Sequel anime premieres October 7

The official Twitter account for Time Bokan: Gyakushū no San-Okunin (Three Bad Guys' Counterattack), the sequel to the Time Bokan 24 anime, revealed on Wednesday that the long-running male pop duo KinKi Kids will perform the anime's opening theme song "DESTINY." (The group is so named because both members come from the Kinki region of Japan.)

The anime will premiere on Yomiuri TV and NTV on October 7. The September 30 episode of the My Hero Academia anime will preview the new opening song.

The sequel will follow the three villains of Akudama as they try to take over as main characters. They will try to collect mysterious treasure held by famous historical figures.

The following cast members are returning:

  • Akihisa Wakayama as Tokio
  • Akari Kitō as Karen
  • Eri Kitamura as Bimajo
  • Hiroaki Hirata as Tsubuyakky
  • Kenta Miyake as Suzukky
  • Hori as Oyadarma

Shigeru Chiba, the first season's voice of Bokan'nare, is also returning.

The first season premiered last October and ended with the 24th episode on March 18. Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired.

Crunchyroll describes the story:

The history in our textbooks are all wrong?! In the 24th century, humankind accomplished the invention of a time machine, “Time Bokan”. As they discover the truth about history, they realize that the history written in their textbooks are all wrong! To correct their knowledge of history, the government developed an organization called JKK (Space-time Administrative Bureau). Our hero Tokio is recruited by Karen, a girl from the future to join the JKK. Together they travel through time to discover the true history, along with fighting the “Akudarma” a villainous group whose goal is to prevent the discovery of the truth!

Takayuki Inagaki (World Break: Aria of Curse for a Holy Swordsman, Rosario + Vampire) directed the series, and Yoichi Kato (Yo-kai Watch, Aikatsu!) was in charge of series composition. Akihiro HIno (Yo-kai Watch, Inazuma Eleven story) was the creative producer. Level-5 contributed the original character and mechanical designs and planned the project with Tatsunoko Productions. Kunio Okawara (Mobile Suit Gundam, Yatterman, Armored Trooper Votoms) worked on the anime's mechanical design.

The original Time Bokan television anime series premiered on Fuji TV in 1975, and its original broadcast ended in 1976. The anime inspired six spinoff television anime series, including Yatterman, that aired until 1983.

This October 19 will mark Tatsunoko Production's 55th anniversary.
