"Kaiji" spin-off goes even deeper with another adaptation based on a manga written by Tensei Hagiwara
Just when you thought Kaiji spin-off Mr. TONEGAWA Middle Management Blues couldn't get any goofier, now it seems that poor Mr. Tonegawa's job is in danger, because in October of 2018 the time slot for Mr. TONEGAWA: Middle Management Blues is being "hijacked" by another Kaiji spin-off: Ichinichi Gaishutsuroku Hancho ("One-Day Outing Chronicle Hancho").
Based on the manga written by Tensei Hagiwara and illustrated by Motomu Uehara and Kazuya Arai, Ichinichi Gaishutsuroku Hancho is a "food porn" story that follows the beleaguered members of Group E of the Teiai Group's forced labor camp when they get a 1-day pass to ditch work and enjoy themselves eating and drinking. The cast for Ichinichi Gaishutsuroku Hancho includes:
- Chō as Ohtsuki.
- Takuya Sato as Numakawa.
- Yoshitsugu Matsuoka as Isawa.
- Toshiki Masuda as (Black Suit) Miyamoto.
- And Tomoaki Maeno as Odagiri.
Like Mr. TONEGAWA Middle Management Blues, Ichinichi Gaishutsuroku Hancho is directed by Keiichiro Kawaguchi and features animation production by MADHOUSE. It will broadcast during the 25:59 time slot on October 09, 2018, as part of NTV's AnichU programming block.
