The upcoming short anime Yuki Yuna is a Hero Churutto! (aka Yūki Yūna wa Yūsha de Aru Churutto!) has a premiere date. That date is April in Japan, with the anime set to air on MBS and TBS on Saturdays.

The anime short follows on from the Yuki Yuna is a Hero TV anime, which was released in October, 2014, with the series’ second season arriving in October, 2017.
The original series tells the story of Yūna Yūki, a middle school student and a member of the school’s ‘Hero Club’.
Soon after she joins the club, she finds herself and the other members transported into a strange alternate dimension where they must fight mysterious enemies called Vertex in order to save their own world.
Yuki Yuna is a Hero Churutto! is based on the popular Yūki Yūna wa Yūsha de Aru Hanayui no Kirameki (aka Yuki Yuna Is a Hero: A Sparkling Bouquet) smartphone game.
A new graphic showing off the Yuki Yuna is a Hero Churutto! anime character designs has also been released on the series’ official website.
