A new trailer has dropped for Sonny Boy, which is being directed by One-Punch Man’s Shingo Natsume and is a work from the studio Madhouse. Natsume also wrote the scripts for the anime and it’s based on his ideas. Cowboy Bebop director Shinichiro Watanabe worked on the title as the musical advisor.
The first episode will debut on YouTube in Japan this weekend, but will not be available yet for people outside of the country. Fear not, though, because Funimation plans to show the first episode early along with the first episode of the Scarlet Nexus anime.
Get the popcorn ready! Special first episode premieres of Scarlet Nexus and Sonny Boy will begin after tomorrow’s Summer Season Preview, all on our YouTube.
These premieres will be available for a limited time, though, so don’t wait!
