posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Bruce Hung and Kent Tsai will star in the series, and Hsi-ming Chang is directing the series. The series will debut in Asia in 2022, but a release window is not yet set for Japan. The show will have 12 30-minute episodes.
Monthly Comic Gene also published a new one-shot for Itokichi on Monday titled "Ankomochi! Itsuka Daifuku ni Naru Sono Hi Made" (Red Bean Mochi! Until the Day I Someday Become Daifuku).
Itokichi launched the four-panel manga in Kadokawa's Comic Gene magazine in 2011, and ended the series in February 2020. Kadokawa published the eighth and final compiled volume in February 2020.
What happens when an intruder from the sea stakes claim to your bathtub? A cool yet demure teenage boy named Tatsumi must learn to live with the self-obsessed and playful merman, Wakasa, in a small Tokyo apartment. These two dissimilar young men will learn what it takes to deal with one another in their everyday lives. Of course, impromptu visits by Wakasa's ocean friends–an anthropomorphised octopus, jelly fish, and hermit crab–do not make things easier. Welcome to Tatsumi's bathtub. It's getting crowded.
