SSSS.Gridman‘s English dub will debut on FunimationNow on October 6. The series will begin airing in Japan on the same day.
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.
The team of Hiroshi Maruyama, Ichiro Itano, and Shinji Nishikawa are designing the show’s kaiju.
OxT will perform opening theme song UNION, while Maaya Uchida performs closing theme youthful beautiful.
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 made its début on Japanese TV in 1993. The series was adapted by DiC into Superhuman Samurai Syber Squad, which aired on western TV in 1994.
