The gag manga, Me & Roboco, shared their first visual for their anime adaptation. It will release in the winter of 2023. The anime will premiere on TV Tokyo and its affiliate broadcast channels, according to the Weekly Shounen Jump magazine issue no. 32.
It is a rather hilarious visual, as it showcases the knees of the main character, Roboco, in a colorful collage.
It was also announced that the key visual for the anime will be revealed by September 26, 2022. That is only a few days from now, so fans cannot wait to see more!

Me & Roboco Story
Me & Roboco is about a futuristic time where OrderMaids, or robotic maids are being hired by several households. It is an ongoing trend, and even the young Bondo Taira’s friends, Motsuo and Gachi Gorilla are having one. Bondo got envious when he witnessed Meico, Motsuo’s OrderMaid, who gives excellent massages and drinks. Bondo then asked his mother to have an OrderMaid too.
But the OrderMaid that arrived at Bondo’s doorstep is not what he expected. This OrderMaid named Roboco is muscular and clumsy in doing even the simple household chores. Bondo did not want it at first. But as time goes by, Bondo and his friends will realize that there is more to Roboco than meets the eye.
