came out just now and here I am again with news for all of you:
Chapter 59 came out in this issue (I’m not going to show you the whole cover because there are spoilers of chapters 57 and 58 in it but I’ll show you the part that has the chapter number)
The downside (and I guess we were all expecting it already) is: Uraboku isn’t listed in the “coming in the next issue” section nor does the end of the chapter state a date for the next chapter. So, now we’ve got one new chapter but we’re clueless about when chapter 60 will be out.
I’m gonna keep an eye in future issues from this magazine (because I read a few other manga series from it besides Uraboku, so I’m gonna keep buying it) and I’ll let you know anything if there’s news on Uraboku. If I don’t tell you anything next month, that means there’s nothing new on Uraboku. I’d like to remind you that the past volumes have had 4 chapters so far and there are 3 new chapters that were not included on volume 12, so it’s very likely that the release of volume 13 will be announced once chapter 60 comes out.
