An mpreg J-drama. Can't say I was expecting to see this during my lifetime.

Hopefully, it fares better than the Y: The Last Man adaptation.

Is this similar to omegaverse? I'm curious to know how men in this world get pregnant.

Men can get pregnant?!? Well, I'd watched this Youtube video from @PragerU which is a conservative channel that talks about if a man could get pregnant. And the answer would be obviously, no.

But there are some form of technologies that could be an alternative way to get pregnant without having a sexual intercourse like artificial womb and robotic sperm. Search those two from Wikipedia and Google for more info and it might become a reality in the future. This would be a wet dreams for the feminists just like a main antagonist from the manga/anime (hope it won't be cancelled just like Y: The Last Man) series, World's End Harem.

I skimmed the first few pages of the manga and it sort of glosses over the actual logistics. It only says that the chance of a man getting pregnant is 1/10th that of a woman and that men don't have birth canals (so all births have to be by c section). No dynamics and no going into heat.

Honestly it seems kinda... nice in the way it's handled? It doesn't feel fetishy at all

That's good. The alternative process could be... very horrifying.

Gross. Of course Netflix would fund this.

And I'm not even surprised that there are even HAD trans employees on Netflix until they'd got fired for their demand on cancelling a controversial Netflix series from a comedian by the name of Dave Chappel. Laughing

Anyone else getting Junior vibes from this?
When I first saw the poster there, my mind went back to 1994's movie staring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito, where Arnold got pregnant. Fun movie.

I look forward to this one.

I read the manga, it’s actually pretty good. It doesn’t explain the “how” and it’s definitely not Omegaverse. The point is to explore the social dynamics of pregnancy at work through different anecdotes in a world in which cis men can get pregnant. I’m wondering how they’ll tie the anecdotes together and if they’ll include more romance, since the MC is single in the manga (probably).
