New Moyashimon Video Shows Fans How to Enjoy Sequel More

posted on by Egan Loo
Promo urges fans to eat fermented food, read original manga before July 5 debut

The official YouTube channel for Fuji TV's late-night Noitamina programming block began streaming a "Moyashimon Returns o 100-bai Tanoshimu Hōhō!" (How to Enjoy Moyashimon Returns 100 Times More!") promotional video on Wednesday. The video shows four ways fans can enjoy watching the Moyashimon Returns anime sequel even more:

  1. Eat fermented food every day!
  2. Read the original manga!
  3. Watch the first anime season online!
  4. Play the Net de Gachagacha Moyashimon game online!

Masayuki Ishikawa's original Moyashimon manga 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. Yuichiro Yano is returning to direct the Moyashimon Returns anime, and Natsuko Takahashi is again overseeing the scripts.

The first episode of the series had an advanced screening at the Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology on July 1, before the show's premiere on Noitamina on Thursday.

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 Yūichi Nakamura in the same block in 2010.
