This reminded me of Osomatsu san too. Miyu Irino, Sakurai Takahiro and Ishida Akira will participate too so I think I'll try it out. I wonder if there's gonna be another Osomatsu san season or not lol.

Anyway I hope the comedy is just as good!

Unlike Osomatsu-kun, I'm pretty much lucky to have watched Tensai Bakabon as a kid at local TV station.

Definetly checking this out. I think this will be the same as the last time I've checked this, not likely to be changed too much like Osomatsu-kun to Osomatsu-san.

Edit: Now I've realized those eyes....

Wow this look nice... Remind me a lot of Osomatsu-San. And Takahiro Sakurai and Miyu Irino will be here too.

Major props to the youtubers subbing the 1999 version. I hope they finish in time for the remake's airing so I can better appreciate the characters.

Ah no I'm not trying to say they're the same... I guess I worded this very poorly. It's just that I wasn't so convinced over Osomatsu-san and since it is by the same creator it didn't gave me much of a good impression.

I MIGHT skip it, buuuuuuut I think I'll give it at least a shot. Who knows. The staff seems promising though ngl. That's what I'll say.


Oh, okay!
Also, if it's only about Osomatsu-san, then don't worry. Tensai Bakabon has the same creator as Osomatsu-kun. Osomatsu-san is based on Osomatsu-kun but only that, -san is totally different. And it seems like the new Bakabon is going to be similar to the original one.
And one more thing: I hope I don't sound like I'm desperately trying to convince you to watch it. Because I don't! It's just that I know what people think of OsoSan so I don't want them to think Tensai Bakabon is going to be the same. Because I doubt it.
Well, now I'll better shut up!


Oh it's fine! No worries! I can completely understand where you're coming from and why you were trying to reply, it's more of a clarification if anything. So I do appreciate that in all honesty ^^ I don't think you were trying to convince me, you were just trying to clarify if I got something wrong which is fine really xP Hehe.

But I'll give it a try. I think its more of me having a bad taste in my mouth with Osomatsu but I shouldn't always judge series based on its creator alone (well... I did that with Inuyashiki but that's a different story xsx)

Ok, I don't want it to go do far, so: Tensai Bakabon isn't neither Osomatsu-kun, nor Osomatsu-san. It just has the same creator. But it is NOT the same. Actually, I think Bakabon is better. Well, I can't tell how this new version is going to turn out... But judging by older versions (which I watched even though I don't know Japanese and still loved them) and the fact that the new one won't have a time skip, it's going to be worth watching.

Bakabon: Miyu Irino (Osomatsu-san)
Rerere no Ojisan: Akira Ishida (Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu)
So instead of Osomatsu-san 3rd season, this will be aired instead? Like Osomatsu-san series, I might ended up watching this because of these two (D.N.Angel) even though I've never read the manga nor watched original anime. I like that Miyu-Miyu got the main role (I think? Because his role is on the title, too).

EHHHH... Not a big fan of Osomatsu-san to be completely honest so I MIGHT potentially skip this time. Then again, who knows. The staff looks competent though.

This manga is old as hell, can this hold up, I know Osomatsu-san held up because it had a prequel in the 80's and it was changed a bit for fujo appeal, but this doesn't have that, there was one throwback that aired that reeked of an anime of it's time.
