Toonami will be protected from Kaiju Attacks thanks to this new edition to their line-up coming January 2021, SSSS. Gridman! Announced during Adult Swim’s Virtual Festival. During the Stream, Sr. Creative Director of Adult Swim On-Air Gill Austin and VP and Creative Director for Adult Swim On-Air (and Toonami Co-Creator) Jason DeMarco mentioned that the series “came really close” to airing earlier, but fell through at the last moment.

“You’re not alone. Whenever, forever.

Yuta Hibiki is a first-year student in high school living in Tsutsujidai. One day, he woke up without his memories.

Yuta later meets “Hyper Agent Gridman” who was inside an old computer.

Gridman told him to fulfill his purpose. Yuta’s quest to understand the meaning behind those words and to find his memories began.

While all of this was sudden, Yuta had helpful assistance from his classmates, Sho Utsumi, Rikka Takarada, and Akane Shinjo, but…

Those peaceful days were destroyed mercilessly by a monster that suddenly appeared.”
