Synopsis

SSSS.Gridman is a mecha, sci-fi, kaiju, action anime centered around Yuta Hibiki who awakes with amnesia with the ability to see things others cannot. First he sees a giant hero named Gridman that tells him to “remember his calling” and then later sees an extremely large monster. Once at school, the monster attacks and the Gridman shows up again, this time pulling Yuta through a computer screen and transforming him into a Gridman too.

Background

Announced at the Studio Trigger panel at Anime Expo 2017, SSSS.Gridman will have an original story written by Keiichi Hasegawa unrelated to the previous live-action series. Director Akira Amemiya stated the story “would focus on the youth of Japan and their relationship to technology” and that the hybrid 2D and 3D style "will change the industry." The anime is a collaboration between anime studio Trigger and Tsuburaya Productions (creators of Ultraman and the original live-action series Denko Chojin Gridman). The opening theme song is “Union” by OxT and the ending theme song is “Youthful Beautiful” by Maaya Uchida.
