KyoAni works on “Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid” anime project

NEWS – Two weeks ago, Kyoto Animation uploaded a video teaser for their upcoming anime project, “Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid.” The series is expected to air on January 11, 2017.

The series will be adapted from Kyoushinsha Cool’s “Miss Kobayashi’s Maid Dragon.” The North American publisher, Seven Seas Entertainment, describes the story as:

Miss Kobayashi is your average office worker who lives a boring life, alone in her small apartment–until she saves the life of a female dragon in distress. The dragon, named Tohru, has the ability to magically transform into an adorable human girl (albeit with horns and a long tail!), who will do anything to pay off her debt of gratitude, whether Miss Kobayashi likes it or not. With a very persistent and amorous dragon as a roommate, nothing comes easy, and Miss Kobayashi’s normal life is about to go off the deep end!
