Disney+ is well known for creating original series focused on Star Wars, the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and countless other properties that fall under its giant wheelhouse. While it hasn’t hit the same level when it comes to the anime game as streaming services such as Netflix and Crunchyroll, the platform is starting to step up its game. This November, a brand new anime series created by Science SARU will hit Disney+ via the sequel series, Tatami Time Machine Blues.

If you aren’t familiar with The Tatami Galaxy, it was first released as a novel in Japan in 2004, with the anime adaptation hitting Disney+ this November actually being a sequel to the original story. The Tatami Galaxy did receive an anime adaptation of its own in 2010, produced by Madhouse, most known for anime series including One-Punch Man, Trigun, and Hunter x Hunter to name a few.

The series itself will be produced by Science SARU, the animation house responsible for Devilman Crybaby and Space Dandy, with the studio previously working alongside Disney+ on the long-awaited anthology series, Star Wars: Visions. The new anime sequel will have six episodes hitting the streaming service this November, showing how Disney is apparently moving forward with a continued focus on anime when it comes to its ever-expanding library of titles.

If you haven’t heard of Tatami Time Machine Blues, the new anime coming to Disney+ next month has the following description, with the streaming service giving fans a rundown of this time travel epic: 

“It is August 12th. After the remote control to his boarding house’s only air conditioning unit is inadvertently destroyed by spilled cola, “I” devises a plan to return to yesterday in a time machine to recover the remote before it breaks. However, his prankster friend Ozu cannot resist playing with past events, even if it means bringing the universe to the brink of destruction. Now “I” finds himself racing through time to avoid disaster.”
