Finally, After Days of Speculations, TV5 AniMEGA Facebook Page (http://www.facebook.com/animegaTV5) has finally announced their new anime line-up this May! And the two new anime additions to the “Kapatid” network will be the adventurous Yatterman (2008) and Casshern Sins.
Take note that Yatterman has been announced on the TV5 Kids / TV5 AniMEGA Presentation during the TV5 Trade Re-launch, happened last March 25, and ZEN Otaku Honbu has been informed about the acquisition of Casshern Sins a week later.
SYNOPSIS (AnimeNewsNetwork): A mysterious gem called the “Skull Stone” said to be able to reveal the location of the largest vein of gold in the world. This legend has entranced many people who wanted to get their hands on fame, power and wealth, including the Dorombo Gang. However, their hunt for the Skull Stone is not as easy as they imagined, mainly due to the faulty information they receive from their leader; and most of all, by a justical duo of pursuers called the “Yatterman”.
Yatterman (2008) will air Mondays to Fridays at 06:00pm, Starting May 03.
SYNOPSIS (MyAnimeList.net): In the distant future, where cyborgs and humans struggle to survive after the war which destroyed the world, a being in white suit awakens. His name is Casshern and he remembers nothing of his own past.
In barren and dark dystopian world, where every being alive seems to hate his existence and the evil from his past wants him dead, Casshern, haunted by the flashes of his past memories has to survive and figure out who or what exactly he is and how he got to where he is now. But he does not know that he might not like the horrible truth of the past, hidden deep inside his mind…
It is the remake of the classic anime, Neo Human Casshern, produced by Tatsunoko Productions. They are also the makers of the classic anime, Gatchaman, which is currently airing on HERO.
Casshern Sins will air Every Monday to Fridays at 07:00pm, starting May 04.
It seems that TV5 a lot on their sleeves, TV5 AniMEGA Block included, and we expect a lot more surprises to come!
