Via Comic Natalie: Shintaro Asanuma returns as the fast-talking Protagonist in the sequel to Tomihiko Morimi’s “The Tatami Galaxy”, “Yojohan Time Machine Blues”. Ozu, Akashi, Higuchi, and the unnamed Protagonist must contend with a mysterious time machine that suddenly drops in their midst. Check out the promotional video below.
A cult favourite since it first aired in 2010, “The Tatami Galaxy” follows the story of the Protagonist, a student at Kyoto University, who joins a different university club (or “circle”) at the beginning of each episode — triggering a series of events that are eerily similar but ever so slightly different.
The show was animated by MADHOUSE and directed by Masaaki Yuasa of “Devilman Crybaby” and “Japan Sinks” fame — who later on went to found the animation studio Science SARU.
