From The Tatami Galaxy to The Eccentric Family and beyond, Tomihiko Morimi's books have inspired some of our most dazzling modern anime. With a sequel to The Tatami Galaxy coming from the director of One-Punch Man, today let's explore what makes his stories so special!
Disney also revealed today that three other anime series will be exclusively streaming on Disney+, including, the new The Tatami Galaxy sequel Yojohan Time Machine Blues, the new Black ★★ Rock Shooter DAWN FALL anime, and the Summer Time Rendering anime adaption. Some light details on all the anime were revealed as well which can be read after the jump!
An anime adaptation of Tomihiko Morimi's Tatami Time Machine Blues novel is in the works by Science SARU (Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken!). The novel was published by KADOKAWA in July 2020 as a collaboration work between Morimi's The Tatami Galaxy novel and Makoto Ueda's Summertime Machine Blues stage play. Hit the jump for more details.
You can't turn back the hands of time, but you can realize with growing shock and horror that the year 2010 was a decade ago and a bunch of the coolest anime titles from that time period are slowly but inexorably sliding from the "modern classic" category into the plain old "classic" category. Hit the jump to join us as we look back at ten titles from 2010 that we are surprised to see turn 10 years old.
It's a blast from the past (or possibly the future), because Kadokawa has released a special preview video promoting Yojohan Time Machine Blues ("The Tatami Time Machine Blues"), a sequel novel to The Tatami Galaxy written by Tomihiko Morimi and Makoto Ueda and featuring a cover illustration by Yusuke Nakamura, and the video features voice actor Shintarō Asanuma reprising his role as the fast-talking protagonist from the 2010 TV anime adaptation of The Tatami Galaxy.
