Fuji TV’s famous Noitamina animation bloc will be airing the anime starting October, with MAPPA animating the project. Shuhei Yabuta, who acted as the 3D director of Attack on titan, is directing the series. They previously revealed a PV back in December:
Cruchyroll is releasing the manga digitally, and here’s how they describe the manga’s story:
Ichiro Inuyashiki is down on his luck. While only 58 years old, his geriatric looks often have him written off as a pathetic old man by the world around him and he’s constantly ignored and disrespected by his family despite all that he’s done to support them. On top of everything else, his doctor has revealed that he has cancer and it appears that he has little time left in this world. But just when it seems things couldn’t get any worse, a blinding light in the night sky strikes the earth where Ichiro stands. He later wakes up to find himself unscathed, but he soon starts to notice that there’s something…different about himself.
And speaking of the manga, Comic Natalie is reporting that it will be ending in five more chapters.
