Dandadan Anime Officially in the Works at Science SARU


If you’ve read any of Yukinobu Tatsu’s Dandadan manga then you know an anime adaptation is an exciting prospect. Well, we’re one step closer to seeing it, because the official announcement was made for a Dandadan anime, which is currently in the works at Science SARU (Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken!, Scott Pilgrim Takes Off). 

The Dandadan anime is being directed by Fuga Yamashiro, with Hiroshi Seko on series composition and screenplays, Kensuke Ushio on music, Naoyuki Onda on character designs and Yoshimichi Kameda on yokai designs. 

So far, we have a teaser trailer and key visual to tide us over until we learn more.

Here’s how VIZ Media describes the original manga:

Momo Ayase strikes up an unusual friendship with her school’s UFO fanatic, whom she nicknames “Okarun” because he has a name that is not to be said aloud. While Momo believes in spirits, she thinks aliens are nothing but nonsense. Her new friend, meanwhile, thinks the exact opposite. To settle matters, the two set out to prove each other wrong—Momo to a UFO hotspot and Okarun to a haunted tunnel! What unfolds next is a beautiful story of young love…and oddly horny aliens and spirits?
