Tatsunoko's 50th Anniversary Celebration


Tatsunoko's (Speed Racer, Gatchaman, Tekkaman) 50th anniversary celebrations include the release of OVA Ippatsu Hicchuu!! Devander on the October 19th date of the studio's founding. A new three minute trailer shows off how much self reference and self parody has been packed into what ultimately looks like a pretty bizarre venture. Speed Racer's Hiroshi Sasagawa directs the OVA, with a scenario by Futago Kamikita (Naruto, One Piece, Hayate the Combat Butler) and mecha design by the legendary Kunio Okawara (Gundam... and a large slice of the other major mecha from Gatchaman, Time Bokan, and the original Tekkaman to Votoms and GaoGaiGar).
