Tatsunoko Productions began streaming a new promotional video for the upcoming Yoru no Yatterman anime on Monday. The video features the opening theme song "Kyokugen Dreamer" (Limit Dreamer) by the duo Screen mode.

Boyacky: I absolutely won't let you go!
Tonzra: Hey! How long are you going to sleep!?
Boyacky: I want to save that woman at all costs!
Tonzra: Everyone feels the same way.
Dorothy: You know that long ago, there was a war, right? That picture is of our ancestors.
Text: As long as Dorombos are here, Yattermans will not flourish in the world.
Dorothy: Until the day the sins of our ancestors are forgiven, and we're allowed to live in Heaven-like Yatter Kingdom.

The website also lists new cast members:

Chiaki Takahashi (The [email protected], Terraformars) as Oda-sama, Dorothy's pet pig who loves climbing trees. In the place Doronjo lives, pigs are treated with reverence, thus "Oda-sama" (Lord Oda). Because he is so revered and spoiled, he is fat.

Shizuka Itou (ToHeart2, Sailor Moon Crystal) as Dorothy, descendent of the Dorombos banished to a remote region by Yattermen. She is Leopard's mother, and had been living peacefully along with Voltkatze and Elephantus until she became ill, which inspired the trio to start their journey.

Hiroyuki Yoshino (Shirobako, Sket Dance) as Galina, a 17-year old boy with a strong sense of justice. In order to protect his childhood friend Alouette, he wants to become strong. He has dainty hands, and makes a lot of Alouette's clothing. His mother and father were captured by the Yattermen, forced into labor, and died. Because of this, he hates Yattermen. After meeting Doronjo and the others, he ends up traveling with them.

Shizuka Itou will also play Alouette, a 17-year old girl with a spacey personality, but tears up at just about anything. Just like her childhood friend Galina, her parents and her dog were taken away by the Yatterman and forced into labor. Because of this mental shock, she lost the ability of sight.

The previously announced cast includes:

Eri Kitamura (Mermaid Melody Pichi Pichi Pitch, Cross Ange) as Doronjo, real name Leopard, a 9-year old descendent of (the original) Doronjo. She is a dreaming young girl who doesn't lose hope in any situation. She has the power to stand back up after every trial she faces. Because she holds pride in her lineage, she tries to act bad, but since she's always been a good child, it never works.

Hiroaki Hirata (One Piece, Tiger & Bunny) as Boyacky, real name Voltkatze, a 25-year old descendent of Boyacky. His family has served Doronjo's for generations. A handsome man, he is also a genius mechanic.

Kenta Miyake (Zettai Karen Children, Berserk: The Golden Age Arc III - The Advent) as Tonzra, real name Elephantus, a 29-year old descendent of Tonzra. Like Boyacky, his family has served Doronjo's for generations. He is an elder brother-like existence to Boyacky, and is both powerful and kind.

The band SCREEN mode performs the opening theme "Kyokugen Dreamer" (Limit Dreamer) and the voice actress group Sphere performs the ending theme, "Jōnetsu Continue" (Passion Continue). Yoru no Yatterman will premiere on January 11, 2015.

Tatsunoko is producing the Yoru no Yatterman anime in celebration of the 40th anniversary of the Time Bokan franchise. The series will have 12 30-minute episodes. The official website features a new image of Boyacky and Tonzura, as well as Doronjo's costume.

The story is as follows:

In a remote land, there was a girl who gazed beyond the ocean. The land was Yatterman Kingdom. It is said that it is a heavenly land controlled by the Yattermen, the allies of justice. In order to save her sick mother, the girl attempted to land in Yatterman Kingdom to ask for help. However, she was turned away, and her mother passed away without anyone to give her charity. Doronbo: One of the bands of great thieves. There was a beautiful girl named Doronjo working under a boss named Dokurobeh. Her lackies were two men named Boyacky and Tonzura. The Doronbo fight with Yattermen, and within the fray, the team is banished to a remote land.

This is the story of a new generation of Doronbos. Doronjo, Boyacky, and Tonzura, as well as the story of the birth of Gan-chan and Ai-chan as Yattermen.

The original Yatterman television series premiered in 1977, and it spawned the first Yatterman anime film that same year. A new Yatterman televison series aired in Japan in 2008 for 60 episodes, and was followed by an animated film in 2009. A live-action film also premiered in the same year.
