The official blog for the Tonari no Young Jump editorial department announced on Friday that Sunrise's Double Decker! Doug & Kirill, an anime series that is "one part" of the "new Tiger & Bunny animation project," will get a manga adaptation that will run on both Shueisha's Tonari no Young Jump website and the YanJan! app. The first chapter will debut at midnight on October 1, only a few hours after the anime's debut. Tiger & Bunny manga artist Mizuki Sakakibara is returning to draw the series.
The anime will premiere in Japan on Tokyo MX on September 30 at 10:30 p.m. Crunchyroll already debuted the first two episodes at its Crunchyoll Expo event on Monday, and is already streaming the first episode. Funimation will stream an English dub.
Crunchyroll describes the anime:
The city state of Lisvalletta. Two suns rise above this city, and the people here live peaceful lives, but in the shadows crime and illegal drugs run rampant. Among them is the dangerous, highly lethal drug "Anthem" which casts a dark shadow over the city. The SEVEN-O Special Crime Investigation Unit specializes in cracking down on Anthem. This unit operates in two man "buddy" teams in what's called the "Double Decker System" to tackle the problem. Doug Billingham is a seasoned investigator, and joining him is Kirill Vrubel, whose abilities are mysterious and unknown.
Joji Furuta (Utano☆Princesama Legend Star, The Seven Deadly Sins: Revival of The Commandments director, episode director and storyboarder on original Tiger & Bunny series) is directing the series at Sunrise. Ryo Ando (Interviews with Monster Girls) is in charge of series production, and Tomohiro Suzuki (Tiger & Bunny, One-Punch Man, ACCA: 13-Territory Inspection Dept.) is returning to oversee the series scripts. Manga creator Masakazu Katsura (Zetman) is returning to design the main characters, and Norihiro Itagaki is returning from the Tiger & Bunny The Movie -The Rising- and Tiger & Bunny the Movie: The Beginning films to handle the animation character design. Yuki Hayashi (My Hero Academia, Haikyu!!, Death Parade) is composing the music.
