I'm From Japan Anime's Staff, New Visual Revealed

Anime will premiere in April within Oha-Suta program

The official website for the television anime adaptation of Seiji Hayashi's I'm From Japan (Jimoto ga Japan) manga revealed on Friday that the anime will premiere in April within the Oha-Suta ("Good Morning Star") children's television program. The site also revealed the anime's staff and visual.

Isamu Ueno (PRECARIOUS WOMAN EXECUTIVE MISS BLACK GENERAL) is directing the anime at ODDJOB, and Masato Naruse and Kōji Hashimoto are handling series composition. Hana Nohara and Fumiyuki Uehara are designing the characters.

This year's 12th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine will reveal the cast on Monday.

Viz Media published the first three chapters of the manga in English as part of its "Jump Start" initiative, and Shueisha publishes the manga on its MANGA Plus app in English. Shueisha describes the story:

Tokio Abiko has left his hometown in Yamagata prefecture to enter school in the great metropolis of Tokyo. On his first day, he encounters one of his classmates, a strange boy called Japan Hinomoto. Tokio soon realizes that Japan is the master of a very peculiar martial art – Todofu-ken: the Metro-erritorial Pre-fist-ure Style! With each of the 47 styles themed after a prefecture of Japan, enjoy a hilarious and unique tour of the country!

Hayashi launched the manga in the magazine last September. Shueisha shipped he manga's first volume on January 4.

Hayashi has previously published the "Oidemase Yamaguchi" one-shot and the Chikyū Ningen Terra-chan short manga series on the Shonen Jump+ website and app.
