Tono to Issho – Winter Anime Preview

Posted on: November 20, 2009

Samurai comedies? Sure, why not?The latest four panel gag comic to get an anime is Tono to Issho, a samurai-themed comedy from the minor publication Comic Flapper. The creator of the anachronistic Sengoku-era manga, Ooba Kai, jokingly refers to it as a “You-gotta-be-kidding-me anime adaptation” in the official announcement, continuing a long series of self-deprecating jokes about the series’ popularity – the manga is referred to as “That manga that sells well for some reason” in one of the motion comics.

Having watched a few of the motion comic videos, I’m still undecided on if I’m looking forward to this or not. It certainly has a few funny moments, but it’s not very good, to put it bluntly. Take away the part where it uses legendary samurai to pull off its gags and it seems decidedly mediocre. But who knows – the preview site says that more information about the January series will be available on December 5, so I’ll give it another look then. Check out some of the motion comics for yourself after the jump.
