Earlier today, TV network NHK announced that an anime adaptation of Sumito Owara’s Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken! (Eizoken ni wa Te o Dasu na!) is in the works. The first staffers were revealed, along with a teaser trailer. We break the details down below.


The promo, which is subtitled in English, pans over various panels from the original manga as an announcement message is superimposed over the imagery.


Masaaki Yuasa (Devilman Crybaby, The Night Is Short, Walk On Girl) will direct the project and handle series composition duties at Science Saru. Naoyuki Asano (Mr. Osomatsu) will provide character designs, while Oorutaichi scores the show’s soundtrack.

NHK will air the title on their NHK General network.
