Tatsunoko Productions' "full 3DCG" anime Infini-T Force will begin airing this October on NTV and other channels.
Digital Frontier (The Boy and the Beast, Wolf Children) is collaborating on the project as part of the celebration of Tatsunoko Production's 55th anniversary in October 2017. The anime will feature the heroes from four earlier Tatsunoko Productions anime: Tekkaman, the Space Knight, Casshan (Casshern), Gatchaman, and Hurricane Polymar (pictured from left to right in image below). Silhouettes of the characters appear in a promotional image that debuted at the AnimeJapan event last year.
The Infini-T Force anime will have a different story from an earlier Infini-T Force ~Mirai no Byōsen~ (Infini-T Force: Writing Line of the Future) manga by Ukyō Kodachi (Boruto, Naruto - Gaara Hiden: Sajingensō novel). The manga launched in the December 2015 issue of Shogakukan's Monthly Hero's magazine. Kodachi is writing the story, and Tatsuma Ejiri (P2! - Let's Play Pingpong!, World 4u_) is illustrating the series. Shogakukan released the manga's second compiled book volume on October 5.
The story of the original manga begins when a girl named Emi uses a pencil that can grant any wish. Emi gets caught up in the robbery of a convenience store, and her life is in danger. She uses the pencil to wish for a "hero that will save everyone." Four heroes appear in response to Emi's wish to change the course of the future.
