Mr. Osomatsu TV Anime Special Collaboration With JRA Airs on December 12

posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins

The staff of the Mr. Osomatsu franchise announced on Sunday that the all-new television anime special for the franchise will air in Japan on December 12 at 25:00 (effectively December 13 at 1:00 a.m.) on TV Tokyo. The special will be a half hour long.

The special is part of a larger "Hashire! Oumatsu-san" collaboration between Mr. Osomatsu and the Japan Racing Association. The collaboration also includes a series of six new anime shorts titled "Mutsugo to Ouma no Monogatari" (The Story of the Sextuplets and a Horse). The fourth episode in the shorts will debut on November 10.

The upcoming television anime special will also stream on the campaign's website on December 13 at 11:00 a.m. JST and on dTV on December 16 at noon JST.

The collaboration also includes merchandise that the Japan Racing Association will offer at events at the Tokyo Racecourse from October 30 to November 27, and at the Nakayama Racecourse from December 3 to 18.

The Mr. Osomatsu anime series premiered in October 2015, and Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired in Japan. Animation director Kanchi Suzuki posted in September that he is interested in working on a hypothetical second season for the show.
