The official website of the You Are Umasou (Omae Umasou da na) anime film has announced that a television series version, Miyanishi Tatsuya Gekijō: Omae Umasou da na, will also premiere on October 4 on TV Tokyo. Both projects adapt Tatsuya Miyanishi's popular picture book about a Tyrannosaurus who comes across an Ankylosaurus baby all by himself and says, "Gaō! Omae Umasou Dana" ("Rawr! You look delicious.") However, the Tyrannosaurus ends up adopting the baby as his own.
The television series will run a five-minute short every weekday at 6:40 a.m. 1.5 million copies of the book have been published so far, and the film version (pictured above) will open in Japan on October 16.
