News:: Kill la Kill studio to make an anime out of Superhuman Samurai Syber-Squad

There comes a time when two amazing things come together to bring us a phenomenal product. This principle applies to when a group of machines combines to become one badass giant robot.

While we're on the topic of glorious combinations, Studio Trigger (Kill la Kill, Little Witch Academia), the anime studio that was founded by some of Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann's key people, announced at Anime Expo '17 that they joined forces with Tsuburaya (the Ultraman franchise) to work on a new anime of Denkou Choujin Gridman, the show that was adapted into Superhuman Samurai Syber-Squad in the West.

At the moment, the only thing that we know about the project is that Akira Amemiya (Inferno Cop and Ninja Slayer's Series Director) is directing the new Gridman anime, along with the anime being an original title. In other words, this means that it won't be connected to Tsuburaya's tokusatsu series. With the project's whole title being Superhuman Samurai Syber-Squad Gridman, something tells me that it'll appeal to fans of the original series and the Americanized version.

Since the Amemiya and Trigger worked on a Gridman anime short in 2015, this sounds like another chance for us to watch another animation with giant warriors and robots fighting against large monsters in cyberspace.
