WIT Studio, one of the renowned anime studios, has just announced its upcoming project. What is the next project about? Underwears. Underwears of oni, to be more specific.
Onipan!, an original anime, will premiere this year and explain how underwears can save the reputation of the onis.
Does it have any mysterious power? If so, why does it have to be tiger-print undergarments? The creators have some explaining to do.
The Onipan! anime will be released in April 2022. The series is a product of AAO Project, AOI Pro, Amuse, and Origamix Partners’ collaboration.
A new trailer has been revealed, which further highlights the utter absurdity of the situation:
The trailer starts with a narrator introducing the three main characters: Tsutsuji, Himawari, and Tsuyukusa. Then she says that it is the story of a pair of underwear.
All the protagonists are equally flabbergasted at this declaration. Even you would be surprised if suddenly a pair of boxers became the main character in your life.
A fresh visual has also been revealed to tease the prized possession of the entire anime.
The visual also teases the nature of each character. Tsutsuji is a curious oni with a friendly personality. She loves city life and fashion.
Himawari is the mischievous one who hangs around with animals. She does whatever she wants without thinking much and has the highest number of skills in the group.
From cooking to cleaning and washing, you name it, and she can do it.
Tsuyukusa is a lonely beautiful girl who is too lazy to move and doesn’t like ruining her cool image. Her motto is “I hope I can do it tomorrow, if not today.”
Cast members behind the anime’s three crazy protagonists include:
