An anime adaptation of the sci-fi manga Terra Formars was announced via a poster in the 8th volume of the manga. This was displayed on Shueisha POP Haishin Corner, a virtual service which displays material from books and magazines. The manga will get both a TV anime and video anime adaptation.

The manga is written by Yu Sasuga with illustrations by Kenichi Tachibana.

The story is set in 2577, centuries after humanity attempted to terraform Mars with cockroaches, only for the human settlers to be wiped out by humanoid cockroaches when they land on Mars themselves.

JOHJ, just remember that the roaches are based off of Homo Erectus and are in fact red.

No red roaches please, just keep them black or dark brown for my amusement ;)

...They have always been red.

There's no way the casual observer of the manga would know. I mean, they ARE black.

Only because of the limitations of the manga format(black & white), you do realize this right?

read my sentence again.

Yes, they are N!GGAS

Looks interesting. Will give it a try once it starts airing.

The ova will cover BUGS2 arc, while the TV anime covers the Annex 1 arc.
No BUGS1 arc? that takes less than 10 min or will they cover it in one of the others.
Action/Gore/Politics/Comedy - this gonna be good.

I heard so much about this manga, both fame on how it has cool alien bugs and infamy on how its Sci Fi is so made up out of the *** and unrealistic. I'll try the anime to see what's the fuss is all about.

JOHJ! This is gonna be pretty tough to pull off with all the gore and stuff... Doubt it'll be worth watching until the BD release if they overdo the censoring. Happened with JoJo too, it's not like the gore is needed, its just that theres suddenly this big black smudge ruining the scene

JOHJ BE PRAISED!

Started reading this weird manga, which had some entertainment value even though it didn't look that great, story or characterization wise. Might give this series a try when it comes around.


I think the top review of it on MAL does a great job of summarizing it(and entertaining too)

The most hilarious, racist and dumb manga in recent times is getting an anime. This is the perfect trainwreck and I will enjoy every second of it!

those are some terrible reviews for the manga.......not sure if I should check it out or not now.......... :/

Is your lost since the manga is really awesome,well you hate cockroaches stay away.

Finally,i was waiting for this anime since i read the manga(caught with the trans in just 3 hours).Lets hope that Ig will make it.But indeed Madhouse could make some some awesome cockroaches.


It's not awesome, and the person said nothing about those laughable "cockroaches"

The show reeks of inconsistency and fallacies that will have people screaming.

looks interesting; lack of female characters though...will likely try

There are Female character a lot of them but most have some "unfortunately encounters" with the cockroaches.Some are even more powerful even than the male characters.


Calling them "characters" is being overtly generous, since the whole casts' personality is essentially the same

Oh, that infamous manga that many "critics" said it was going to be a masterpiece, but it just went without any recognition. I don't think this is gonna be eveen relevant.


What? Critics said it was going to be a masterpiece? Any real critic, or even MAL ones, would recognize this series as bad. You're also wrong about it not being relevant, the manga certainly is with 400k-500k sales per volume.
