posted on by Egan Loo
The official website for Double Decker! Doug & Kirill, the anime series that is "one part" of Sunrise's "new Tiger & Bunny animation project," announced on Friday that a new three-episode Double Decker! Doug & Kirill Extra Story anime has been green-lit for streaming and home video release. The Extra Story anime will be available for streaming on pay-per-view and subscription services, as well as on Blu-ray Disc and DVD.
The Double Decker! Doug & Kirill Extra Blu-ray and DVD will go on sale on May 24, and it will include a special CD (with audio drama and cast talk segments), booklet, and audio commentary for the anime itself. The release will also have Japanese subtitles, a case illustrated by main character designer Masakazu Katsura, and a jacket sleeve illustrated by animation character designer Tokuhiro Itagaki.
The main television anime premiered 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 earlier in September, and already streamed the first episode before the television premiere. Funimation is streaming 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.
