A quick head's up for all you fans of romantic comedy and corporate culture: Funimation has acquired the license to My Senpai is Annoying (known in Japan as Senpai ga Uzai Kouhai no Hanashi), an upcoming TV anime based on the office romcom manga by Shiromanta about a tiny office lady who develops mixed feelings for her brash and over-bearing senior at work.
The original My Senpai is Annoying web comic is serialized in Pixiv's comic POOL digital manga magazine, and an English language version is also published in print by Seven Seas Entertainment, who describe the story of the series as follows:
Igarashi is a hardworking young office lady. Takeda, the senpai above her at work, annoys her constantly–and yet she finds herself growing closer to him. Every day is filled with comic mishaps and romantic moments as Igarashi tries to balance work, life, and love.
The My Senpai is Annoying TV anime is directed by Ryota Ito and features animation production by Doga Kobo. The series is scheduled to begin broadcasting in Japan on TOKYO MX and BS11 beginning on October 09, 2021, with additional broadcasts to follow later on Tochigi TV, Hokkaido Television Broadcasting, Animax, and TUF TV-U Fukushima.
My Senpai is Annoying will also stream in the United States via Funimation as part of their fall 2021 anime simulcast lineup beginning on October 09, 2021.
