The original manga on which After School Diary is based is a club activity manga that's been serialized by Yasuyuki Kosaka in Monthly Young Champion Retsu since 2017!
It's not limited to Champion, but it's said that magazines are hard to sell nowadays. However, while I am introducing the anime, I've noticed recently that each company knows exactly where the demand is for boys' and young people's magazines. This time, an anime adaptation of After School Diary has been serialized for almost 3 years and is on sale now in volume 6. You can enjoy fishing, seafood gourmet food, and the seaside in the set of Teibou club in this story.

At the beginning of this article I talked a little bit about how girls outdoor activities are trending, but I feel that the number of women's outdoor activities stories have been increasing little by little in recent years. At the same time, I guess the number of people who are interested in the outdoors is increasing. It all began with Yuru Can△, which started the trend.
At the time of Yuru Can△, solo camping was very popular and had a big impact on people, so this work, After School Diary, might have made fishing more popular. What might happen?
If you're curious about women's outdoor animation, here's another one.
It takes place in the real Ashikita area of Kumamoto, and like From Tomorrow in the Colored World and Zombieland Saga, which are both set in the same Kyushu area, the area will be enlivened by the anime adaptation!
This is one of the anime that I'm interested in because I believe it has great potential.
If you're interested in an anime set in Kyushu, here's another one.
The director of After School Diary is Takaharu Okuma.
They've also announced the production staff for the anime version of After School Diary, which will be directed by Takaharu Okuma. I haven't introduced him yet, so here he is!
From the 2007 episode of Dojin Work to the Mitsumomoe series, Gavril Dropout, Watashi ni Tenshi ga Maiorita! and Dumbbell Nan-kiro Moteru?, he has been involved in a wide range of work including the opening credits producer, character designer, animation director, and storyboarding and direction producer.

As a director, he has directed YuruYuri Series, Renai Labo, Survival Game Club!. Himouto! Umaru-chan, and Uchi no Maid ga Uzasugiru. He has worked as an assistant director on a number of popular films, and this After School Diary is his first film as a director!
Looking back at his previous work, he has participated in a lot of anime with girls in the lead role, and he has played a part in creating all of them.
Since it's his first work, we can't help but wonder how he'll draw a manga with fishing, gourmet and many other elements!
The composition of the After School Diary series is by Fumihiko Shimo
Another person I'm interested in from the production staff of After School Diary is series creator Fumihiko Shimo. I hadn't introduced him to you yet, so here he is!
He started his career as a scriptwriter for Grave of the Fireflies which was released in 1988. The next year, in 1989, he started working as a scriptwriter, and he has worked on the screenplays of Wrestler Gundan (Ginga-hen) Seisenshi Robin Jr., Doraemon, and Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid, among others.
As for the series, he has worked on Chouzyushin Gravion, AIR, CLANNAD, NEW GAME series, Ryoo no Oshiogoto! and Dumbbell Nan-kiro Moteru?. These are just some of the popular works that anime fans will instantly recognize, and he's truly a hit maker.

Just like the director, Mr. Okuma, he has participated in many works that depict the lively daily life of girl characters, and as mentioned before, all of them have been very popular. After School Diary is going to be another popular anime that I am very much looking forward to.
