The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-chan Anime Adaptation in the Works

The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-chan is a spin-off manga by Puyo that is set in the alternate universe explored in The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya. It is published in English by Yen Press.
Other than that an anime is indeed happening, not much else is known (although I would be very surprised if Kyoto Animation wasn’t the studio animating it). Hopefully it won’t be much longer until we know more!
