Chinese Himouto! Umaru-chan TV Series Announced
Another beloved anime series will soon be making its transition to the 3D realm in the form of an upcoming live action TV series, enraging many fans as such “bastardizations” of anime tend to do, and with an added twist as Himouto! Umaru-chan becomes the target of China rather than Hollywood or Japan’s own TV studios.
A new IP deal announced by Shueisha has permitted international companies to adapt their content, causing China to immediately pick up on the success of the otaku-pandering series and attempt to profit off of it in true corporate fashion.
Apparently work on the adaptation is already underway and will debut in China during 2017.
