Takashi Taniguchi's Onara Gorō Project Gets TV Anime Shorts Starting in July
posted on by Kyle Hallmark
Independent anime creator Takashi Taniguchi's (Mori no Andō) latest work Onara Gorō (Fart Gorō) is receiving a mini television anime project. The anime will consist of weekly five-minute episodes that will air late at night on Kyushu Asahi Broadcasting and stream on YouTube starting in July.
Taniguchi previously launched a crowdfunding campaign for the anime on the Japanese crowdfunding website Makuake. The campaign reached its goal of 1.5 million yen (about US$14,005).
The anime is the third collaborative project between Kyushu Asahi Broadcasting and animation company ILCA after the Kurayami Santa and Kowabon horror anime shorts.
Onara Gorō has already participated in several collaborations and merchandise plans including a free 3D model in the MikuMikuDance animation program, an appearance in the ARAPPLI AR communication app, and a pair of underwear bearing Gorō's likeness.
Taniguchi previously streamed an "episode 0" of the anime on his YouTube channel in March.
Onara Gorō follows the everyday life of Gorō, the "most admirable of farts," as he solves problems in ways that only a fart can. Taniguchi began publishing a manga version in Shogakukan's Corocoro Aniki magazine in March.
