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.
Cast for earlier shorts, launched at the end of 2015, included
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.
