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.


Tatami Time Machine Blues is set over six episodes released weekly on Disney+ starting September 14, with the fifth and sixth episodes released together on October 12. The series is also being compiled into a film, which releases in Japan on September 30 in Japan for a limited-three-week span. The sixth episode is an exclusive story that will only be released on Disney+.


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.
