posted on 2013-02-22 22:44 EST
The India-produced Ninja Hattori-kun animated television series remake will premiere in Japan on May 13. The remake had been slated to premiere in Japan last summer. The original Ninja Hattori-kun anime debuted in India in 2006, and the remake premiered on the Nick India channel in May 2012.
The 26-episode series was produced by Shinei Animation, a wholly owned subsidiary of TV Asahi, and Reliance MediaWorks, a major Indian production company. It was pitched to Asian broadcasters last year. The project is the first new animated program in nearly 25 years for Ninja Hattori-kun, the comedy action manga/anime franchise from Doraemon co-creator Motoo Abiko or "Fujiko Fujio (A)."
