MTV has announced a new anime inspired title.

MTV has announced a mock anime series called Kappa Mikey. The series will chronicle the struggles of a new star anime voice actor who is not exactly right for the job. It tracks the "behind the scenes" world of a fictitious Japan anime series, "LilyMu," through the eyes of voice talent Mikey. The series is from Larry Schwarz

Excerpt from Press Release:

KAPPA MIKEY - When unemployed New York actor Mikey Simon is recruited to join the cast of LilyMu, formerly Japan's hottest TV Anime series, let's just say, “the fish doesn't stick to the rice.” His co-stars can tell right away that he's the wrong guy for the job. But the viewers disagree, and suddenly, Mikey is Japan's newest superstar, rocketing LilyMu back to the top of the ratings. Kappa Mikey is the story of Mikey's epic struggles to win over his co-workers, get a clue about Japanese culture and look cool while wrestling giant robotic beetles! Kappa Mikey has adapted the Larry Sanders model to the growing pop culture of anime, giving the viewers an exclusive comedic look at the behind the scenes of a Japanese cartoon. Created by Larry Schwarz; Directed by Sergei Aniskov; Produced by Animation Collective; Executives in Charge of Development for MTV: Marian Davis and John Priemer.
