Adaptation based on novel by Tomihiko Morimi and Makoto Ueda hits Disney+ in 2022
Slack attack! A new key visual has been published for Tatami Time Machine Blues (known in Japan as Yojohan Time Machine Blues), an upcoming TV anime based on the time-tripping novel written by Tomihiko and Makoto Ueda and illustrated by Yusuke Nakamura about a group of college students who threaten the fabric of reality with a very petty mission through time and space.
The new key visual (above) shows the main cast of the series, as illustrated by Yusuke Nakamura, the illustrator for the original Tatami Time Machine Blues novel.
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-travelling 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.
The Tatami Time Machine Blues TV anime is directed by Shingo Natsume and features animation production by Science Saru. The series is scheduled to stream on Disney+ in 2022.
