The official website for the anime adaptation of Asaki Nakama's Daimidaler the Sound Robot (Kenzen Robo Daimidaler) manga began streaming the first promotional video for the series on Wednesday. In the video, the Daimidaler is described as a secret weapon with great power. The narrator also orders the “prince of black steel” to crush his enemies.
The website also updated with three new cast members and additional staff:
- Natsuki Hanae as Shōma Amaku
- Aya Suzaki as Likantz Seaberry
- Shizuka Ishigami as Namu Mayu
The series will reunite the staff of the High School DxD television anime series, with director Tetsuya Yanagisawa (Heaven's Lost Property the Movie: The Angeloid of Clockwork, Destiny of the Shrine Maiden, Shattered Angels), scriptwriter Takao Yoshioka (Ikki Tousen, Elfen Lied), character designer and chief animation director Junji Goto (School Days), production company GENCO, and animation studio TNK (Ikki Tōsen: Xtreme Xecutor).
The comedy centers around a high school boy named Kōichi Madanbashi (played by Nobunaga Shimazaki) who has Hi-ERo particles, the power source to operate the robotic weapon Daimidaler. With the help of Kyōko Sonan (Yōko Hikasa) from the mysterious Prince Beauty Parlor organization, he stands up against the Penguin Empire that troubles humanity.
The official website has also revealed a new key visual.
The manga ran in Enterbrain's Fellows! magazine (now known as Kadokawa's harta magazine) from 2008 to 2012, and Kadokawa published four compiled book volumes. In October, Nakama launched a sequel called Kenzen Robo Daimidaler OGS that runs in harta every other month.
The anime is scheduled to premiere on Japanese television in April.
