Poco's Udon World Anime Is Available to Purchase on Amazon

posted on by Jennifer Sherman

Amazon is now offering the television anime adaptation of Nodoka Shinomaru's Udon no Kuni no Kiniro Kemari (Poco's Udon World) manga for purchase in the United States. The 12-episode series is available digitally in Japanese with English subtitles.

The anime premiered in 2016, and Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired. Seiki Takuno (Sekkō Boys, Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches) directed the anime at LIDEN FILMS.

The manga will end with its 12th compiled book volume, which is slated to ship in March 2019. Shinomaru launched the manga in Shinchosha's Comic Bunch magazine in 2012.

The series follows Sōta Tawara, a 30-year-old man who was the son of an udon shop owner who has passed away. Sōta goes back to his hometown, but finds a strange lost child inside his father's old shop. As Sōta is taking care of him, the child, named Poco, suddenly grows ears and a tail. The manga follows the human Sōta and the tanuki Poco as they start to live together, meet and connect with others, and grow.
