Tesagure! Bukatsu-mono (てさぐれ!部活もの) is a Japanese anime television series. The series is animated using the program MikuMikuDance.[1] The series began airing on NTV on October 2013.[2] A second season titled Tesagure! Bukatsu-mono Encore (てさぐれ!部活もの あんこーる) aired from January 12, 2014.[3] A manga illustrated by Kotora Suzune is published online on Manga Life Win by Takeshobo.[3] The third season is a collaboration with Ryū Jikō and Kidani L's manga Minarai Megami: Puru Purun Charm, which is published in Monthly Shōnen Sirius, and titled Tesagure! Bukatsumono Spin-off Purupurun Sharumu to Asobou (てさぐれ!部活もの すぴんおふ プルプルんシャルムと遊ぼう). Instead of each episode being 15 minutes as with the previous two seasons, the length of each episode is 30 minutes long to match the format of most TV anime.[4]
