Based on the information given in the trailer, the anime adaptation will air in July 2022.
Uncle from Another World is a story about Takafumi’s uncle who wakes up from his coma after 17 years. Takafumi discovers that while in his coma, his uncle was actually living in another world as a hero. Takafumi must now take care of his magical and video game-enthusiast uncle. Naturally, he must also tell his uncle of all the developments that take place in the world.
Meanwhile, he also deals with his uncle’s stories about his life there. In the trailer, we find out that his uncle had met a “tsundere” elf there who followed him around. However, his uncle had no idea what a “tsundere” was as he went into a coma before the term got popular. He thought of the way she treated him as mere “abuse,” not knowing that many people would consider him lucky for experiencing it.
