Crunchyroll announced on Wednesday that it has added Frankenstein Family, the Taiwanese-Japanese animation adaptation of Yanai's Jikken-hin Kazoku: Creatures Family Days manga, to its catalog. The first two episodes are available now, with two new episodes available every week on Wednesday at 3:00 p.m. EDT. The anime is available worldwide except in Asia.
Crunchyroll describes the anime:
Tanisu's parents are mad scientists who live outside of normal society. They locked up their own children up on an isolated island and did experiments on them in secret, turning Tanisu's older brother and three older sisters into strange creatures. One day, their parents were arrested, and the siblings were moved to another island by the welfare office.
The trouble is that none of the siblings except Tanisu know how to interact in modern day society...
The series premiered in Japan on April 2.
Wei Tianxing directed the series at Big Firebird Cultural Media Co., Ltd. Cai Zhiheng wrote the scripts, Li Xiangmei was the character designer, and Liang Zhongwen was the producer. Tomohiro Seki was the sound director for the Japanese language version, and was also credited with planning. Masahiro Hiramitsu (Kenka Banchō Otome: Girl Beats Boys) was the animation producer. Yūyu composed the music. Rin Akatsuki performed the show's opening theme song "Early Days," and Kano performed the ending theme song "Haru ni Ochite."
The manga launched in Shinchosha's Comic @ Bunch magazine in the December issue in October 2017, and it marks Taiwanese creator Yanai's Japanese debut.
