News Moyashimon Returns to TV in New Anime This July
posted on 2012-03-22 21:21 EDT
Another television anime adaptation of Masayuki Ishikawa's Moyashimon: Tales of Agriculture manga has been green-lit under the title Moyashimon Returns. The new anime will premiere in Fuji TV's late-night programming block Noitamina on Thursdays this July.
The Moyashimon story follows a college student who discovers that he can see and communicate with the germs all around him — germs that appear as super-deformed characters.
The manga has been running in Kodansha's Evening magazine since 2004. Del Rey licensed the manga and released two volumes before Kodansha Comics USA took over Del Rey's titles in 2010. The first television anime series aired in Noitamina in 2007, followed by a live-action adaptation with lead actor Yuichi Nakamura in the same block in 2010.
The regular and limited edition of the 11th Moyashimon manga volume shipped on Friday. The limited edition comes with a full-color, 136-page "Moyashibon" book with illustrations, designs, interviews, unused layouts, and other materials.
