The property is based off of the manga by Asaki Nakama which began in 2008 and ended in 2012 with four volumes total for it. It also got a sequel series from Nakama that has been running since October called Kenzen Robo Daimidaler OGS, which has a bimonthly publication schedule, so it’s not one we’ll see a lot of quickly.

Some of the cast was previously announced with Koichi Madanbashi being played by Nobunaga Shimazaki while Kyoko Sonan will be played by Yoko Hikasa. The new additions are Natsuki Hanae as Shoma Amaku, Shizuka Ishigami as Namu Mayu and Aya Suzaki as Likantz Seaberry
