The Moyashimon story follows a college student who discovers that he can see and communicate with the germs all around him — germs that appear as super-deformed characters. Yuichiro Yano is returning to direct the series and Natsuko Takahashi is again in charge of the series composition.
The first episode of the series will have an advanced screening at the Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology on July 1, before the show's premiere on the late-night Noitamina programming block on July 5.
The manga has been running in Kodansha's Evening magazine since 2004. Del Rey licensed the manga and released two volumes before Kodansha Comics USA took over Del Rey's titles in 2010. The first television anime series aired in Noitamina in 2007, followed by a live-action adaptation with lead actor Yūichi Nakamura in the same block in 2010.
