Ontama! Begins Streaming on Japan's Nico Nico Douga

posted on by Egan Loo
Noboru Maeda, Dan Yoshii's story about schoolgirl meeting real father in past

The Nico Nico Douga website has begun streaming the first 11-minute episode in the animated adaptation of Noboru Maeda ("Hurricanes") and Dan Yoshii's Ontama! manga on Friday. (Nico Nico Douga requires viewers to register in Japanese.) "Hurricanes" Maeda is a comedian who voiced characters in the Onegai My Melody television anime series and the Netrun-mon the Movie anime video.

The manga's story centers around Ichigo, a fourth-grade girl who lives with her gentle-hearted mother and stepfather. Worried about the discord between her parents, she wishes "to meet my real father!" and she is suddenly transported before her real father in the past. Now, she — and her obligatory mascot — try to keep her real father and mother together while building friendships in school. This "parallel family" manga ran in Wani Books' Comic Gum magazine until this year's June issue, and the second and final compiled book volume was published in June.
