SSSS.Dynazenon is receiving something extra in its Blu-ray and DVD home video releases: live-action video shorts called “Gridknight Fight.”
“Gridknight Fight” is being produced by Tsuburaya Productions, a studio known for its tokusatsu work. SSSS.Dynazenon will receive four home video releases, and there will be one episode of “Gridknight Fight” in each.
Yuichi Abe of Ultraman Zero: The Revenge of Belial has been tapped to direct the live-action shorts. Kenichi Suzumura and Karin Takahashi are back to play their characters Gridknight and Anosillus, respectively. Tetsu Inada of SSSS.Gridman plays Alexis Kerib.
The first home video release will take place in Japan later this month, and the following volumes will be released in July, September and October.
