posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Docomo's dTV service began streaming a teaser video and visual on Tuesday for dMatsu-san, the 12-episode short anime spinoff series of the Mr. Osomatsu anime premiering on dTV.
The first episode premiered on Tuesday at 12:00 p.m. The short series is divided into two arcs. The "Totoko x Muttsugo" (Totoko x Sextuplets) arc features the six brothers having conversations with Totoko, who is depicted as "a certain princess." This story has six "versions," one for each brother. The "Iyami x Muttsugo" (Iyami x Sextuplets) arc features the six brothers and their everyday life with Iyami. It also has six "versions," one for each brother.
The second cour of the second season for the main Mr. Osomatsu show is slated to premiere this month. AŌP's "cadet" group AŌP Zero will perform the new opening theme song "Maboroshi Wink" (Illusion Wink) alongside the main group for a total of 11 performers. The Osomatsu-sans and the voice actors for the Matsuno brothers will perform the ending theme song for the second cour.The song is titled "Otona ÷6 × Kodomo × 6."
The second Mr. Osomatsu anime season premiered in Japan on TV Tokyo and TV Aichi last October, and is also running on the TV Osaka, AT-X, and BS Japan channels.
Yoichi Fujita is returning to direct the anime's second season at Studio Pierrot with character designer Naoyuki Asano. Shū Matsubara is returning as series script supervisor and scriptwriter. Other main staff members are also returning, along with the main 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.
The first Mr. Osomatsu anime season premiered in October 2015, and Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired in Japan. The Osomatsu-san Ouma de Kobanashi special aired in Japan in December 2016, 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).
Viz Media acquired the digital streaming, electronic sell-through, home video, and merchandise rights for the Mr. Osomatsu anime, including the second season.
