Mr. Osomatsu Lines Up More Anime in 2022, 2023

Mr. Osomatsu Lines Up More Anime in 2022, 2023Mr. Osomatsu is lined up for some more anime in 2022 and 2023. That’s the word from an event in Japan over the weekend.

What form will this latest anime take? Well, it’s not exactly clear, but the two “works” will have limited theatrical screenings, meaning they’re likely mini-films or OVAs of some kind.

Rejoice, Osomatsu fans!

So far, the series has had three seasons of anime, plus a feature film which came out back in 2019. That’s on top, of course, of the original Osomatsu-kun franchise on which it’s based.

Viz Media is distributing Osomatsu in English, and here’s how they describe it:

In the hardworking country of Japan, the sextuplet Matsuno brothers from the legendary comedy manga Osomatsu-kun are now all grown up but just can’t be bothered to do anything productive with their lives. Allergic to work, inept with girls, and completely oblivious to what society thinks of them, the six twenty-somethings prefer to spend their days lying around their parents’ house, where Mom makes the food, Dad makes the money, and the pressures of modern living never intrude. After all, life is just too short to waste your time not wasting your time.
