News Boku, Otaryman. Manga Gets Anime DVD Green-Lit
posted on 2009-10-10 13:48 EDT
The manga author Yoshitani has announced in an Saturday blog entry that an anime DVD based on his Boku, Otaryman. (I, Otaryman.) autobiographical essay manga has been green-lit. The DVD will ship in January and will feature Mamoru Miyano as Yoshitani himself, Rie Kugimiya, and others in the cast.
The manga began as a comic on Yoshitani's web page about his life as a 28-year-old bachelor systems engineer with no girlfriend. Since he admits he is "somewhat otaku," he considers himself an "otaryman" (otaku na salaryman). Since 2007, 1 million copies have been published of the four manga volumes.

If this film causes more permanent damage than most Pokémon outings, that's wholly the fault of its main character, Keldeo.
On the whole, The Battle for Doldrey is a mixed bag of strengths and weaknesses. While that may be true of most things, there are few places where those lines are so clearly drawn as in this film.
I daresay anyone turned off by the first five episodes might want to consider slogging through the next 3 volumes or so; the relatively meaty and fun storyline seems like it might be worth the wait.
