Can you believe it? I honestly can’t! We’re actually getting an anime adaptation of Tomodachi Game by studio Okuruto Noboru. While the studio is rather new, it has already created some popular anime, like How Not to Summon a Demon Lord and The Hidden Dungeon Only I Can Enter. Therefore, we’ve got an idea of how studio Okuruto Noboru will adapt Tomodachi Game. The TV anime will premiere in April, 2022.
The Tomodachi Game TV anime is based on Mikoto Yamaguchi and Yuuki Satou‘s manga of the same name. It began serialization on December 9, 2013. It’s still an ongoing manga series, available in the Bessatsu Shounen Magazine.
Hirofumi Ogura (Black Butler II, Cells at Work) is directing the anime, with Kenta Ihara handling the series composition. Kenta Ihara, for those that don’t know, is behind Vinland Saga, Saga of Tanya the Evil and Terror In Resonance. This means that Tomodachi Game’s script/series composition will be excellent! So for the full list of Kenta Ihara’s works, click here! But when it comes to other crew members, it’s important to note that Blade & Soul sound director, Hiroto Morishita, will work on Tomodachi Game as well.
