Sakamoto Days is the latest Shounen Jump action-comedy series.
The series follows a former gangster who leaves his old life behind when he falls in love.
Gangsters in Japan are called Yakuza.
Yakuza comedy anime is getting a lot of attention right now.
This is mainly due to the success of the anime “The way of the Househusband”.
With the increasing popularity of the series, we can expect more adaptations.
Viewers have received the series very well, and the manga has also received good reviews from critics.
If you are a fan of action-comedy series, you will love this series.
The series combines action and comedy very well.
It uses “dark comedy” very subtly.
The overall feel of the show never gets very serious or dark.
All the main characters are very well refined, which adds to the fun.
The action scenes and visual aesthetics of the series are also top-notch.
All of these elements make up the possibility of a good anime adaptation.
Around 2 weeks ago Yuta Momiyama, Deputy Editor-In-Chief of Shonen Jump+/MANGA Plus by Shueisha wrote a blog post about how MANGA Plus data is used for determining which manga titles get anime adaptations.
About Sakamoto Days
Yuto Suzuki is a writer and illustrator.
The author’s previous works include Garaku and Locker Room.
The manga began in November 2020 and has sold over 500,000 copies of the fifth volume.
The series has won the prestigious U-Next manga award.
One of the main reasons for this raging success is the premise.
So the premise follows Taro Sakamoto as the protagonist.
He used to be a legendary assassin.
But faith had something else going for it.
He fell in love with Aoi.
They both start living simple life as convenience store workers.
As a result, Sakamoto grew a father’s body, unlike his previous avatar.
And she lost weight dramatically during difficult situations.
But his dark past did not leave him.
There were various people who still respected him as a murderer while others were out to take his life.
Sakamoto Days Anime Adaptation Will Happen?
Given the high success of the series, there is a high chance that Sakamoto Days will get an anime adaptation.
But unfortunately, there has been no official announcement regarding the anime adaptation.
And I feel that we will be able to get some official news on this.
Generally, each Shounen Jump series is animated after 100 chapters.
The series currently has 55 chapters.
So we can expect an announcement sometime in late 2022 or early 2023.
But this can only happen if the series continues to be successful.
Apart from manga sales, viewing on the official website can also be considered for success.
Manga Plus is the official online platform.
The series may have 12 to 13 episodes when animated.
