The New Japan Pro-Wrestling organization's owner Takaaki Kidani (Bushiroad) announced on Thursday that an anime adaptation of Ikki Kajiwara's Tiger Mask manga is in the works. According to the organization, its wrestlers will appear in the project under their own names. They plan to release the anime not only in Japan, but also stream it throughout the world.


"Tiger Mask" is the alter ego of the character Naoto Date, a pro wrestler who goes against an evil wrestling organization and fights for children in an orphanage.

This project could be pretty awesome. As a fan of both anime and Japanese pro-wrestling I'm excited to hear more as it develops. I have to admit a little bit of worry that an old manga is getting an anime adaptation, I hope they do something like the recent Golgo13 Anime series where they keep the character models mostly similar and not try to do something like the awful CG I saw in some recent reboots, R.I.P Sailor Moon Crystal.
