Animal-loving wrestler is sent to another world in manga illustrated by Baka & Test's Mattaku, Yumeuta

The official Twitter account for Kadokawa's Shōnen Ace magazine announced on Friday that Natsume Akatsuki's Kemonomichi manga will get an anime this year. The announcement did not specify the format of the anime.

The manga follows masked wrestler Genzō Shibata, who likes all kinds of animals and creatures. One day he is summoned to another world, where a princess asks him to help kill magical beasts, but he gets mad and puts her in a German suplex. Instead, he begins life as a pet shop owner in the other world.

Akatsuki (Konosuba) writes the series and Baka & Test - Summon the Beasts artist team Mo-suke Mattaku and Yumeuta are providing the art. The duo launched the manga in Shōnen Ace in November 2016. The fourth compiled volume will ship on January 26.
