Uncle from Another World


The Uncle from Another World TV anime has hit some snags during its run, pushing the broadcast of episode 8 and beyond to November 24. With that in mind, it was previously revealed that the broadcast will start over from the beginning on October 6, and a new visual is here to remind everyone that it’s time to press continue and try it all over again.

The initial delay was announced on September 2 due to COVID-19 affecting production. Thankfully, hardcore gamers like Takafumi’s uncle know it’s never really game over as long as you still have some continues in your pocket.




Based on the manga by Hotondoshindeiru, Uncle from Another World is directed by Shigeki Kawai (Blue Exorcist: Kyoto Saga assistant director) at studio Atelier Pontdarc, with series composition by Kenta Ihara (Saga of Tanya the Evil) and character designs by Kazuhiro Ota (Negima!?), who is also serving as chief animation director.

Yen Press, which publishes the manga’s official English version, describes the series as such:


Seventeen years ago, Takafumi’s uncle fell into a coma, but now he’s back like a man risen from his grave. Soon, Takafumi discovers two bizarre things: His uncle treasures video games above all else, and, while comatose, he was actually transported to another world as some heroic guardian! Now, not only does Takafumi have to room with an uncle who is literally magical, he also has to catch the guy up on two decades of history—smartphones, high-speed internet, modern anime tropes…and the traumatic outcome of the ’90s console war!


Netflix is currently streaming the anime adaptation worldwide.
