Uncle from another world was originally a manga created by Hotondoshindeiru which began serialization on Kadokawa’s ComicWalker website in June 2018. The series revolves around a boy’s uncle named Takafumi Takaoka. After being hit by a truck, Takafumi’s uncle finds himself in a coma for 17 years. However, he wakes up one day claiming that he was transported to another world and served as its heroic guardian. After discovering that his uncle’s story is true, Takafumi tries to adjust to living with his uncle, who frequently uses his magical powers while trying to reintegrate into modern society.

The series is produced by Studio Atelier Pontdarc, a relatively new animation studio founded in 2020. Shigeki Kawai, known for his work on the naruto franchise, directs the series. Kenta Ihara (Vinland Saga) is in charge of both the script and the composition of the series. Yoshito Takamine serves as the series’ art director, while Kazuhiro Ota designs the characters. Kenichiro Suehiro creates the music.
