Fune wo Amu (The Great Passage)

Announced for Fall 2016. New Noitamina anime for the Fall lineup. TV anime titled Fune wo Amu (The Great Passage).

Plot Summary:
Quote:
Mitsuya Majime (Ryuhei Matsuda) is an unsuccessful salesman. But his love of reading and dedication, as well as a post-graduate degree in linguistics, catches the eyes of Masashi Nishioka (Joe Odagiri) and Kouhei Araki (Kaoru Kobayashi), dictionary editors who are seeking a replacement for Araki himself, as his wife is sick and he would like to spend more time by her bedside.

With Majime on the editing team, the group plans to produce a new dictionary called "Daitokai" (The Great Passage/大渡海) [2] which would bridge the gap between people and the sea of words and would take years to complete.

Back at his home, the Sou-Un-Sou Rooming House, Majime meets Kaguya Hayashi (Aoi Miyazaki), his landlady's granddaughter who has just returned from culinary school. He is struck by her beauty. Upon discovering this, the chief editor Matsumoto (Go Kato) asks Majime to write the definition for the word "Love".

Visual looks like BL but description hints it may not be the one. There was live-action in 2013 BTW.

Dictionary editors, eh? Now there's a job you don't often see in anime. Or anywhere else for that matter.

Color me curious.

Don't get too excited. That summary/cast was for the live action. Though, there WAS one anime that Joe Odagiri did voice acting for, if I remember correctly... maybe you can hope. I think it's really unlikely that he'd end up in the anime for this, though.

I always meant to read the novel, I guess I'll watch the anime before I do.

ETA:
Starring Sakurai Takahiro, Kamiya Hiroshi and Sakamoto Maaya. Yep, definitely watching before reading the novel.

That was excellent, a real hark-back to the vintage days of Noitamina, and the kind of show they really ought to be doing, anime for grown-ups.

Majime the awkward salesman, not suited for the sales job, a real bookworm who lives alone in a little flat, gets recruited to a job nobody else in the company wants but which suits him down to the ground.

Excellent show. just hope the usual Noitamina length can do the story justice.

Ep 01

What a very curious, odd and interesting little series the first episode showed it to be! In many ways the series feels to me like a reflection of the lead character.

Hmm. I am very, very interested in this one. In some ways it is even ... fascinating.

Good start for the first episode.

I like the realism dynamics and the characters introduced so far. The OP song also works quite well with its style. Mitsuya is an interesting character with knowledge and I'm curious to learn more about him.

The office environment looks realistic as well and animation is fluid with character designs looking simple yet credible.

Excited to see more of this, there's quite a bit of potential here.

Definitely keeping tabs on this one.

Yes, this was another very strong first episode. I already like Majime a lot (ladies and gentlemen: Sakurai Takahiro), I love the dictionary theme, and I must award the staff a huge plus point for the lovingly animated kitty. I think I'll like this story.

I had good expectations for this show and Episode 1 met it. The concept of building up a dictionary and probably, in this show, one that aspires to an OED-equivalent for the Japanese language. The search for meaning and clarity. This show spoke to me.

The scene where Araki, the soon-to-retire dictionary editor, walked into the Sales department's room and saw the words written all around float up as he scanned the room. Then, as he came to spot Majime placing the file back into the book cabinet carefully as the words settled on the spine of the file and knew he had probably found his man. Loved this.

I'm smitten.
