This year’s fifth issue of Shogakukan’s Big Comic Superior magazine has announced that the anime of Mami Tsumura’s Kotaro Lives Alone manga will premiere on Netflix worldwide on March 10, 2022.
The “apartment comedy with laughs and tears” manga focuses on a four-year-old boy named Kotarō Satо̄, who moves next door to Shin Karino, an unsuccessful manga artist. Kotarō has no parents and lives alone. Not only does he seem to earn a living, he actually seems more put together than his own strange neighbors.
Tomoe Makino is directing the series at LIDEN FILMS. Tomomi Kimura is designing the characters, and Hiroshi Satо̄ is in charge of story composition.
