New Casshern Anime Tentatively Titled Casshern Sins
posted on by Egan Loo
Takara Tomy displayed an exhibit at this week's Tokyo Toy Show that included a section about Casshern Sins, the tentatively titled remake of the Shinzo Ningen Casshan anime. The anime studio Madhouse had already revealed at the Tokyo International Anime Fair 2008 in March that it is working on the project; at the time, the project was just called Casshern. Tatsunoko Production, another anime company that recently became a subsidiary of Takara Tomy, created the original anime about a cyborg who rises against the robotic armies that have subjugated all of humanity. The new version will have director Shigeyasu Yamauchi (Saint Seiya, Boys Over Flowers, Dragon Ball Z movies), character designer Yoshihiko Umakoshi (Berserk, Mushi-Shi, Guyver: The Bioboosted Armor), and series script supervisor Yasuko Kobayashi (Claymore, Witchblade, Shakugan no Shana).
Streamline Pictures and ADV Films both released the 1993 Casshan Robot Hunter animated video remake in North America, and Go Fish Pictures released Kazuaki Kiriya's 2004 live-action movie remake.
