posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Amazon Japan announced on Wednesday that it will exclusively stream a second season of the Crayon Shin-chan Gaiden anime series beginning on November 9. The new season is titled Crayon Shin-chan Gaiden Omocha Wars (Crayon Shin-chan Side Story Toy Wars). The anime will have 13 episodes of about seven minutes each, and will stream one episode every Wednesday on the Amazon Prime Video service.
The anime's plot is taken from the 41st volume of the original manga's "Figure Wars" story. The story begins when toys of Oban, a character from a tokusatsu (special effects) television show, becomes popular, but also loses popualrity quickly. Many unsold Oban toys are thrown away. A bolt of lightning strikes one of these toys one day, and gives it life. Alongside other toys thrown away by people, Oban swears revenge on humans, and attacks. At the same time, Oban's sworn enemy Chūkōnen Kamen is also given life. Chūkōnen Kamen, normally a middle-aged, overweight, and depressed man, powers up by eating cup noodles. Alongside Shinnosuke, he will fight to reclaim peace for the world.
Shinnosuke Yakuwa, who directed the 2005 Doraemon anime, as well as this year's Doraemon Shin Nobita no Nihon Tanjō film, is directing the anime, and is also writing the script alongside Kimiko Ueno, who wrote the screenplay for last year's Eiga Crayon Shin-chan: Ora no Hikkoshi Monogatari ~Saboten Daishūgeki.
The first season debuted on Amazon Prime Video on August 3.
