Let’s samurize, guys! (Can’t stop, won’t stop making references to its predecessor!)
Earlier today, the official SSSS.Gridman anime website updated with a new teaser trailer and key visual, as well as the show’s main cast and crew.
We break the details down below.
The minute-long trailer introduces the main characters, as well as the lead character of Gridman. A piano melody plays to set the tone of a series of animated cuts.
The image features the major cast members just kicking back in a classroom. A massive monster can be seen through the window.
The series will star the following:
- Yūta Hibiki: Yūya Hirose
- Gridman: Hikaru Midorikawa
- Shō Utsumi: Sōma Saitō
- Rokka Takarada: Yume Miyamoto
- Akane Shinjō: Reina Ueda
SSSS.Gridman hits Japanese TV this fall.
Akira Amemiya (Ninja Slayer, Inferno Cop) was tapped to direct the project at studios Trigger and Tsuburaya Productions. Masayuki Gotou (Maze: the Mega-Burst Space, Geisters) will design the Gridman character. Keiichi Hasegawa (Rage of Bahamut: Genesis) is in charge of series composition for the project.
Gridman.SSSS was first unveiled at Anime Expo 2017. At the event, the team stressed that the plot is unrelated to classic tokusatsu show Denkō Chōjin Gridman.
Denkō Chōjin Gridman debuted made its debut on Japanese TV in 1993. The series was adapted by DiC into Superhuman Samurai Syber Squad, which aired on western TV in 1994.
