DUBAI: Japanese animation studio TMS Entertainment announced that Megalobox 2: Nomad, the sequel for the original Megalobox anime series, is set to premier on April 4 in Japan.

For this occasion, TMS Entertainment released a new promotional video and key visual for the upcoming series.

TMS Entertainment describes the new anime as follows:

“In the end, ‘Gearless’ Joe was the one that reigned as the champion of Megalonia, a first ever Megalobox tournament. Fans everywhere were mesmerized by the meteoric rise of Joe who sprung out from the deepest underground ring to the top in mere three months and without the use of gear. Seven years later, ‘Gearless’ Joe was once again fighting in underground matches. Adorned with scars and once again donning his gear, but now known only as Nomad…”

The returning cast members include Yoshimasa Hosoya as Joe/Nomad, Shiro Saito as Gansaku Nanbu, Hiroki Yasumoto as Yuri and Michiyo Murase as Sachio.

The returning staff members include director You Moriyama, head writers Katsuhiko Manabe and Kensaku Kojima, and composer Mabanua. Ayumi Kurashima is replacing Hiroshi Shimizu as character designer, and Naomi Kaneda is also the new sub-character designer.

The original Megalobox anime series was released in 2018 as part of Ashita no Joe’s 50th anniversary celebration.
