Tsuburaya Production and TRIGGER has announced the production of new anime "SSSS.DYNAZENON". Much like "SSSS.GRIDMAN", released in Oct. 2018, the new anime is based on the tokusatsu drama "Gridman".
The announcement was made during the opening ceremony of the 2-day event "TSUBURAYA CONVENTION 2019" held at Tokyo Dome City from Dec. 14 to 15.
"SSSS.DYNAZENON" is a completely new anime produced in a collaboration between Tsuburaya Productions, known for the "Ultra Series", and animation studio TRIGGER. Although it is not a direct sequel of "SSSS.GRIDMAN", aired in 2018, it's based on the same tokusatsu drama, "Gridman".
It was announced that the staff for "SSSS.GRIDMAN" will continue with their role in this new anime. Amemiya Akira will be directing the series, Hasegawa Keichi will be responsible for the script, Sakamoto Masaru will be in charge of the characters design, and Sagisu Shiro will be responsible for the music.
The released teaser visual shows what appears to be kaiju-like mech head, leaving many to wonder what connection it has to the this new series. "SSS.GRIDMAN" became a hot topic in media coverage everywhere after being receiving the "Seiun Award" (Media Category) at the 58th edition of "Nihon SF Taikai" ( Japan SF Convention ). The next series will certainly be well received by fans.
