Based on a line of dog character products inspired by the Mr. Osomatsu series, the Matsuinu anime is on the way to TV in Japan on October 7. A short new trailer arrived this week to preview more of the fun to come, and it took a moment to sprinkle in some info on the main staff behind the project.
The Matsuinu anime is being directed by Tetsuya Endo (One Piece: Episode of Skypiea, Saiyuki Reload), who is also handling scripts alongside writer Hitomi Ogawa (BanG Dream! It’s MyGo!!!!!). Character designs are credited to Yuki Nagashima and music is being handled by Yukari Hashimoto, Ruka Kawada, Tetsuya Shitara and Yayoi Sekimukai. Credit for the original Matsuinu designs goes to FuRyu.
See how the project that started as game prizes—featuring Shiba Inu, Husky, Retriever, Boston Terrier, Pomeranian and Chihuahua takes on the Matsuno brothers—is being translated into anime in the trailer below.
The latest Mr. Osomatsu anime adaptation, which originated with Fujio Akatsuka’s Osomatsu-kun manga, is available to stream on Crunchy roll, which describes the comedy like so:
Mr. Osomatsu is based off of the gag manga series Osomatsu-kun by Fujio Akatsuka, and ran from 1962 to 1969. The series features a set of sextuplets, the Matsuno brothers, with Osomatsu being the oldest brother and leader of the group.
