Infini-T Force Hero Anime's Promo Video Reveals flumpool Theme Song

Tatsunoko's crossover anime uses "To be continued …" song in Fall TV show, February film

The official website for Tatsunoko Productions' Infini-T Force CG-animated television anime began streaming the main promotional video on Wednesday. The video previews the voice cast and unveils the theme song "To be continued …" by the band flumpool.

The song will be the theme song for both the television anime premiering in October and the film version opening in February. Tokyo's Shinjuku Piccadilly theater will host an advance screening on September 17 with cast members Tomokazu Seki and Ai Kayano, as well as director Kiyotaka Suzuki.

The show stars:

Tomokazu Seki as Gatchaman (G-1)/Ken Washio

Takahiro Sakurai as Tekkaman/Jōji Minami

Kenichi Suzumura as Polymar/Takeshi Yoroi

Sōma Saitō as Casshan/Tetsuya Azuma

Ai Kayano as Emi Kaido, a high school girl living in modern-day Shibuya, Tokyo. She has no interest in anything and always has a cold attitude. Her behavior keeps other people away.

Atsushi Ono as Z, a mysterious man who is involved in secret dealings behind strange events that are happening around the world. His true nature is completely unknown, and he is known as the last letter of the alphabet "Z."

Hiroki Yasumoto as Raja Kaan, a giant who is more than three meters (about 10 feet) tall. He has the form of an ugly monster.

Daisuke Hirakawa as Damian Gray, a man completely wrapped up in flashy visual-kei fashion. His characteristic way of speaking mixes foreign languages.

Kana Hanazawa as Belle Lynn, a woman whose extremely powerful combat strength is impossible to guess from her beautiful appearance.

The project celebrates Tatsunoko Productions' 55th anniversary in October 2017. The anime will feature the heroes from four earlier Tatsunoko Productions anime: Tekkaman, the Space Knight; Casshan (Casshern); Gatchaman; and Hurricane Polymar.

Kiyotaka Suzuki (Psycho-Pass 2) is directing the anime at Digital Frontier (The Boy and The Beast, Wolf Children), and Toshiya Ono (Gatchaman Crowds, Blue Exorcist: Kyoto Saga) is supervising the anime's scripts. Manga creator Oh! great (Tenjo Tenge, Air Gear) designed the original character concepts. Keiichi Satou (The Big O, Ninja Resurrection) is in charge of the original hero design concepts, and Koji Nakakita (Gatchaman Crowds, Jūsō Kikō Dancouga Nova) is in charge of suit and mechanical designs.

The anime will have a different story from an earlier Infini-T Force ~Mirai no Byōsen~ (Infini-T Force: Writing Line of the Future) manga by Ukyō Kodachi (Boruto, Naruto: Gaara Hiden - Sajingensō novel). Udon Entertainment is releasing the manga.

The television series will premiere on October 3 at 25:59 (effectively October 4 at 1:59 a.m.) on NTV. The show will air as part of NTV's new "AnichU" one-hour programming block. The series will also air on YTV, Sapporo TV, Shizuoka Daiichi TV, Hiroshima TV, and Fukuoka Broadcasting starting in October. The anime will stream in Japan only on Hulu.

The television series had its world premiere at Anime Expo last month.
