Polar Bear Cafe Anime Gets Short 10 Episode Web Series to Celebrate 10th Anniversary
The coffee is brewing in the Polar Bear Cafe and it’s time to put up your feet cause more of the series is coming to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the TV anime, which was inspired by the manga Shirokuma Cafe by Aloha Higa. While a new anime isn’t brewing for the series, instead we’ll be getting ten short pieces of content that feature Polar Bear, Panda and Penguin in their paper craft forms.
The first episode has already been released on the Animate Times YouTube channel, with more episodes to be released every Wednesday at 6 PM Japan time.
These Polar Bear Cafe shorts will see the first five episodes released on the above YouTube channel while the final five will come out on the Animate Times Amazon Prime channel. Takahiro Sakurai, Jun Fukuyama and Hiroshi Kamiya all return to voice Polar Bear, Panda and Penguin respectively, speaking lines written by Toru Hosokawa, who wrote the series composition for the original series.
