Tsubaraya‘s Denkou Choujin Gridman (which was adapted into Superhuman Samurai Syber-Squad in the West) is set to return in the form of a one-off anime short, as part of Japan Animator Expo – a project of weekly anime shorts spearheaded by Hideaki Anno’s Studio Khara and media company Dwango.
The short, entitled “Denkou Choujin Gridman: Boys invent Great Hero” was animated by popular studio Trigger (most notable for the recent Kill la Kill) and directed by Akira Amemiya – director of Trigger’s Inferno Cop and forthcoming Ninja Slayer series.
The project will see a total of 30 planned shorts air weekly, ranging from anime shorts to promotional and music videos. While these will be streamed for free via Niconico, there are currently no plans for any of them to receive a commercial release.
Niconico have already released a 13 second teaser of the short, however it doesn’t give away anything other than the title. Are you excited for the return of Gridman? Sound off after the jump!
