Oooh, some really neat people have worked on this. I really like "Tatami Galaxy" and I'm interested in seeing what other ideas the author has to offer!

Already mega-pumped for this. I absolutely loved The Tatami Galaxy, so I'm curious to see what this has in store.

Sakurai Takahiro's character should be name Yasaburou, since the name has the kanji for three to indicate third oldest child.

I just hope they hire a different character designer. It seems all their works look like they are done by Kanami Sekiguchi. It is how Kyoto animation's characters look like Yukiko Horiguchi's K-ON style.

Hell, this looks quite interesting and hopefully for some good laughs (in a good way). I need one of those lately.

although i realy don't trust PA works, haven't liked any of thier anime ever, still looking forward to this, this guy's novels are realy great, and the tatami galaxy is one of my favourite animes ever. It would have been realy nice to see masaaki yuasa direct this again, and a realy shame they didn't have Yusuke nakamura do character designs, koji kumeta is a pretty good replacement.

Premise sounds interesting but I'll be watching for the character designs. I just like Kôji Kumeta's style. Also...

Same here. What's more...

Quote:
Kôji Kumeta (Sayonara, Zetsubou-Sensei, Joshiraku) is providing the original character designs for Uchōten Kazoku — the first time he has done so for a project not based on one of his manga.


...That strikes me as special, and since I've enjoyed the lunacy of SZS and the lavishly animated works by P.A. so far I can't imagine passing this up. (Still hoping they'll animate that competitive swimming series, too...)

No Masaaki Yuasa? Well, my expectations are now lowered five-fold.

Wouldn't this be just their second actual novel adaptation after Another? I really can't think of another (no pun intended).

If the lead artist from Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei wanted to draw Miyanaga Saki (from the Saki manga/anime), pretty sure she would look a lot like the girl in the middle of that picture.
