The Great Passage (Japanese: 舟を編む Hepburn: Fune o Amu) is a 2016 Japanese anime television series produced by Zexcs, adapted from the novel written by Shion Miura.[1] The series is directed by Toshimasa Kuroyanagi and written by Takuya Satō, featuring original character designs by Haruko Kumota, adapted character designs by Hiroyuki Aoyama and music by Yoshihiro Ike.[2] It began airing on October 13, 2016 on Fuji TV's Noitamina block.[3]


The publication of a new dictionary called The Great Passage is being constructed. Mitsuya Majime, originally from publisher Genbu Shobo's sales department, has been recruited by the retiring editor of the dictionary department Kouhei Araki to succeed him due to his love and dedication to reading. The dictionary department is known internally as the "money-eating insect," but Mitsuya uses his perseverance and attachment to the words in order to become a great editor.
