The good folks from streaming giant Crunchyroll have sent us details about Dandadan arriving on Crunchyroll. The anime version will be adapted by Science SARU, who also recently made Scott Pilgrim Takes Off, Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken! and Tatami Time Machine Blues.

The quirky nature of the manga makes it an excellent fit for the type of show Science SARU normally create, it feels like a natural pairing.

The show is due to hit the streaming service this October 2024. Interestingly, Crunchyroll are calling it Dan Da Dan, while manga publishers Viz have localised it as Dandadan (without the spaces).

You can watch the the official subtitled trailer on YouTube.

We're really looking forward to this series as Science SARU always produce such amazing anime.
