posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The official website of Tatsunoko Productions' upcoming Time Bokan 24 television anime unveiled a new visual on Thursday. The visual features the anime's three villains: Bimajo, Tsubuyakky, and Suzukky.
The series will premiere on October 1 on NTV and Yomiuri TV, and will air every Saturday at 5:30 p.m. (airing in what is now Ace Attorney's timeslot).
The cast includes:
- Akihisa Wakayama as Tokio
- Akari Kitō as Calen
- Eri Kitamura as Bimajo
- Hiroaki Hirata as Tsubuyakky
- Kenta Miyake as Suzukky
The story will center on Tokio, a junior high student living in the present time who is suddenly made a member of the 24th century's Space-Time Administration Bureau. Immediately, he learns that the history he has learned in the textbooks is wrong, and there is a more interesting version of history where the peerless beauty Cleopatra is actually the comic duo of Cleo and Patra, and Momotarō is more of an ogre than actual ogres. Together with his teammate Calen, they use the 24 Bokan Mecha to search for the True History.
The Bokan Mecha will be able to transform and combine. The villains in the story include Bimajo, Tsubuyakkiy and Suzukky, who are employed by History Paradise — the world's largest textbook company — to keep history as it was written in the textbooks.
Takayuki Inagaki (World Break: Aria of Curse for a Holy Swordsman, Rosario + Vampire) is directing the series, and Yoichi Kato (Yo-kai Watch, Aikatsu!) is in charge of series composition. Akihiro HIno (Yo-kai Watch, Inazuma Eleven story) is the creative producer. Level-5 is contributing the original character and mechanical designs and planning the project with Tatsunoko Productions. Kunio Okawara (Mobile Suit Gundam, Yatterman, Armored Trooper Votoms) is working on the anime's mechanical design.
