Shizuki Fujisawa’s Yuzuki-san Chi no Yon Kyōdai manga is finally getting a TV anime, and it’s set to premiere sometime in Fall this year! The good news was shared on a newly-opened website on Friday. A teaser visual for the anime was also revealed, along with the production’s key staff members.
Hongo Mitsuru (Ascendance of a Bookworm) is directing the anime adaptation at studio Shuka, with Orie Tanaka (Natsume’s Book of Friends) designing the characters.
Launched in 2018 in Shogakukan’s shōjo manga magazine Betsucomi, Yuzuki-san Chi no Yon Kyōdai (The Four Brothers of the Yuzuki Household) is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Shizuki Fujisawa. The series is a coming-of-age manga that follows the lives of four brothers.
Online manga database My Anime List describes its plot as follows:
The Yuzuki family, which consists of four brothers, lost their parents two years ago. Hayato, the eldest son, is a hard worker and the pillar of the family. Mikoto, the second son, is calm and collected, but he has a soft spot for his younger brother Minato, whom he adores and thinks is cute. Minato, the third son, is energetic and adores his brothers, but he is clumsy and awkward. Gakuto, the fourth son, is a studious and mature first-grader who is often referred to as a “wise man.” The manga depicts the four brothers’ daily lives as they navigate their family, school, and community.
The manga currently enjoys wide popularity and even won the 66th Shogakukan Manga Prizes in the shōjo category in 2020.
Additional details about the upcoming anime adaptation are to be announced at a later date.
