New “Isobe Isobee Monogatari” Anime Teaser Spotted

An earlier look next week’s issue 9 of Shonen Jump, in addition to revealing the slate of six upcoming new series, shows that the issue promotes a color page for Ryou Nakama’s 2013 ongoing comedy manga Isobe Isobee Monogatari: Ukiyo wa Tsurai yo in issue 10, proclaiming plans for a new anime (with a question mark caveat added to the proclamation). 


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

Isobe Isobee – Daiki Yamashita
Jo Nakajima – Ayumu Murase
Isobee’s Mother – Chiaki Takahashi 
Gennai Hiraga – Takashi Matsuyama
Narrator – Raiko Sakamoto


Mankyu (Puchimas! Petit Idolmaster, Gundam-san, Fist of the North Star Taste of Strawberry) helmed the Gathering production.
