Shuhei Miyazaki’s Me & Roboco manga previously made the leap to an anime adaptation, and now it’s time to take the comedy saga to the big screen. A theatrical anime film was recently revealed for the series, and is currently lined up for a premiere in winter 2024 in Japan.
Check out the teaser that came along with the announcement:
Akitaro Daichi (Tonkatsu DJ Agetaro) is directing the adaptation of Shuhei Miyazaki’s manga, with Michihiro Sato as assistant director, Sayuro Ooba as series composition writer and Yuko Ebara as character designer at animation production house Gallop.
The Me & Roboco manga has been running in Weekly Shonen Jump since July 2020.
Here’s how VIZ Media sums up the manga’s story:
In a world where most families own a cute maid robot, average elementary kid Bondo hopes for one of his own. But the wacky robot who shows up is anything but average!
