An anime adaptation of Kôji Kumeta's Katteni Kaizō gag manga has been green-lit. Akiyuki Shinbo will direct the anime at the studio SHAFT as he did for the anime of Kumeta's Sayonara Zetsubō Sensei manga.

In the story, Kaizō Katsu is a former student of the "Genius Cram School" ("Tensai Juku") but his childhood friend Umi Natori accidentally turned him into an idiot (and possibly insane) by injuring his head. Kaizō's crazy ideas caused an explosion that forced the Genius Cram School to shut down. Even years later when Kaizō is in high school, his former classmates have come looking for payback. So, Kaizō, Umi, and the other members of their high school science club are shown in the most surreal situations.

The manga ran in Shogakukan's Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine from 1998 to 2004. The 26 original volumes are being recompiled into 14 volumes for a new reprint edition to mark Kumeta's 20th anniversary as a manga creator.

In a related development, the Sayonara, Zetsubou-Sensei anime franchise is getting three Blu-ray boxes between March and July.

...this is going to be interesting.

A lot of the gags in Kaizou are filled with 90s pop culture references (I don't think many Japanese high school girls are very crazy about The Bridges of Madison County anymore), not to mention 90s slang. The manga is funny as heck, though, so I imagine there will be a good way to work around that.
