Following up on SSSS.GRIDMAN and SSSS.DYNAZENON, an anime film was previously announced for the series from Tsuburaya Productions and TRIGGER. Now a new visual has arrived for GRIDMAN UNIVERSE along with confirmation of 2023 release plans and a returning cast.
The visual shows one of GRIDMAN‘s main characters, Yuta Hibiki.
The anime’s returning staff was previously confirmed, including director Akira Amemiya, writer Keiichi Hasegawa, character designer Masaru Sakamoto and music composer Shiro Sagisu. Returning cast members include Hikaru Midorikawa (Gridman), Yuya Hirose (Yuta Hibiki), Yume Miyamoto (Rikka Takarada) and Soma Saito (Sho Utsumi) from GRIDMAN, as well as Junya Enoki (Yomogi Asanaka), Shion Wakayama (Yume Minami), Yuichiro Umehara (Koyomi Yamanaka) and Chika Anzai (Chise Asukagawa) from DYNAZENON.
Inspired by the original Gridman tokusatsu series from 1993, both the SSSS.GRIDMAN and SSSS.DYNAZENON anime are available to stream on Crunchyroll, which describes the former like so:
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!
