Along with the good news of SSSS.Gridman official website updating its policies regarding the show’s guidelines on derivative works and doujinshis, the official Twitter account also announced recently that dakimakura covers of the two main girls of the show, Rikka Takarada and Akane Shinjou, will be up for pre-order.
The dakimakura covers feature the two girls in both their school uniforms and swimsuits, the latter which we will probably see in episode 5, airing this week. Both of the dakimakura covers are priced at 12,960 yen (tax included). Both of the dakimakura cover’s designs highlight each girl’s top qualities, from Rikka’s sweet thighs to Akane’s bountiful assets. The director must be proud.
SSSS.Gridman is a Japanese anime television adaptation of the 1993–1994 tokusatsu series Gridman the Hyper Agent. The production is a joint collaboration between Tsuburaya Productions, the production company behind Gridman and Ultraman, and Studio Trigger.
The show is officially described as the following:
“You’re not alone. On any day, anywhere. Yuta Hibiki, a first-year high school student living in Tsutsujidai, one day wakes up to find he has lost his memories. He meets the “Hyper Agent Gridman” on his old computer, and Gridman says that Yuta has a mission he must fulfill, so Yuta sets out to find the meaning to those words and his memory loss. Yuta’s friends, Sho Utsumi, Rikka Takarada, and Akane Shinjo, would always help him and spend their days with him. But, their tranquil days are suddenly and easily crushed with the appearance of kaiju.”
The series is directed by Akira Amemiya (Ninja Slayer) and written by Keiichi Hasegawa (Zoids, Rage of Bahamut Genesis), with the new Gridman character design provided by Masayuki Gotou from Tsuburaya Productions, known for contributing the designs for a lot of Ultraman series. Shiro Sagisu (Neon Genesis Evangelion) is handling the series’ music with Toshiki Kameyama (Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha) as the sound director and Eiko Morikawa for the SFX director.
