Tatami Time Machine Blues


The mischief of our favorite Kyoto-based crew comes alive once again in the upcoming anime adaptation of Tatami Time Machine Blues, the sequel to The Tatami Galaxy penned by Tomihiko and Makoto Ueda and illustrated by Yusuke Nakamura. The official Twitter account for the series confirmed that Tatami Time Machine Blues will premiere on Disney+ in Japan on September 14.





Tatami Time Machine Blues is set over six episodes released weekly on the streaming platform, with the fifth and sixth episodes released together on October 12.

The story of Tatami Time Machine Blues is set during a sweltering midsummer day when Ozu, the protagonist's "terrible friend," accidentally drowns the only remote control for the air conditioning unit in their apartment. While they discuss their predicament with Akashi, the protagonist's raven-haired love interest, a sloppily-dressed time-traveling student arrives from 25 years in the future, prompting the protagonist to borrow his time machine in an effort to snatch the remote control from the past before it breaks.


Sonny Boy director Shingo Natsume is directing Tatami Time Machine Blues at Science SARU, taking over from Masaaki Yuasa who directed The Tatami Galaxy and spin-off anime film The Night Is Short, Walk On Girl. Disney+ will be releasing the series internationally, though no date is confirmed at this time.
