'First season' to have 20 7-minute long episodes

Media news website Nerdist reported on Tuesday that the new kids anime Dino Girl Gauko (Kyōryū Shōjo Gauko) will premiere on Netflix on November 22. The "first season" will have 20 episodes that are seven-minute long each. The website also posted several visuals from the anime.

Akira Shigino (Osomatsu-kun, Nanako SOS, Crayon Shin-chan movies 17 and 18) is directing the anime at Ascension. Kimiko Ueno (Crayon Shin-chan) is writing the anime.

Variety describes the anime:

The comedy series is set in Japan and follows Naoko Watanabe, a typical tween girl aside from the fact that she possesses strange and sometimes troubling powers. When her anger exceeds a maximum level, she turns into Gauko, the fire-breathing dinosaur girl.

The first episode, "Dad's Little Secret" ("Otōsan no Himitsu"), competed in the TV Films category of this year's Annecy International Animation Film Festival in June.
