Netflix has shared the first look at what to expect from Uncle from Another World with a new trailer and poster! Hotondoshindeiru’s original manga series has been a pretty big hit since the series hit the pages of Kadokawa Shoten’s ComicWalker back in 2018, and it was first announced last year that the series was going to get picked up for a full anime adaptation of its own. While Kadokawa might have a lot of hooks in the Isekai world, this series has gotten a lot of fans’ attention by taking this formula and twisting it back around to the real world.
Directed by Shigeki Kawai at Atelier Pontdarc, Uncle from Another World stars Takehito Koyasu as the titular uncle, Jun Fukuyama as Takafumi, Mikako Komatsu as Fujimiya, Haruka Tomatsu as Elf, Aoi Yuki as Mabel, Aki Toyosaki as Alicia, Kenichi Suzumura as Edger, Nobuhiko Okamoto as Raiga, and Hisako Kanemoto as Sawae.

Uncle from Another World will be hitting Japan beginning on July 6th, but has yet to set its worldwide release date as of this writing. Netflix teases the new series as such, “Autumn 2017… Hit by a truck when he was 17 years old, Takafumi’s uncle suddenly awakens from a coma that lasted 17 years. When Takafumi visits him in the hospital, he sees his uncle muttering nonsense, declaring that he has returned from another world named ‘GRAN-BAHAMAL.’ …Clearly, his uncle has lost his marbles. Takafumi is lost for words, but his uncle proves his claims of being in another dimension by using some magic.”
The description continues with, “Deciding to use his uncle’s powers to earn a living, and with no other relatives to call upon, Takafumi takes him in and they begin to share an apartment together. While living with his uncle, Takafumi learns of his fantastical adventures and his boundless love of SEGA video games. But at times, his uncle’s lonely and cruel experiences fill Takafumi with both joy and sadness. Two men of different generations work hard to be video content creators in this new and exciting otherwordly comedy set in a corner of an apartment complex!”
