Tubi TV Streams Mr. Osomatsu Anime's 2nd Season
posted on by Justin Piselli
Viz Media acquired the digital streaming, electronic sell-through, home video, and merchandise rights for the Mr. Osomatsu anime, including the second season.
Yōichi Fujita is directing the anime's second season at Studio Pierrot with character designer Naoyuki Asano. Shū Matsubara is acting as the series script supervisor and scriptwriter. Other main staff members are also returning, along with the main voice cast. AŌP is again performing the opening theme song, while ROOTS66 — 27 musical artists who were born in the year 1966 (the year the original Osomatsu-kun anime premiered) — are perfoming the ending theme song "Let's Go! Muttsugo! ~6-iro no Niji~" (Let's go! Sextuplets! Six-Color Rainbow) with the voice cast.
The Mr. Osomatsu television anime is inspired by Fujio Akatsuka's original Osomatsu-kun manga and "high tension comedy" TV anime, which centered on the Matsuno household with 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 Osomatsu-kun series followed the family when the sons were 10 years old. Mr. Osomatsu re-imagines the original manga and TV anime with the sextuplets as adults.
