OSOMATSU (?????, Osomatsu-san) is based on Fujio Akatsuka’s original comedy manga, Osomatsu-kun, featuring the six brothers as adults -- now good for nothing, lazy, NEETs (Not currently engaged in Employment, Education or Training). The first season aired from October 2015 to March 2016 on TV Tokyo, and the first volume DVD sold an extraordinary 120,000 copies. In 2016, it was nominated for Japan’s “Buzzword of the Year Prize,” and became a huge nationwide hit. The highly anticipated second season began airing on TV Tokyo on October 2, 2017, at 1:35 AM. (The series is licensed in North America by VIZ Media and streaming on Crunchyroll.) The Ultraman franchise and MR. OSOMATSU both share a common theme of six brothers, naturally leading them to unite. Set in the world of MR. OSOMATSU’s fictional “Akatsuka Ward” in the city of Tokyo, what lengths will the Mr. Ultra-Matsu (?????, Uru Matsu-san) brothers go to protect their peaceful lives as NEETs ?

    MR. OSOMATSU’s character designer, Naoyuki Asano, created the character illustrations for this new collaboration. It features the eldest brother, Osomatsu as Zoffy?Osomatsu-Zoffy), second born Karamatsu as Ultraman?Karamatsu-Man), third born Choromatsu as Ultra Seven?Choromatsu-Seven), fourth born Ichimatsu as Ultraman Jack?Ichimatsu-Jack), fifth born Jyushimatsu as Ultraman Ace ?Jyushimatsu-Ace), and youngest brother Todomatsu as Ultraman Taro ?Todomatsu-Taro). The six brothers each wear an Ultraman-themed hoodie, and strike distinct Ultra Beam poses.

    In addition, the famous strong supporting characters in MR. OSOMATSU have been transformed into Kaiju from the world of Ultraman for the new collaboration. Iyami, Totoko, Dayon, Chibita, and Hatabo, respectively, are fused with Alien Baltan, King Joe, Kanegon, Jamila, and Pigmon, to create Iyami-Baltan, Totoko-King Joe, Dayon-Kanegon, Jami-ta, and Hata-mon.
