The 48th issue of Weekly Shounen Jump
magazine, which will go on sale on October 26, will announce that the manga series Isobe Isobee Monogatari: Ukiyo wa Tsurai yo
will receive a new anime adaptation. The manga had previously been adapted into a flash anime
series in 2013.
Isobe Isobee Monogatari
is written and illustrated by Ryo Nakama
and has eight volumes in print. It was originally a one-shot published in May 2013 to fill a slot vacated by the suspension of One Piece
; however, due to the tremendous amount of positive feedback it received, the magazine continued it as a serialization.
In this ukiyoe-style manga, Isobe Isobee is a lazy, slacker samurai with big dreams. He lives with his mother, who thinks highly of him. He lays around the house, sneakily looks at Edo-period pornography without his mother noticing, naps at school... but he plans to become a respectable samurai one day! (Source: MangaHelpers)
