SSSS.GRIDMAN is finally making its way to Toonami‘s Adult Swim block. The announcement came during the Toonami Panel portion of the Virtual Adult Swim Expo.
The tokusatsu-inspired anime series will hit Toonami in January 2021.
Here is the full stream that includes the announcement:
SSSS.GRIDMAN is an anime adaptation of the original ’93-’94 tokusatsu Denkou Choujin Gridman (Gridman The Hyper Agent). It was released in the United States as Superhuman Samurai Syber Squad, hence the ‘SSSS’ in the title.
It was Studio TRIGGER’s in-house director Akira Amemiya’s passion project, jointly created with Tsubaraya Productions.
If you’re unfamiliar with the series, here is a quick rundown:
Yuta Hibiki can’t remember who he is, and now he’s seeing and hearing things that others don’t! A voice from an old computer tells him to remember his calling, and he sees a massive, unmoving creature in the distance. Nothing’s making sense — until the behemoth springs to life! Suddenly, Yuta is pulled into the digital world, reappearing in the real one as the colossal hero — Gridman!
The 12-episode SSSS.GRIDMAN anime first aired in October 2018. Tsubaraya Productions and Studio TRIGGER are currently working on SSSS.DYNAZENON, the latest anime instalment in the ‘Gridman Universe.’
