North American manga and anime distributor Viz Media announced on Sunday that it will stream the Zetman television anime series as it airs in Japan.
Masakazu Katsura is known for romance and comedy stories such as Video Girl Ai, DNA², and I''s, but he also created the decade-long Zetman hero action manga series in 2002. The story centers around Jin, a homeless boy whose true form is the new superhuman lifeform "ZET," and an industrial magnate's heir named Kōga with his own secret.
Osamu Nabeshima (D.Gray-man, Saint Seiya: The Lost Canvas) is directing the project at TMS Entertainment. Atsuhiro Tomioka (Inazuma Eleven, Samurai 7, Pokémon) is writing the scripts, and Hirotoshi Takaya (Eyeshield 21, Puppet Princess/Karakuri no Kimi, Project ARMS) is designing the characters.
The anime will premiere on April 2.
