I am so glad to see it finally getting an anime adaptation. From what I’ve seen so far from this anime, it is shaping up to be really good. So I wanted to talk about it today. If you like stuff like Spy x Family, you will love this too.

So, welcome to another edition of Put This on Your Radar. The series where we take a look at upcoming anime that caught our eye. And this once we are talking about Sakamoto Days. The manga has been ongoing for a while and an anime adaptation was also recently announced. So without any further delay, let’s get right into it.

What do we know about the Sakamoto Days anime?

Well, the anime will be based on the manga of the same name by Yuuto Suzuki. The manga was initially a one-shot in Jump GIGA that came out in December 2019. Then after the success of the one-shot, it began regular serialization in the Weekly Shounen Jump magazine from November 2020. Volume 16 was shipped recently in April and volume 17 is scheduled to ship later this year. The plot is about the greatest hitman, Sakamoto. Who leaves his underground life behind after he falls in love.

Now, he works as a store clerk. Still, some people want him dead but Sakamoto is now forbidden from killing so he has to find creative ways to deal with them. As for the anime, it will be made by TMS Entertainment where Masaki Watanabe will direct it. Also, the best part, Sakata Gintoki, I mean uh- Tomokazu Sugita will be voicing Sakamoto. They couldn’t have found a better voice actor for him if they tried lol. Sugi-bro rocks. The anime is scheduled for release in the winter season of 2025.

My Thoughts

I’d have watched this anime anyway because I know how entertaining the manga is but adding TMS Entertainment and Tomokazu Sugita to the mix is just cherry on top of the cake. TMS Entertainment is an experienced studio, they’ve been making Conan and Lupin III for ages at this point. The teaser PV looks incredible as well. And I don’t think I even need to tell you how much of a big deal Tomokazu Sugita is. Any role he touches instantly becomes iconic and given Sakamoto’s personality, they really couldn’t have found a better voice actor than Sugita for him.

That is all for now!

Let me know what you guys think in the comments. I am very excited about Sakamoto Days. The manga was awesome, the anime looks to be awesome as well and I cannot wait to finally watch it. With that said, I will take my leave here. See ya!
