With Studio TRIGGER's upcoming SSSS.GRIDMAN animated series a little under a month away, our excitement is reaching some seriously critical masses for the revival of some classic tokusatsu action. Only amplifying this hype was the recent reveal of a third key visual for the series, as well as a gorgeous looking new PV that comes in hot at just over a minute. Uploaded to Tsuburaya Production's official YouTube channel earlier this week, the latest PV can be streamed below:
Originally revealed at Anime Expo 2017, the new-age animated take on mid-90s tokusatsu Gridman the Hyper Agent (adopted as Superhuman Samurai Syber-Squad in the West) was one of three projects announced by Studio TRIGGER at the time. Just a year later, we'd see Studio TRIGGER once more return to Anime Expo, this time bringing with them the first episode of SSSS.GRIDMAN. Joining the reveal of the all-new visual and PV, we also got our first glimpse at the series' premise, as seen below:
Set to premiere in Japan on October 6, we can't wait to see what Studio TRIGGER manages to do with SSSS.GRIDMAN. Until then, however, you'll want to be sure to check out even more information on the upcoming series via SSSS.GRIDMAN's official website.
You're not alone. On any day, anywhere.
Yuta Hibiki, a first-year high school student living in Tsutsujidai, one day wakes up to find he has lost his memories. It's at this time that he meets the "Hyper Agent Gridman" on his old computer. Gridman informs Yuta that he has a mission he must fulfill, leaving Yuta to set out on a journey to find the meaning to those words and his memory loss.
Yuta's friends — Sho Utsumi, Rikka Takarada, and Akane Shinjo — would always help him and spend their days with him. But, their tranquil days are suddenly and easily crushed with the appearance of kaiju.
