What happens once you put your games away for the day? That's what artist and personality 326 hopes to explore in his new tate-anime series, Dot Bit Retro: Boku Dake no Kusoge.
326 (full name Mitsuru Nakamura) lent his unique art style to the Gitaroo Man games, and is also known for his poetry and on-air work. His new project is the result of a successful crowdfunding campaign.
The story takes place inside the world of fictional handheld game Pocket Dogezaemon — specifically, how their lives unfold when the game is turned off. The voice cast announced so far includes:
Tart: CV Ami Koshimizu (Ryuko Matoi, Kill la Kill)
Earth: CV Rie Murakawa (Ram, Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World-)
Dogezaemon: CV Atsushi Imaruoka (Rudolf von Stroheim, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure)
Papa: CV Manabu Sakamaki (Tsukikage, Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc-V)
Mint: CV Satomi Moriya (Erwin, Girls und Panzer)
(Note: Names are not official romanizations.)
Dot Bit Retro is now streaming on the Production IG app Anime Beans (formerly Tate Anime).
