Uncle from Another World synopsis

The story follows a college student named Takafumi Takaoka, who picks up his middle-aged uncle from the hospital when he awakens from a 17-year coma after being hit by a truck. Soon, Takafumi realizes that something isn’t quite right with his uncle when he starts speaking an unrecognizable language and has the ability to use magic spells. Oh, and he also has a great love for video games.

Here’s the synopsis via AnimeNewsNetwork below:

​Seventeen years ago, Takafumi’s uncle fell into a coma, but now he’s back like a man risen from his grave. Soon, Takafumi discovers two bizarre things: His uncle treasures video games above all else, and, while comatose, he was actually transported to another world as some heroic guardian! Now, not only does Takafumi have to room with an uncle who is literally magical, he also has to catch the guy up on two decades of history—smartphones, high-speed internet, modern anime tropes…and the traumatic outcome of the ’90s console war!
