Unlike your uncle that shows up at family gatherings to grab a plate of food and immediately leave, the Uncle from Another World anime has stuck around for a while due to multiple COVID-related delays. But tonight, the long, arduous journey will finally come to a close with its thirteenth episode.


To commemorate the occasion, the series’ official Twitter accounts unveiled a brand-new visual:

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, whichpublishes 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.
