To commemorate the 2nd anniversary of the release of the “SSSS.GRIDMAN” anime series, Tsuburaya Productions has announced that it will stream Gridman the Hyper Agent (Denkou Choujin Gridman) on their ULTRAMAN OFFICIAL YouTube channel every Friday at 18:30 from October 30, 2020.
Gridman the Hyper Agent was released in 1993 to commemorate the 30th anniversary of Tsuburaya Productions. Gridman was the first series by Tsuburaya Productions to utilize D-2 digital video for its special effects scenes.
Three computer-savvy kids, Naoto, Yuka and Ippei create their own videogame super-hero, but then discover it’s possessed by an inter-dimensional police officer Gridman. Pursuing an evil program called Kahn Digifer, he merges with Naoto and fights Kahn Digifer’s digitized monsters (created by social misfit Takeshi) in order to prevent the computerized demon from wreaking havoc on the town of Sakuragaoka and the entire Human World.
