Psychic Squad spinoff anime featuring Kyōsuke Hyōbu as main character to air on January 7

The official website for TV Tokyo began streaming a TV commercial for the upcoming The Unlimited - Hyōbu Kyōsuke anime. The video features the anime's opening theme, "LAST RESOLUTION" by Emblem of THE UNLIMITED. The main character of the new anime is Hyōbu, the psychic outlaw (played by Koji Yusa) who was betrayed many years in the past by humans.

The anime spinoff is being animated by Manglobe instead of Synergy SP, who animated the original Psychic Squad anime. Character designs are being done by Jun Takagi (Romeo × Juliet, Submarine 707R) instead of Psychic Squad's Takahiro Kagami. Sayaka Ohara will replace Saeko Chiba's original role as Momiji, one of the psychic orphans Hyōbu adopted when she was young.

The spin-off anime will begin airing on January 7, 2013. Shishō Igarashi (Deadman Wonderland episode director, Armored Trooper Votoms Case;Irvine director), and Shinichi Inotsume (first Zettai Karen Children, Hayate the Combat Butler, Sket Dance) is in charge of the series scripts. Kenji Teraoka (Armored Trooper Votoms Case;Irvine, Blood+, Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion, Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex) is the mechanical designer. Kotaro Nakagawa (first Zettai Karen Children, Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion, Hayate the Combat Butler) is scoring the soundtrack, and Yukio Nagasaki (C – Control – The Money and Soul of Possibility, Halo Legends) is the sound director.

The original Zettai Karen Children anime aired in 2008 in Japan, and is licensed by Sentai Filmworks for digital and home video release.
