Gridman x Dynazenon anime movie announcement news hype fans

First, this is a new movie project by Studio Trigger. And while TV series by Trigger are amazing, the movies are always something else. Many fans still consider the Little Witch Academia movies and Promare as the best thing Trigger did (after Turning Girls).

Furthermore, director Akira Amemiya is coming back as well as the Gridman and Dynazenon core staff. It’s very likely this crossover movie will be the epitome of all the SSSS projects so far. Reimagining and rebooting the live-action series into anime, and ending with an awesome crossover. Overall, this is a great occasion to get into the series now, and into Ultraman as a whole.
