An anime adaptation of Tomihiko Morimi's Yojouhan Time Machine Blues (The Tatami Time Machine Blues) novel, sequel to Yojouhan Shinwa Taikei (The Tatami Galaxy), was announced by Kadokawa on Thursday. Fuji TV's noitaminA programming block posted an announcement promo on its YouTube channel, revealing the main staff.

Staff
Director: Shingo Natsume (Sonny Boy, ACCA 13-ku Kansatsu-ka)
Script: Makoto Ueda (Yojouhan Shinwa Taikei)
Original Character Design: Yusuke Nakamura (Yoru wa Mijikashi Arukeyo Otome)
Studio: Science SARU (Devilman: Crybaby, Eizouken ni wa Te wo Dasu na!)

Synopsis
Yojouhan Time Machine Blues takes place during a sweltering midsummer day when Ozu, the protagonist's "terrible friend," accidentally drowns the only remote control for the air conditioning unit in their apartment. While they discuss their predicament with Akashi, the protagonist's raven-haired love interest, a sloppily-dressed time-travelling student arrives from 25 years in the future, prompting the protagonist to borrow his time machine in an effort to snatch the remote control from the past before it breaks. (Source: Crunchyroll, edited)

Morimi published the sequel novel on July 29 last year, 16 years after the original novel shipped in December 2004. The sequel novel was inspired by Makoto Ueda's 2001 stage play Summer Time Machine Blues. The stage play was adapted into a live-action film in September 2005.

Madhouse produced an 11-episode television anime adaptation of the original Yojouhan Shinwa Taikei novel in Spring 2010, with Masaaki Yuasa (Ping Pong the Animation, Kaiba) at the helm.

Wow Shingo Natsume again? Sonny Boy has been an absolute treat every week. Probably the best anime that suits my needs in this season. And then he's coming back together with the Science Saru team?? Amazing.

We need to ask the peeps at sakugabooru to write about Shingo Natsume.

Tatami Galaxy was probably the last anime that I expected would ever get a sequel so this is surprising and pleasant news.
People on MAL refuse to actually enjoy watching anime.

Your taste in anime isn't a personality trait.

I recently made a joke on a podcast that I do about how Tatami Galaxy is one of those elitist starter pack anime that little to no casual anime fan knows about, and here we are now looking at a sequel announcement for it lol

Guess I finally have the incentive to watch this now after years of putting it off xD

It depends on what you define as being casual. The meme of being "starter pack" literally lies on the fact they're not obscure and literally the first things people watches whenever they get thrown around that type of recommendations. It took me like 2-3 days of having a MAL account in 2015 to stumble upon Tatami Galaxy and watch it, while almost an entire month to even notice Attack on Titan and SAO's existence.

Supongo que era mucho pedir una tercera de Uchouten Kazoku.
The tatami galaxy estaba mas que perfecto por si solo, pero tengo curiosidad por ver el resultado sin Maasaki Yuasa.

I'd be damned, there is also a movie named summer time machine blues adapting the stage play in its own way but it's still hilarious, one of my all time comedies.

I can't believe it! After 11 years we would be getting a sequel for this? Wow, color me surprised. Been a long time since I've watched this anime. Does this mean I'll get to see that mischievous Ozu again? Holy crap!

Oh, Ozu is in the key visual. Yup. Ok.

I wasn't ready for this. Tatami Galaxy was a masterclass anime 100%. This gets me hyped up. The crew's so promising too. Even if it isn't Yuasa, Natsume's perfect for this anime. He himself proved it with Space Dandy.

I'm so happy right now.

And the best part is that the sequel novel it is based on is just fantastic. Morimi has become a lot better author since writing Tatami Galaxy, and I'm a 100% sure Sience SARU will do it justice.

Since the announcement of the sequel book I hoped that Science Saru would adapt this, now it's true. Now, only Asian Kung-Fu Generation is missing to do the OP. I hope we can see the anime already in 2022.

The novel is great. The author manages to make believable characters and mindblowing plottwists that would put Anno and Nasu Kinoko to shame. I can't wait to see it in animated form.
