Phantom Anime "Get a Grip, Tsuyoshi!" Returns to Japanese TV
After an absence of a quarter century that caused some fans to propose a conspiracy theory that the show never really existed at all, Tsuyoshi Shikkari Shinasai (“Get a Grip, Tsuyoshi!”) – a TV anime based on the family comedy manga by Kiyoshi Nagamatsu about a particularly put-upon youngest son – is returning to Japanese TV with a rebroadcast on Animax that begins in October of 2017.
Directed by Shin Misawa and with animation by Studio Comet, Tsuyoshi Shikkari Shinasai ran for 112 episodes from 1992 – 1994. The series was the voice acting debut of Hiroshi Kamiya, and it was popular enough to spawn a movie and a video game spin-off, but it hasn’t been rebroadcast until now, leading some Netizens to insist that the whole thing was a “shared hallucination”.
The story of Tsuyoshi Shikkari Shinasai follows Tsuyoshi, the youngest son of the Igawa family. Everyone in the neighborhood thinks that Tsuyoshi is a good-for-nothing musclehead, but in fact he’s a dutiful young man who looks after all of the cooking, cleaning, laundry, etc. because his father is always at work and his mother and two elder sisters are lazy and incompetent.
Tsuyoshi Shikkari Shinasai will broadcast on Animax on Tuesdays during the 22:00 time slot (10:00 PM JST) beginning on October 31, 2017.
