Yojohan Time Machine Blues – Anime sequel explained

This new anime is an adaptation of Yojohan Time Machine Blues, a novel which is a sequel to The Tatami Galaxy. Science Saru did not specify yet whether it’ll be a TV anime series or a movie.

The new anime will be directed not by Masaaki Yuasa but by Shingo Natsume, who worked on The Tatami Galaxy: Storyboard (ep 6), Episode Director (ep 6), Key Animation (eps 1, 6). He was in the past the director of Sonny Boy, Space Dandy, the first season of One Punch Man at Madhouse, ACCA: 13-Territory Inspection Dept, and Boogiepop wa Warawanai (Boogiepop and Others).

The scriptwriter is Makoto Ueda, who was also the main scriptwriter of The Tatami Galaxy. The original character designs are still handled by Yusuke Nakamura and his unique style.

No release date was shared yet. The teaser trailer is extremely short, and doesn’t tell us any more. A teaser key visual was published too. You can find them both right below.

More information will be coming through the Twitter account of the series in the future.

More on Tatami Galaxy, Science Saru

The Tatami Galaxy is originally a novel written by Tomohiko Morimi. The anime series was first aired a decade ago in 2010. it’s an atypical anime with an unique style. With comedy and psychological thmes, the story follows an unnamed university student and the various choices they’re facing.

The first anime was directed by Masaaki Yuasa, who’s known for Devilman Crybaby, Mind Game, or Ping Pong. Masaaki Yuasa also directed Life is Short, Walk On Girl, a movie also based on a novel by Tomohiiko Morimi. It’ll be interesting to see how the new sequel fares without Yuasa directly directing the show himself. It’s very likely he’ll work on it eiher way, seeing Yuasa is the cofounder of Science Saru in the first place.
