The summer 2018 anime series Mr. Tonegawa: Middle Management Blues is getting its home video releases in Japan handled by VAP and they’re going the box set route. The first set has been scheduled for a December 12th, 2018 release for twelve episodes with the DVD priced at 18,000 yen and the Blu-ray at 22,000 yen. Both sets are listed as five-disc sets with one of them being a bonus disc of some sort to be revealed later.

The second set will be scheduled for the spring 2019 period.

Set for a two-cour run of twenty-four episodes, Keiichiro Kawaguchi directed it based on the series composition by Mitsutaka Hirota. Haruhito Takada served as the character designer and chief animation director.

The Japanese cast includes Toshiyuki Morikawa as Yukio Tonegawa, Masato Hagiwara as Kaiji Itō, Wataru Hatano as Kenji Yamazaki, Nobunaga Shimazaki as Jirō Saemonsaburō, Taku Yashiro as Ebitani, Kōtarō Nishiyama as Toshimasa Kawasaki, Daiki Hamano as Nakata, Takuya Eguchi as Kōji Dōshita, Kengo Kawanishi as Junichi Hagio, Takaya Aoyagi as Kikuchi, Chiharu Sawashiro as Nagata, Rena Maeda as Saeko Nishiguchi, Masatane Tsukayama as Kazuta Hyōdō, Rikiya Koyama as Gonta, Akira Ishida as Keiichi Ogino, Takuma Terashima as Ataru Yaotome, Atsushi Miyauchi as Yoshihiro Kurosaki, Kenjirou Tsuda as Yuuji Endou, Daisuke Namikawa as Seiya Ichijou, Akio Ootsuka as Masayan, and Jai Kabiria as the narrator.

Gesu no Kiwami Otome performed opening theme song “Sassoku to Hashiru Tonegawa-kun.”

The property has three volumes out and is something that will definitely appeal to an underserved part of the overall anime market.

Plot Concept: The series focuses on the “agonizing daily life of Teiai Group executive Yukio Tonegawa, who gets into conflicts with Hyōdō and the black suits.”
