Super Radical Gag Family Sequel Manga Gets New TV Anime
posted on by Egan Loo
This year's 10th issue of Akita Shoten's Weekly Shōnen Champion magazine is announcing on Thursday that a television anime adaptation of Kenji Hamaoka's comedy manga Maido! Urayasu Tekkin Kazoku has been green-lit. The slapstick gag comedy follows a second-grade boy named Kotetsu Ōsawagi and his misadventures with his family and friends in Urayasu City, near Tokyo.
Hamaoka launched the original Urayasu Tekkin Kazoku (Super Radical Gag Family) manga in Weekly Shōnen Champion in 1993. The 31-volume manga spawned two sequels: the 28-volume Ganso! Urayasu Tekkin Kazoku from 2002 to 2010, and the current Maido! Urayasu Tekkin Kazoku which began in 2010.
The original Super Radical Gag Family manga already inspired a 33-episode television anime 16 years ago in 1998. Akitarō Daichi (Fruits Basket, Kodocha, Now and Then, Here and There) directed the first anime at Studio DEEN.
Weekly Shōnen Champion will publish more details about the new television anime in future issues.
