Gourmet Manga Medamayaki no Kimi Itsu Tsubusu? Gets TV Anime

posted on by Egan Loo
Gō Ōhinata's comedy about man obssessed with how to eat inspires 4 anime/live-action episodes

An anime adaptation of Gō Ōhinata's Medamayaki no Kimi Itsu Tsubusu? (When Do You Break the Yolk of an Egg Fried Sunny-Side Up?) manga has been green-lit, and it will premiere on the public broadcaster NHK's General channel this August.

The gourmet manga focuses on the dining of cuisine. The protagonist Jirō Tamiyamaru is more obsessed with how to eat than most people, and the manga comically depicts how he agonizes over the differences with how others eat.

Rareko (Yawaraka Sensha, Chi-Sui Maru, Gakkatsu!) is directing the anime at the studio Fanworks. Each of the four episodes is composed of a Flash anime segment and a live-action segment. The live-action segments visit actual restaurants to explore eating styles.

The manga has been running in Enterbrain's Monthly Comic Beam magazine, and Kadokawa published the second compiled volume in January.
