The official Japanese website for the anime adaptation of Makoto Kubota's Tentai Senshi Sunred comedy manga has launched with confirmation that the television anime series will premiere in Japan in October. The story revolves around the hero Sunred's battles against General Vamp and his shadowy group of minions in a spoof of classic Japanese anime and live-action special-effects shows. The manga has been running in Square Enix's Young Gangan magazine since 2005. Six volumes of the manga have been compiled and published.
Seiji Kishi (Galaxy Angel Rune, Magikano, Seto no Hanayome) will direct the animators at AIC ASTA. Makoto Uezu (School Days, Seto no Hanayome, Utawarerumono) is overseeing the scripts, while Kazuaki Morita (Seto no Hanayome) is designing the characters. Shun Takagi (The Prince of Tennis musical's Fukawa) will play the title character, and Makiko Nabei (Seto no Hanayome's Ren Seto) will play his sweetheart Kayoko. The comedians Yamada Louis LIII and Higuchi-kun of the Higedanshaku comedy duo will assume the roles of General Vamp and Minion #1, respectively.
