CoroCoro Splatoon anime

First Episode of CoroCoro Splatoon Anime Live

It’s like a live-reading of the manga.

The first episode of the CoroCoro Splatoon anime just released on YouTube; although, I wasn’t able to find the episode on its channel… Either way, you can watch the Splatoon anime adaptation down below. However, it may not be like you previously thought.

CoroCoro announced the anime back in July, but they said it would only air on their YouTube channel. At the time, I admittedly thought they would animate the entire manga, but it looks more like a simple voice over.


Here’s the episode:

Of course, the format makes sense for a low-budget show, but I couldn’t help but hope for actual animation.
