Spin Masters, ShoPro, and potentially Studio Bones are working together on Tenkai Knights

Tenkai_Knights_main

With Bakugan seemingly Bakugone in the west, and given Redakai kind of Redadied Spin Masters is on the hunt for their next hit multimedia franchise with their hopes pinned on the new Canada-Japan co-production called Tenkai Knights. The 52 episode series will be distributed in Japan by Shogakukan-Shueisha Productions, in Europe by Viz Media, and of course in North America by Spin Masters themselves with the latter providing an extensive toyline to support the series. Anime fans will be interested in checking out the series as Japanese animation outsourcing company Studio Wanpack were the first to mention this series. This is important because Studio Wanpack has traditionally worked with acclaimed anime studio Bones, meaning they’re likely involved with this project. The show’s plot is as follows:

Saving the world is serious business and should never be taken lightly. It is only for the brave of heart. Guren, Ceylan, Chooki, and Toxsa were not planning on being heroes when they accidentally stumbled into an inter-dimensional portal. Ripped through space and time, they reemerged on another world as Bravenwolf, Tributon, Lydendor, and Valorn… the legendary Tenkai Knights!

In addition to these 52 broadcast episodes, there will also be exclusive webisode content. While Cartoon Network in the US has committed to airing the series later this year, no Canadian broadcast plans have been revealed.

    Inb4 this airs on YTV
    Why does YTV only care about cheap toy-commercial anime, and broadcasts CanCon crap like Monster Fighters and Mystery Hunters instead of more mature series?

    • I assume you mean Monster Warriors, which I don’t believe has been on TV in years. YTV’s actually mandated by the government to air a certain amount of Canadian programming a day.

      As for the toy commercial series, those pay the pills. YTV may have cut revenue sharing agreements with the toy companies or something.

    I think this will air on Teletoon since they aired Spin Master’s Bakugan IIRC.

    Anyway, I’ll definitely give this a try when it comes out. I wasn’t a fan of their “Redakai” show, but this looks far more interesting.
