Classic-style TV series starring Ryota Murai to premiere in spring 2015

The TV Kanagawa (tvk) and KBS Kyoto television stations will air a new anime next spring with the themes of Kyoto, wagashi (traditional Japanese sweets), and giant mecha.

The Doamaiger D anime will center around Daijirō Kyōgoku, the 15th generation owner of the Kyoto sweets shop Amashōdō. One day, Daijirō discovers a giant robot named Doamaiger D in his store's basement. At the same time, enemies called "Mekaijū" (a combination of the words mecha and kaijū or monster) appear in Kyoto and begin wreaking havoc.

Actor Ryota Murai (Fūma no Kojirō, Kamen Rider Decade) will play the role of Daijirō. The official website also lists that production studio ILCA (Yamishibai: Japanese Ghost Stories) is also involved in the series.

Tvk is currently streaming a trailer for the anime that previews its classic style.
