Sakamoto Days Confirms Its Anime For 2025

A press release confirmed the production of an anime adaptation for Yuuto Suzuki's written and illustrated "Sakamoto Days." The statement included production details and listed that the premiere is confirmed for the Winter-2025 (January-March) season in Japan.

It should be noted that the production of this project had previously been leaked through an official Netflix publication, but there is no mention of the platform anywhere in this statement.

For his part, Yuuto Suzuki began publishing the manga through Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in November 2020 and it is still in serialization. Suzuki is also the author of other one-shot works such as "Locker Room" and "Garaku". In fact, "Sakamoto Days" comes from a one-shot he published in 2019, making it his first serialized manga.

Synopsis of Sakamoto Days

Tarou Sakamoto was considered the greatest hitman of all time. Feared by many, he was at the top of the underground world until he met and fell in love with a woman. As a result, Sakamoto gave up his life of crime and now works as a shop assistant. Leaving his murky past behind is more difficult than Sakamoto first imagined. Many of his former rivals and partners don't believe he's really gone out of business and show up hoping to take it down. With the prohibition of killing, Sakamoto must find creative ways to subdue his enemies and prevent them from harming his family, his shop, and the small town in which he resides.
