The official website and blog of the Tono to Issho anime franchise has announced on Thursday that the fifth volume of Ohba-Kai's original 4-panel gag manga will bundle a new anime DVD "volume 1.5" on August 23. The manga follows the humorous exploits of generals during Japan's tumultuous sengoku (Era of the Warring States) period. The anime DVD's voice cast remains largely unchanged from the one used in the previous drama CD, but the character Honda Tadakatsu (pictured at right, played by Raikō Sakamoto) will debut on the anime DVD.
A video anime adaptation had already shipped in March, and the official website has also announced that a television anime series adaptation will premiere in July. Mankyū is directing, scripting, and storyboarding the "volume 1.5" anime DVD, just as he did for the earlier video anime. FrontierWorks is producing the music, and Gathering is producing the animation.
