Get ready to go go go with Goma-chan! Or something!
Yesterday, Crunchyroll announced that they added the third season of Shonen Ashibe GO! GO! Goma-chan to their Spring 2018 simulcast lineup. The season launched today, at 4:00AM Pacific (7:00AM Eastern) for all subscribers outside of Asia.
Shonen Ashibe GO! GO! Goma-chan is based on Hiromi Morishita’s manga of the same name. Nobuhiro Kondo (Nobunagun, Jewelpet: Magical Change) is directing the show at Bridge and Studio Palette, with Toshimitsu Takeuchi (Saint Seiya: Soul of Gold, Weiß Survive R) taking charge of series composition.
Crunchyroll describes the show as:
A comedy manga, “Shonen Ashibe,” that follows the friendship between baby spotted seal Goma-chan and first-grade student Ashiya Ashibe. First serialized in 1988 and adapted to anime in 1991, the adorable Goma-chan created a massive following and a spotted seal boom. This spring, Goma-chan returns to “Tentere Anime.” A cute, pleasant story of Ashibe and Goma-chan and their unusual school and their neighbors. Sometimes endearing, sometimes bizarre, it’s a fun anime for the whole family!
