The first stage play ran from September to October last year.
Fujio Akatsuka's original Osomatsu-kun manga and "high tension comedy" TV anime centered on the Matsuno household, which has six naughty and mischievous sons (who are sextuplets). All of the sextuplets, including the eldest Osomatsu, are all in love with the same girl, Totoko. The original series followed the family when the sons were 10 years old.
The Mr. Osomatsu show re-imagines the original manga and TV anime with the sextuplets as adults. The series premiered last October. Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired in Japan. The Osomatsu-san Ouma de Kobanashi special aired in Japan on December 12, and Crunchyroll streamed the anime under the title "Mr. Osomatsu JRA Special 2016." The 24-minute special is part of the "Hashire! Oumatsu-san" collaboration between Mr. Osomatsu and the Japan Racing Association. The collaboration also includes a series of six new anime shorts titled "Mutsugo to Ouma no Monogatari" (The Story of the Sextuplets and a Horse). The anime's second season premieres October 2.
Viz Media acquired the digital streaming, electronic sell-through, home video, and merchandise rights for the Mr. Osomatsu anime, including the upcoming second season.
