Kadokawa opened an official website for an television anime adaptation of Hotondo Shindeiru's Isekai Ojisan (Uncle from Another World) manga on Friday.

Synopsis
Seventeen years ago, Takafumi's uncle fell into a coma, but now he's back like a man risen from his grave. Soon, Takafumi discovers two bizarre things: His uncle treasures video games above all else, and, while comatose, he was actually transported to another world as some heroic guardian! Now, not only does Takafumi have to room with an uncle who is literally magical, he also has to catch the guy up on two decades of history—smartphones, high-speed internet, modern anime tropes...and the traumatic outcome of the '90s console war! (Source: Yen Press)

The comedy fantasy manga began serializing on the ComicWalker we manga portal in June 2018. Kadokawa will ship the sixth compiled volume on July 23. Isekai Ojisan has a cumulative 1.5 million copies of its volumes in circulation.

Uncle? But in this context, this is a boomer-like joke.



Same energy as boomer jokes, but the uncle interests make he seem more like a Gen-X shut in, who is a massive SEGA otaku.


I wanted to say that in this context it was more correct to translate as an old man.

From a quick glance at the source material this is going to need just the right screen writer and director to make it work.

Different, interesting proposal...

Now that's definitely not something I would've expected getting an anime.

>cover is an elf girl

My disappointment is immeasurable and my day is ruined

Jokes aside, this sounds pretty interesting. I'm always down for some reverse isekai.


Same, I’d be more interested if the cover was the uncle sword in hand looking confused in the middle of the street.

can't expect much especially the character design shown here is not to my preference lol. hope the comedy is more through action though.

The manga is genius! Almost every chapter that I've read has left me with tears in my eyes due to laughing so much. The story is great too and all of the Sega references.

I can't wait for the anime.

Is this gonna be some fantasy slice of life again? Cuz almost every season there is 1.
Seems interesting though

Okay so whos the elf chick on the main cover ?


Well she has ring and looks like tsundere so uncle’s wife from isekai I guess

Jun 18, 3:05 AM by Heretixin

A post-isekai tale. That can make an interesting enough twist.

Looks interesting might read the manga. :)

Jun 17, 11:24 PM by aPleb

That premise actually sounds really cool. I'm guessing it’s actually like a post-isekai series ending where the hero returns to his original world?
Either that or the uncle character is full of shit lol

OH YESSS! FINALLY!
Cant wait to see it.

Jun 17, 11:20 PM by ReRakCakMag

Hmm this seems pretty interesting.

Jun 17, 10:34 PM by MegamiRem

The premise sounds interesting (and a welcome change that asks what happened once you get back home). Please the promo image isn’t supposed to be some tsundere character (emotionally incompetent characters bore me)
