VIDEO: Tatsunoko Packs Self-Parody in "Ippatsu Hicchuu!! Devander" Preview

OVA celebrates 50th anniversary of studio behind Speed Racer and Gatchaman

Tatsunoko's (Speed Racer, Gatchaman, Tekkaman) 50th anniversary celebrations include the release of OVA Ippatsu Hicchuu!! Devander on the October 19th date of the studio's founding. A new three minute trailer shows off how much self reference and self parody has been packed into what ultimately looks like a pretty bizarre venture. 



Speed Racer's Hiroshi Sasagawa directs the OVA, with a scenario by Futago Kamikita (Naruto, One Piece, Hayate the Combat Butler) and mecha design by the legendary Kunio Okawara (Gundam... and a large slice of the other major mecha from Gatchaman, Time Bokan, and the original Tekkaman to Votoms and GaoGaiGar).

Principal cast includes Yuuki Kaji (Durarara's Walker, Amata Sora in Aquarion Evol) and Rumi Okkubo (YuruYuri's Chinatsu Yoshikawa).
