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.
