Funimation Offers Time Bokan 24 Anime for Digital Purchase
posted on by Karen Ressler
Funimation is now offering the first season of the Time Bokan 24 anime for digital purchase on Amazon. The first 23 episodes of the 24-episode show are available with Japanese audio. ANN reached out to Funimation about the missing 24th episode, but Funimation did not respond by press time.
Funimation offers several shows — such as Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya 3rei!!, Sound! Euphonium, and Hitori no Shita the outcast — as digital purchases only, and has not released these titles on home video or via its FunimationNow streaming service.
Crunchyroll describes the story:
The history in our textbooks are all wrong?! In the 24th century, humankind accomplished the invention of a time machine, “Time Bokan”. As they discover the truth about history, they realize that the history written in their textbooks are all wrong! To correct their knowledge of history, the government developed an organization called JKK (Space-time Administrative Bureau). Our hero Tokio is recruited by Karen, a girl from the future to join the JKK. Together they travel through time to discover the true history, along with fighting the “Akudarma” a villainous group whose goal is to prevent the discovery of the truth!
Takayuki Inagaki (World Break: Aria of Curse for a Holy Swordsman, Rosario + Vampire) directed the series, and Yoichi Kato (Yo-kai Watch, Aikatsu!) was in charge of series composition. Akihiro HIno (Yo-kai Watch, Inazuma Eleven story) was the creative producer. Level-5 contributed the original character and mechanical designs and planned the project with Tatsunoko Productions. Kunio Okawara (Mobile Suit Gundam, Yatterman, Armored Trooper Votoms) worked on the anime's mechanical design.
A sequel anime series, Time Bokan: The Villains Strike Back, premiered in October 2017.
