Manga 'Kochira Katsushikaku Kameari Kouenmae Hashutsujo' Gets New TV Anime Project [Update 6/19]

According to the 29th issue of Weekly Shounen Jump magazine of 2016, which will go on sale on June 20, the manga Kochira Katsushikaku Kameari Kouenmae Hashutsujo (abbreviated as Kochikame) will be receiving a new TV anime adaptation. The announcement comes with the 40th anniversary of the series, and a new key visual was revealed in that issue of the magazine.

Synopsis
The typical Kochikame plot involves Ryo-san coming up with a money-making scheme by inventing a new gadget or capitalizing on a fad, achieving great success, calling on Nakagawa's help as things turn sour, and finally losing it all as the fad runs out of steam or out of control. While the plots are gag-driven, much of the humor comes from the juxtaposition of mundane characters with the bizarrely incongruous (Nakagawa's wealth, Maria's appeal, everyone's lack of actual police work), most of which is never explained or rationalized in the slightest. (Source: Wikipedia)

The series is drawn by Osamu Akimoto and has been publishing since 1976 with 199 volumes in print. It previously received a TV anime adaptation that aired between 1996 and 2004 for a total of 373 episodes.

Well I can't say there's not a dub, but there isn't a US dub. I had to order DVDs off amazon to get it :P As for the episodes that disappear everyday its because of copyright that they're not supposed to be there. Thats why they disappear everyday. And this is on the original japanese raw version.

1. The complete series of Kochikame with original Japanese voice was never on internet.
2. Only dubs with Spanish language up to episode 298 was/is on internet. (and some hindi dubs too)
3. They don't disappear everyday. Nothing will disappear if you know how to upload them well.
4. Those DVDs on amazon ? That's probably the 2 movie of kochikame you are talking about. Only they are available in original Japanese audio.

Its not the complete series, its mostly random episodes here and there. And yes they are the original japanese version and they are all raw. I've never seen a spanish dub of kochikame but I know many hindi dub episodes exist. Noow I wish they have the 2 Kochikame movies on DVD, those I just linked are just regular episodes on DVD.

I find episodes online all the time. They disappear everyday because they're not supposed to be there. I did find DVDs on amazon though, I got DVD 1 and am currently waiting on DVD 2 <3

They disappear wot ? There is an unwritten rule on internet "What goes on the internet stays on the internet". So unless you are talking about the dubbed versions or random episodes there isn't a place to find kochikame online.

Behold the NOSTALGIA glasses and rate it 10/10 before it airs. jk

Seriously though, this anime is a classic yet it can't be found on internet (if you don't include the random episodes). This is one of my childhood anime so I'm super hyped. I hope they will make a remake and not a sequel because none of us have seen it completely.

I heard about this series before awhile ago, might give some thought into watching it when it comes out or even the original series.

Awesome! The main guy is such a fun character in J-Stars Victory VS, but I haven't been able to find any episodes translated :(

Jun 16, 2016 5:29 PM by Monochrome

Hopefully this will get popular enough to get someone to license or scanlate the manga.

Jun 16, 2016 5:16 PM by Raijin-sama619

Its too bad that this series never made it to the US. I would have loved to watch it growing up xD I actually just got into this series about 7 or 8 months ago.
