Dynamic Planning, Toei's project turns "legendary super robots into beautiful girls"

The cast and staff of the Robot Girls Z anime announced during their live-streamed "Robot Girls Z Christmas Eve Special" on Tuesday that production on a new anime, Robot Girls Z+, has been green-lit for 2015.

The Robot Girls Z anime is the current incarnation of Toei Robot Girls, the project that turns Dynamic Planning and Toei Animation's "legendary super robots into beautiful girls!!"

The stars of Robot Girls Z series are Z-chan, Gre-chan, and Grenda-san. Together they (try to) defend Photon Power Town from "the enemy, the mechanical beast girls of the underground empire." The villains are led by Baron Ashura, the underground emperor "bent on world domination(?)" — or at least, town domination.

Hiroshi Ikehata (original Toei Robot Girls, Ring ni Kakero 1: Sekai Taikai-hen) directed the 2014 television anime, and Kazuho Hyodo (Tactical Roar) was in charge of the scripts. Tetsuya Kawakami (Shigofumi - Letters from the Departed, Toei Robot Girls) designed the characters. The television anime spawned a compilation movie in May.

Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired in Japan earlier this year.
