Mission: The Yozakura Family has officially announced that it will finally be getting its own anime adaptation, and the original creator behind it all is helping to celebrate the big announcement with some special new art! Fans may have noticed that many of the 2019-2020 hits from Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine are starting to get their own anime adaptations, and this is going to be a good move for the quieter hits of the magazine. The anime adaptation gives the chance for even more fans to catch up with a particular series, and Mission: The Yozakura Family would probably be a perfect example of that.
Taking the stage at Jump Festa 2023 this past weekend in Japan, Mission: The Yozakura Family has announced that they now have plans for an official anime adaptation coming in 2024. That may be a long way off at the time of writing, but series creator Hitsuji Gondaira is celebrating the announcement with some fun art that imagines the titular family checking out their anime adventure.
