The NHK network is going to get something cute coming up they’ve ordered more of the short-form anime adaptation of Oya-san to Boku. Otherwise known as Landlady and Me, it’s based on the essay manga by Taro Yabe. This one had a run back in March where it operated a bit differently in that the five-minute episodes ran nightly for a week, five nights in total, for the whole run. A new batch of five episodes is set for this month that will kick off on June 8th, 2020 on the network.
It’s being directed by Hazumu Sakuta at Fanworks with Toru Hosokawa handling the scripts.
The Japanese cast includes Shusaku Kamikawa as the man and Naoko Watanabe as the landlady.
The two volumes of the manga have over 1.2 million copies in print so far since beginning in 2016.
Plot Concept: The manga is based on Yabe’s real-life experiences with his landlady.
