An online screening for the Mr. Osomatsu anime franchise’s first new “sixth anniversary” film, Mr. Osomatsu: The Hipipo Tribe and the Glistening Fruit, debuted a teaser trailer for the second new film, Mr. Osomatsu: The Soul’s Takoyaki Party and the Legendary Sleepover Party. The teaser revealed that the second film is scheduled to open in Japanese theaters on July 21, 2023.
The Mr. Osomatsu anime franchise announced in June 2021 that it will get two new anime films with limited theater screenings in Japan in 2022 and 2023. The first new film, Mr. Osomatsu: The Hipipo Tribe and the Glistening Fruit, premiered in Japan in July 2022.
The Mr. Osomatsu anime is inspired by Fujio Akatsuka’s original Osomatsu-kun manga and television anime, which centers on the Matsuno household with six naughty and mischievous sons (who are sextuplets). All of the sextuplets, including the eldest Osomatsu, are all in love with the same girl, Totoko. The original Osomatsu-kun series followed the family when the sons were 10 years old. Mr. Osomatsu re-imagines the original manga and television anime with the sextuplets as adults.
The first season of the Mr. Osomatsu anime premiered in October 2015, and Crunchyroll simulcast the season as it aired in Japan. The second season of the Mr. Osomatsu anime premiered in Japan in October 2017. The Eiga no Osomatsu-san film opened in Japan in March 2019.
The third season premiered in October 2020. Crunchyroll simulcast the season as it aired in Japan. The season’s second cour (quarter of the year) premiered on January 4, 2021.
