Martial Arts Gag Manga "I'm From Japan" Knocks Out TV Anime in April

First three chapters of comedy comic by Seiji Hayashi are available through Shonen Jump's "Jump Start" series


Pompadours and "Prefectural Fist" martial arts are coming soon to Japanese airwaves, because Seiji Hayashi's gag manga I'm From Japan (aka Jimoto ga Japan) is being adapted into a TV anime that will broadcast beginning in April of 2019. So far, few details (such as the main cast and staff) have yet been revealed about the production.



The original I'm From Japan manga began serialization in September of 2018 in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump manga magazine, and the first three chapters of I'm From Japan are also available in English from Viz Media as part of the "Jump Start" series. Viz describes the story of I'm From Japan as follows:



Tokio Abiko is a transfer student from Yamagata Prefecture. He's rough, he's tough, and he wants to beat up the strongest kid in school and earn the respect that he an Yamagata Prefecture deserve! But soon he makes an unlikely friend who accepts everyone no matter where they're from -- and his name is Japan!
