It has been announced that a new anime series related to the manga Osomatsu-kun will be produced by Studio Pierrot. This is to celebrate the 80th birthday of mangaka Fujio Akatsuka, who is known as the king of gag manga. The series will feature the Matsuno sextuplets and show how they have grown up over the years.

Created by Akatsuka, the manga began serialization in Shounen Sunday in 1962 before moving on to other magazines after 1969. Studio Zero produced an anime adaptation in 1966, which was later remade by Studio Pierrot into an 86-episode series in 1988. The manga won the Shogakukan Manga Award in 1964. Akatsuka ended the series in 1990 and died in 2008 from pneumonia.

I'm so excited for this. Glad to see the Gintama director working on this and love the character designs. Overall great staff and nice to see old manga getting re-adapted. This is going to be so funny, just hope it's over 50 episodes long like the 1988 adaptation by Pierrot. Recommend to check out the website, it's pretty cool and well-made: http://www.osomatsusan.com/

So many old property resurrections nowadays. Not that I'm complaining. It's well worth the try.

Yes, although it doesn't look much here's hoping it works out well for a new show.

Now THIS is exciting. That staff looks great too, especially the sound director from Nichijou. Ah man, I'm looking forward to this.

It's like they're mixing all previous modern gag anime staffs and casts together here, yup, definite PTW.
