Never fear: your favorite otherworldly robot adventure is back on!
Mashin Hero Wataru: The Seven Spirits of Ryujinmaru took a hiatus, along with much of the rest of the season, two episodes into its online run. The series is a follow-up to the fantasy/mecha anime that first aired in 1988, in which schoolkid Wataru travels to the platformer-like fantasy world of Mt. Sokai with his clay model turned robot Ryujinmaru. In The Seven Spirits of Ryujinmaru , Wataru's robot is divided up into seven unique mecha, and his party must traverse the mirrored world of Reverse Mt. Sokai to bring him back together.
Episode 3 will air on the BANDAI SPIRITS YouTube Channel this Friday, June 19. A date for the premiere of episode 4, the final episode in the first half, will be announced on social media once it has been decided. The second half, episodes 5-9, appears to still be on track for this fall.
