posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The official Twitter account for Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine revealed on Saturday that Seiji Hayashi's I'm From Japan (Jimoto ga Japan) manga is getting an anime adaptation. The anime will air on television starting in April.
Tokio Abiko is a transfer student from Yamagata prefecture. He's rough, he's tough and he wants to beat up the strongest kid in school and earn the respect that he and Yamagata prefecture deserve! But he soon makes an unlikely friend who accepts everyone no matter where they're from—and his name is Japan!
Hayashi launched the manga in the magazine on September 15. The "locality gag" manga features stories about "love for hometowns." The manga's first volume will ship on January 4.
Update: The anime will be a television anime that will premiere in April.
