It has been announced on the official Shounen Jump website that the manga "Isobe Isobee Monogatari," which has begun serialization in this week's Shounen Jump, will also get a flash anime adaptation. It will be released along with the next issue of Shounen Jump's mobile apps "Jump LIVE" this winter.

"Isobe Isobee Monogatari" was originally a one-shot manga published in Shounen Jump in May to fill in a slot vacated by the suspension of One Piece at that time; however, due to the tremendous amount of positive feedback it received, the manga was serialized. The story is a gag comedy manga drawn in the Ukiyoe style but with people thinking and behaving like their counterparts in modern day Japan.

I haven't seen anime drawn in the Ukiyoe style before, I wish it wasn't a flash anime though, they are hit or miss (usually miss). Chances are it will be 2-5 minutes long so I may watch this.

For these type of manga it's better to read it than to watch it.

Edit: And flash anime adaption made it worse

Indeed, I still remember how painful it was to watch the flash anime of the other Shounen Jump gag manga "Saiki Kusuo no Ψ Nan"....

Now that's a fast anime announcement.

Though flash animation doesn't tend to be very good.
