[GRIDMAN UNIVERSE Overview]
SSSS.GRIDMAN is an original 2018 animated series created by Studio TRIGGER based on Gridman the Hyper Agent, a 1993 live action Tokusatsu series, that crossed the boundary between anime and Tokusatsu fans and garnered a massive following. Many of the main staff members involved with the series have continued on to work on the latest project, SSSS.DYNAZENON.
GRIDMAN UNIVERSE is a massive developing project centered on the stories and worlds of SSSS.GRIDMAN and the brand-new SSSS.DYNEZENON, developing motifs and visuals through goods and videos.
Takara Tomy is also set to join this ever-developing project. The company formerly known as Takara was responsible for designing and developing toys for Gridman the Hyper Agent while the series was airing, making their participation is a “homecoming” 28 years in the making.
With such promising partnerships, how will GRIDMAN UNIVERSE continue to develop? Stay tuned for more information!
