In a rundown apartment, Ojisan demonstrates his magical skills to his nephew by summoning a sword out of thin air in a scene from the upcoming Uncle from Another World TV anime.


Isekai fantasy and old-school JRPG video games go hand-in-hand in the newly released non-credit opening animation for Uncle from Another World (known in Japan as Isekai Ojisan), an upcoming TV anime based on the seinen manga by Hotondoshindeiru about a Sega-obsessed guy who returns after nearly two decades adventuring in a magical fantasy world.
