Crunchyroll announced on Thursday that it will add Mr. Osomatsu The Movie (Eiga no Osomatsu-san) anime film on Friday, November 8 at 12:00 p.m. EST. The film will be available for users worldwide except in Asia.

Crunchyroll describes the film:

Those sextuplets are back in an all-new theatrical feature!

The Matsuno sextuplets are crappy NEET virgins who still live at home even though they're in their twenties.

They happen to go to a class reunion and see that the rest of their classmates are being proper adults with actual jobs.

The sextuplets are unable to keep their pathetic lives a secret and head back home in a state of melancholy.

Drowning their sorrows with alcohol, Osomatsu and the others go to bed. The next day, they happen to find that...

The film opened in Japan on March 15. The film ranked at #7 in its opening weekend. The film eventually earned 518,369,500 yen (about US$4.66 million).

The film's returning staff members included director Yōichi Fujita, scriptwriter Shū Matsubara, character designer Naoyuki Asano, and Studio Pierrot on animation production. The film also included returning cast members.

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 second Mr. Osomatsu anime season premiered in Japan on TV Tokyo and TV Aichi in October 2017.

Viz Media acquired the digital streaming, electronic sell-through, home video, and merchandise rights for the Mr. Osomatsu anime, including the second season. Viz Media will release the anime with an English dub.
