Former comrades are divided into allies and foes, and the battle of destiny begins.

The anime’s announcement coincided with “Bikkuri-Man Day” in Japan on April 1. Bikkuri-Man snacks became a huge success in Japan since their 1977 launch, and they have inspired various tie-ins, including five television anime and two films. The original television anime premiered in 1987.
