Pluto TV has picked up one of the more interesting shows this season that comes from a much older property with Rowdy Sumo Wrestler Matsutaro!!, aka Abarenbō Rikishi!! Matsutarō. The series is now available on the service here where it’s available for ad-supported viewing. The original manga had a twenty-year run starting in 1973 and had a couple of years running after that as well. It’s had OVAs previously in the 90′s but this marks its first TV run.
Plot concept: The story follows Matsutarō Sakaguchi, a giant roughneck man with strength far beyond ordinary people. He never uttered words like “work hard,” “strive,” and “dream” like the typical shōnen manga protagonist. However, he is stronger than anyone and peerless in sumo wrestling. His greatest weakness is his own carefree personality. He grows into a full-fledged sumo wrestler.
