Anime Spotlight Spring - keroro

by Anthony Foronda,
Broadcast Begins March 22, 2014 (JST)


Keroro! A brand-new campaign to invade Pekopon begins!!

This year, the original manga of SGT. FROG meets its 15th year anniversary! And so begins a new flash animation project!

Now SGT. FROG has grown into a 1.5 generation character that parents and children nationwide enjoy, so with a new character design, and new title “Keroro”, a brand-new invasion begins!

Look forward to the new incarnation of Keroro!


Sergeant Keroro, who is ”58th Planet of the Gamma Planetary System, Space Invasion Army Special Tactics Platoon Leader,” infiltrates the Hinata family's home as a preparatory stage to conquer Earth, but is easily captured by Fuyuki and Natsumi due to his inherent incompetence. Keroro ends up staying in the home of the Hinata family thanks to Fuyuki's generosity, or perhaps simply out of his curiosity. As they pass the days Keroro and his four subordinates (or creatures?) together plot to conquer Earth, or maybe not.
