ShoPro & Spin Master's Tenkai Knights to Run on Cartoon Network
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Tenkai Knights, an animated television series from the licensing company Shogakukan-Shueisha Productions Co., Ltd (ShoPro) and the Canadian toymaker Spin Master Entertainment, will run on Cartoon Network in the United States later this year.
In the story, Guren, Ceylan, Chooki, and Toxsa accidentally fall through an inter-dimensional portal. When they find themselves on the other side, the group are on another world and have assumed the mantles of Bravenwolf, Tributon, Lydendor, and Valorn — otherwise known as the legendary Tenkai Knights.
The anime will run for 52 episodes, and will also have tie-in webisodes and a toy line. The series will be distributed in North and South America by Spin Master, in Europe by VIZ Media Europe, and in Asia by ShoPro.
Spin Master also collaborated with Cartoon Network to release another animated franchise with toys, Bakugan Battle Brawlers.
Japan's Studio Wanpack revealed the existence of the new animated series last month.
