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