Next step for the franchise is said to be "coming soon"
Ah, Zoids. The toy-based anime series lies somewhere in the periphery of the past for me among a large pile of shows I didn't actively watch, but it's no doubt a nostalgic franchise for many. Well buckle up, because Takara Tomy has something cooking, and they're letting the world know with a teaser website that points toward a new Zoids project in the not-too-distant future.
It may not be as thrilling, but I also kind of dig it without the Zoid. Just a lonely soldier dude-pilot, thinking about all the missed opportunities in life.
The Zoids toys themselves have been around since the '80s, but the manga and the Zoids: Chaotic Century anime it inspired didn't jumpstart the franchise as we know it today until 1999. Hopefully we'll find out what's coming up next soon.
