It's not Mononoke, but who cares

I'd missed this when it was announced a month ago: Kenji Nakamura and other Mononoke staff are coming together again at Toei. This time they're adapting a short story collection by Hideo Okuda, titled Kuchu Buranko (Trapeze), set to air this fall season. One summary of the novel I've found online: "In modern Japan, people visit 'doctors of neurology' rather than therapists. Dr. Ichiro Irabu is an eccentric neurologist with an injection fetish, an Oedipus complex and a green Porsche, known for making patients much worse before they get better."

I'm sold.

  1. I've heard of the novel, but not read. Definitely sounds like an interesting project.
