You may have noticed how Netflix has steadily picked up speed with some of its licensed anime releases in recent years, and now it’s getting ready to have one of the fastest releases yet, as one of the new summer 2022 anime deals will be launched worldwide the same day it hits Japan. When the streaming service first began licensing new anime releases, fans often refused the fact that it usually meant a seasonal offer would hit outside of Japan months later after its debut. This would often include a full multilingual dub for the wait, but it was a wait nonetheless.
Fans have seen the service take off in recent years with new series being launched a few weeks after their first debut such as. Blue period and Komi can not communicate, but it seems to be getting even faster for uncle from another world. Scheduled release in Japan on July 6, Netflix’s worldwide ads for July have confirmed that it will also be streamed on July 6 outside Japan. It’s not yet revealed what that means for the rest of the schedule, but we could have a simulcast-like release on hand with this one.
What to expect from this now groundbreaking series is Uncle from Another World directed by Shigeki Kawai at Atelier Pontdarc. With Takehito Koyasu as the titular uncle, Jun Fukuyama as Takafumi, Mikako Komatsu as Fujimiya, Haruka Tomatsu as Elf, Aoi Yuki as Mabel, Aki Toyosaki as Alicia, Kenichi Suzumura as Edger, Nobuhiko Okamoto as Raiga and Hisako Kanemoto. Netflix is starting to tease Uncle from another world as such:
“Autumn 2017 … Hit by a truck when he was 17 years old, Takafumi’s uncle suddenly wakes up from a coma that lasted 17 years. When Takafumi visits him in the hospital, he sees his uncle mumbling nonsense and declaring that he is returned from another world named ‘GRAN-BAHAMAL.’ “It is clear that his uncle has lost his bullets. Takafumi is lost for words, but his uncle proves his claims to be in another dimension by using some magic.”
The description goes on to say: “Takafumi decides to use his uncle’s powers to earn a living, and without calling other relatives, Takafumi takes him in and they start sharing an apartment together. While living with his uncle, teaches Takafumi about his amazing adventures and his boundless love of SEGA video games, but at times his uncle’s lonely and cruel experiences fill Takafumi with both joy and sadness. Two men from different generations work hard to create video content in this new and exciting comedy, taking place in a corner of an apartment complex! ”
