The official website for Cyborg 009 Vs. Devilman, the first crossover anime between Shotaro Ishinomori's Cyborg 009 and Go Nagai's Devilman characters, revealed on Friday that the anime's two-week theatrical engagement will open in 10 theaters in Japan on October 17.
Ticket sales begin on Saturday, and the first people to purchase the 1,500 yen (about US$12) tickets will get a special sticker.
Jun Kawagoe (Cyborg 009 The Cyborg Soldier, Mazinkaiser SKL, New Getter Robo) is directing the three-episode original video anime at Bee Media and Actas. Nagai acknowledged that he once thought that these characters are like "water and oil." Nevertheless, he commented that it is "an anime that displays excellent harmony without destroying the mood or sensibilities of each character as they clash."
After the theatrical run, the anime will ship on home video as a three-episode series.
