We’re excited to announce yet another addition to our winter simulcast lineup — Yatterman Night!
Fans of classic anime will recognize the original beloved Yatterman franchise from Tatsunoko Production, the pioneers of Japanese animation behind such hits as Speed Racer and Gatchaman. Yatterman Night is a completely new series with new characters, aimed at an older audience with some darker modern elements, so it’ll be a great watch for fans of the original property and other anime fans alike!
The first episode of Yatterman Night will premiere on Tuesday, January 13th, with subsequent episodes streaming shortly after Japanese broadcast at 10:30 AM EST/9:30 AM CST on Sundays.
Long, long ago, a pair of heroes called the Yatterman faced off against the mischievous Doronbow Gang, led by the sexy villainess Doronjo. Now, years later, the Yatter Kingdom is protected by the new Yatterman. But the mysterious new Yatterman have forced the Yatter people into labor, and unrest runs rampant throughout the kingdom. In the spirit of her predecessor, a young new Doronjo reforms the Doronbow Gang in rebellion against the Yatterman.
