Yotsuba&!’s resident cardboard robot mascot, Danboard, is finally getting itself an anime adaptation… sort of, as NHK has announced that Nyanbo, Danboard’s cat variant, will be getting itself a TV anime of its own… even before the main series has even gotten an anime adaptation.
Titled “Nyanbo!,” the new TV anime will be a 5-minute short, which is animated by Shirogumi Inc., which is best known for their 3D animation work, as well as animating the anime movie, Stand By Me Doraemon. The anime is set to premiere in October, and will be aired on NHK-E TV.
So, who here is excited for Nyanbo? I surely am! Who knows? Maybe this could lead to Kiyohiko Azuma’s Yotsuba&! manga to finally get an anime adaptation!
