When I read the “SAKAMOTO DAYS” manga for the first time, I remember feeling excited by the dynamic action scenes.
I want the “SAKAMOTO DAYS” anime to have that feeling at the core and add the “movement”, “color”, and “sound” of video to add to the energy and speed.
Of course, we won’t forget the humorous moments of the manga, and we are also committed to faithfully portraying Sakamoto’s character as a hitman who cherishes his family and avoids killing others.
All the staff are working hard on this show, so please look forward to the release!

What? “SAKAMOTO DAYS” is getting an anime adaptation? Oh, I’m in it?! What role? Sakamoto Taro?! That’s wonderful!!
I’ve recently put on some weight, so I’m perfect for the role.
Huh? Sakamoto becomes thin too? Yeah, that’s right…
Well, I never take on my roles half-heartedly. I’ll do my best. I appreciate your support!
