Kinnikuman: Perfect Origin Arc Reveals Episode 0 Preview, Coming to Netflix on July 7

The upcoming Kinnikuman: Perfect Origin Arc anime by Production I.G has revealed the preview images and synopsis for Episode 0. The episode will recap the past series leading up to the Perfect Origin Arc, and the scenes will be newly animated for the first time in about 30 years.

Netflix will stream the anime from July 7, and Episode 0 will also feature a special opening theme song “Kinnikuman Go Fight!!” by Mamoru Miyano (who voices Kinnikuman).

The official synopsis for Episode 0:
Kinnikuman was supposed to return to his home planet and become king after defeating the greatest foe he ever faced, Super Phoenix… He’s about to marry Bibimbap and yet for some reason, he returns to Earth instead. His destination is the nostalgic and familiar Kinniku House in Den-en-chofu, Tokyo. All his previous allies have gathered there. Kinnikuman and his staunchest ally Terryman throw down in a no-holds-barred sparring match as a “wedding present” for the groom-to-be. They reflect on their past selves and encounters, reminiscing about the old days full of fierce matches.

The staff for the anime consists of Akira Sato as the director, Makoto Fukami in charge of the series composition, Hirotaka Marufuji as the character designer, and Yasuharu Takanashi in charge of the music.
