Manga compares making tonkatsu with DJing at a club

The previously revealed anime of author Iipyao and artist Yūjirō Koyama's Tonkatsu DJ Agetarō manga will air on television.

The gag manga follows Agetarō Katsumata, a stupid but honest guy whose family has run a tonkatsu (breaded pork cutlet) restaurant for three generations. He's also a beginner club DJ.

The manga series began weekly serialization in Shueisha's Shonen Jump+ app in November. Shortly after it debuted, a panel from the comic went viral. The panel, pictured below, features the main character having an epiphany that "tonkatsu cooks and DJs are the same" and makes makes a pun on "flyer" (for an event) and "fryer" (at a restaurant).

The manga also began monthly serialization in Shueisha's Men's Non No fashion magazine. Shueisha will publish the third compiled volume on August 4.
