The update comes right at the heels of the May issue of the magazine that claimed that the highly anticipated series was officially slated for a 2024 release on Netflix, with the streaming giants reportedly acquiring the rights.

Things Are Not Looking Good For Sakamoto Days

Although the news was initially well-received by the fans, it comes with a fair share of problems. Fans are engaged in an internal conflict while they digest the news, given that the announcement itself is weak.

That’s not all though. Fans have pointed out that despite stating a 2024 release, there is no confirmed animation studio, no first look or key visual, and no voice cast either. The anime seems to have no foundation at the moment and little to no time for it to be produced.

If a major studio were to pick up Sakamoto Days, the animators would be overworked and the quality of all the animes that get mixed up in the chaos would suffer. Furthermore, there’s very little possibility that the future anime will be deemed promising at this point without any solid info.

Fans Are Relieved As Sakamoto Days Gets Removed From License Global’s Listing

Although it is still unclear whether the anime is still slated for 2024 or has been delayed following the removal of Sakamoto Days from License Global’s listing, fans seem to be relieved about the news nonetheless.

While the news in itself may come as a surprise to fans, it is the fact that Netflix has even picked the anime up that is more peculiar. The reason for this hesitation comes from the fact that there is yet to be an official announcement about the series.

Sakamoto Days is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Yuto Suzuki. It has been serialized in Shueisha’s shonen manga magazine Weekly Shonen Jump since November 2020, with 16 tankobon volumes as of April 2024.
