Tonkatsu DJ Agetarou Slated to Air in April

posted on by Jabulani Blyden

The official website for the anime of author Iipyao and artist Yūjirō Koyama's Tonkatsu DJ Agetarō confirmed the show's April air date.

Akitarō Daichi (Sexy Commando Gaiden: Sugoi yo!! Masaru-san, Fruits Basket) is directing the anime at Studio DEEN (Fate/stay night, Reikenzan: Hoshikuzu-tachi no Utage, Umineko - When They Cry). Daisuke Fujiwara of MU-STARS will produce the music.

The gag manga follows Agetarō Katsumata, a stupid but honest guy whose family has run a tonkatsu (breaded pork cutlet) restaurant for three generations. He's also a beginner club DJ.

The manga series began weekly serialization in Shueisha's Shonen Jump+ app in November 2014. Shortly after it debuted, a panel from the comic went viral. The panel, pictured below, features the main character having an epiphany that "tonkatsu cooks and DJs are the same" and makes a pun on "flyer" (for an event) and "fryer" (at a restaurant).

The manga also began monthly serialization in Shueisha's Men's Non No fashion magazine. Shueisha will publish the third compiled volume on August 4.
