posted on by Egan Loo
The film distributor Shochiku began streaming a new promotional video for Tatsunoko's Ippatsu Hicchū!! Devander anime on Wednesday. The original animation video is being produced in commemoration of Tatsunoko's 50th anniversary.
Directed by Hiroshi Sasagawa (Yatterman, Time Bokan, Speed Racer, Gatchaman II) and in collaboration with Kunio Okawara (Gundam, Votoms, Brave franchise), this "gag mecha battle" anime will be released in a set with a mook (magazine-style book). Futago Kamikita and Junki Takegami of the new Yatterman anime are designing the characters and writing the script, respectively.
The story revolves around a spirited, carefree boy named Kazuma Harukaze, who lives with his little sister Sakura and his horse Lovely on a farm within sight of Mt. Fuji. One day, a "meteor" lands nearby, and it turns out to be Hinkeeru — a messenger from Muzanda who has come to warn Earth of a grave danger — and a robot horse named Robony.
The anime is being previewed at the Tatsunoko Pro 50th Anniversary Exhibition, which opened in Tokyo on Wednesday. It will then run on the Kids Station channel on September 22.
