Anime Shorts to Adapt “Isobe Isobee Monogatari”

An early look at next Monday’s Shonen Jump 2015 issue 48 has revealed the announcement of plans to adapt Ryou Nakama’s 2013 ongoing comedy manga Isobe Isobee Monogatari: Ukiyo wa Tsurai yo into a series of 30-second anime shorts and a stage production.


The very-Japanese series follows the non-adventures of a slacker samurai, told in wood block style.
