AIC Adapts Aoshima's Atoranjaa Robot Into Anime Short

15-minute super robot short sold at commercial area of Comic Market next month

The official blog of the plastic model maker Aoshima announced on Monday that the studio AIC is adapting Aoshima's super robot Atoranjaa into an anime short. G-mode will sell the 15-minute project on DVD at the commercial area of Comic Market 81 at the Tokyo Big Sight Center next month. The 4,000-yen (about US$51) DVD will come in a plastic model-style package with a promotional video, a promotional video for the Justeen anime, and 10 bonus menko game cards.

Singer Akira Kushida (Kinnikuman, Toriko, various Super Sentai series) and composer Michiaki Watanabe (Mazinger Z , Great Mazinger, Getter Robo Go) are responsible for the theme song.

Aoshima originally created Atoranjaa in 1975 as a plastic model of a super robot without an anime. It does have a Gattai Robot Atoranjaa Tiger Shark manga, and it notably made a cameo in last year's Oreimo anime series.
