Tatami Time Machine Blues is Now Available To Watch On Hulu


This series was originally expected to debut on Disney Plus but has now made its debut on Hulu, and that’s Tatami Time Machine Blues.

The streaming company announced on Tuesday that it would be bringing the complete first season of the television anime based on the novel written by Tomihiko Morimi, titled Tatami Time Machine Blues, as a Hulu Original Series.

Last month, Disney Plus announced that it would also stream the anime’s complete first season in the U.S. on Wednesday. However, the company’s website has since updated its U.S. listings, and they no longer include Tatami Time Machine Blues.

Tatami Time Machine Blues had six episodes released weekly on Disney+ on September 14th in Japan, with the fifth and sixth episodes released together on October 12th. The series was also being compiled into a film, which was released in Japan on September 30th, for a limited-three-week span. Disney+ Hotstar also began streaming the anime in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Indonesia, Malaysia Singapore, and Thailand in September.

Sonny Boy director Shingo Natsume directed Tatami Time Machine Blues at Science SARU, taking over from Masaaki Yuasa, who directed The Tatami Galaxy and spin-off anime film The Night Is Short, Walk On Girl. Tatami Time Machine Blues is available now on Hulu.

“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-traveling student arrives from 25 years in the future, prompting the protagonist to borrow his time machine to snatch the remote control from the past before it breaks.”
