On Friday, Kadokawa announced that Hotondoshindeiru’s Uncle From Another World (Isekai Ojisan) manga will be adapted into a television anime. KADOKAWAanime Youtube channel released a mock documentary-style announcement video. Check it out –
The interviewer asks a random man his thoughts on isekai genre and about the Uncle From Another World manga. The interviewer then reveals that the manga will be adapted into an anime. The man, on the other hand, believes the announcement is “false news.”
Yen Press licensed Uncle From Another World, and it describes the story:
Seventeen years ago, Takafumi’s uncle fell into a coma, but now he’s back like a man risen from his grave. Soon, Takafumi discovers two bizarre things: His uncle treasures video games above all else, and, while comatose, he was actually transported to another world as some heroic guardian! Now, not only does Takafumi have to room with an uncle who is literally magical, he also has to catch the guy up on two decades of history—smartphones, high-speed internet, modern anime tropes…and the traumatic outcome of the ’90s console war!
Hotondoshindeiru debuted the manga on Kadokawa’s ComicWalker website in June 2018. There are 1.5 million copies of the series in print. The manga’s sixth compiled book volume will be released on June 23.
