According to Monthly Big Comic Spirits magazine, manga "Danchi Tomoo" was announced to get a TV anime adaptation. It will be aired from April.

One of the pages from Tomoo vol.19

It's a heartwarming and sometimes nonsense comedy about an elementary school boy Daichi Tomoo.

Looks good,... I guess?

I mean, comedy, SoL, and seinen are definitely my cup of tea but the manga doesn't look too popular to catch anyone's attention.

Let's see how this one goes.

Edit: Wait, is this any similar to Yotsuba&?

I have a feeling it's a 3/5-minute anime as well.

I was looking forward to some certain shows this Winter season but upon discovering they're just a bunch of shorts kinda lowered my hype towards the whole thing.

Talk about untouched. It also looks old.

Might or might not watch. Needs more details. Though I'll probably forget about this when Spring comes.

It's unpopularity is all the more reason for me to try it out.

I do hope for 21-23 minute episodes though, but I doubt it now that there are so many short episode anmes :/

If it's like Mainichi Kaasan, then it might be an interesting watch.

Pretty much, it seems all 4koma adaptations are becoming like this.

art is not what I'd like, story doesn't interest me and it sounds like a short anime. :/ No.

I actually really liked Danchi Tomoo. I'm glad such a lighthearted and fun manga is getting an anime.




I miss image BBC Code. May this sig stand as a testament to SSJMaster's power.

The manga isn't a 4koma. I only hope they doesn't make it into a 3 minute series.

Looks pretty bad. Probably another 5 min animu. Maybe some other time...

NHK listed the airing time is 9:30 a.m - 9:55 a.m every Saturday and a repeat airing at 5:00 p.m - 5:25 p.m on same day in their site.

http://www3.nhk.or.jp/toppage/navi/anime.html

団地ともお
総合 : 4月6日(土)放送スタート
毎週土曜 午前9時30分~9時55分
毎週土曜 午後5時~5時25分(再)

Opening Theme: 団地でDAN!RAN! (Danchi de Dan! Ran!) by 怒髪天 (Dohatsuten) feat.キヨサク (Mongol800) (Kiyosaku from Mongol800)

Ending Theme: スタートライン!(Startline!) by ソナーポケット (Sonar Pocket)

Since this is NHK show and the original source (there are 21 volumes of the manga atm), I guess there is a high chance of this series airing more than 1 cour.

Wow thanks.
Hard to believe that this isn't a short, i'm glad though because i'm trying my best to avoid short series from now on.

Might give this a go if anyone subs it.

I came here to post exactly the same thing.

From the start I imagined that this would be the type of show to fly underneath everybody's radar. Still, my expectations are there and they're positive since I enjoy this kind of show.

I'm looking forward to this. But sadly no subs take it yet :(

I've read the manga. For those who haven't read it, it is a lighthearted but thoughtful take on kids growing up (and their neighbourhood).
If you have watched Hey Arnold, I think it's pretty similar. So this is kinda like Hey Arnold+Japanese Cultures.
