SSSS.GRIDMAN was the first project in the newly shared Gridman Universe, which is loosely based on the original Gridman live-action tokusatsu series from 1993 created by Tsuburaya Productions. Tsuburaya teamed up with TRIGGER for the TV anime series, which then spawned a sequel TV anime, SSSS.DYNAZENON, which aired from April 2, 2021, to June 18, 2021. Crunchyroll is streaming both series.
GRIDMAN UNIVERSE is helmed by director Akira Amemiya at Studio TRIGGER and is set to premiere in Japan on March 24.
