Earlier today, the official Eiga no Osomatsu-san (Mr. Osomatsu: The Movie) website updated with a new key visual and trailer, as well as details on the film’s plot.
We break the details down below.
The minute-long promo opens with a shot of the Matsuno brothers and others at their high school reunion. At the 12-second mark, the scene cuts to preview a far more grand adventure in a world where not everything as it seems. Character dialogue provides the main story beats for the teaser.
The image features a close-up of the Matsuno brothers on a rooftop. Above them, six familiar, grey-clad individuals gaze down upon them.
The Matsuno brothers attend their high school reunion, where they discover that all of their former classmates have grown into honest-to-goodness adults with corporate jobs and actual futures. Rather than face reality, the sextuplets drown their sorrows in booze, before heading home and passing out. When they awaken, they notice that something is “off”, and find that they somehow wound up in the past. Now, the Matsuno brothers must find their 18-year-old selves to discover the truth of what is going on.
Eiga no Osomatsu-san opens on March 15.

Mr. Osomatsu is based on the late Fujio Akatsuka’s manga of the same name. The first season hit Japanese TV on October 5, 2015. Yoichi Fujita directed the project at Studio Pierrot. Naoyuki Asano provided character designs, while Shu Matsubara handled series composition.
The series ran into a degree of controversy over two episodes that aired early in the season, resulting in the show’s first episode being pulled entirely and episode 3 being heavily altered to avoid specific parodic references.
Mr. Osomatsu 2nd Season aired in the Fall 2017 broadcast season. Yoichi Fujita directed the new season, with Shū Matsubara reprising his role on series composition.
Crunchyroll streamed Mr. Osomatsu and its second season as a simulcast. They describe the series as:
Mr. Osomatsu is based off of the gag manga series Osomatsu-kun by Fujio Akatsuka, and ran from 1962 to 1969. The series features a set of sextuplets, the Matsuno brothers, with Osomatsu being the oldest brother and leader of the group.
Viz Media currently holds the rights to the Mr. Osomatsu anime series.
