The original net animation (ONA) Yojohan Time Machine Blues will be available to stream on Disney+ in Japan.
Join the protagonist and his friend on a crazy journey to rescue their broken remote control through the magic of time travel. The series is also getting a theatrical release which condenses the first five episodes into a movie. The sixth episode will remain exclusive to streaming.
Yojouhan Time Machine Blues takes place during a sweltering midsummer day when Ozu, the protagonist’s “terrible friend,” accidentally drowns the only remote control for the air conditioning unit in their apartment. While they discuss their predicament with Akashi, the protagonist’s raven-haired love interest, a sloppily-dressed time-travelling student arrives from 25 years in the future, prompting the protagonist to borrow his time machine in an effort to snatch the remote control from the past before it breaks.
An English release for Yojohan Time Machine Blues has yet to be announced, but Disney owns the “global” distribution rights. So any English release will likely still be confined to the platform.
