posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The anime studio Tatsunoko Productions revealed during the AnimeJapan 2018 convention on Saturday that it is working on an original anime project to commemorate its 55th anniversary. The text on the teaser visual reads: "A girl who only had her smile to protect her, a girl whose smile will save the world."
Tatsunoko Productions' Infini-T Force franchise also celebrates the company's 55th anniversary. A manga for the franchise by writer Kodachi (Boruto, Naruto: Gaara Hiden - Sajingensō novel) and artist Ejiri (P2! - Let's Play Pingpong!, World 4u_) launched first in Shogakukan's Monthly Hero's magazine in 2015. Udon is releasing the manga. The television anime series had its world premiere at Anime Expo last July, and began airing in Japan last October. The project also spawned a film that opened on February 24.
Viz Media licensed the Infini-T Force television anime and film. Viz Media's Infini-T Force license includes digital streaming, electronic sell-through, home video, and merchandise for North America, Latin America and Oceania. The license also includes theatrical distribution for the film.
Tatsunoko Productions previously produced the Ippatsu Hicchū!! Devander anime to celebrate its 50th anniversary.
