After a long wait, we finally have a new Zoids anime series this summer! But before it even premieres, Takara Tomy is whetting the appetite of fans by releasing the anime’s first five minutes! Here it is:

Well, that’s certainly one extreme form of bug hunting… and yes, those Zoids are smaller than the ones we’re used to. However, so far, the anime looks good, and it’s exciting to see all that faction dynamic play out.

Norihiko Sudo (Pokemon Diamond and Pearl) will be directing the TV anime over at Oriental Light & Magic. It will premiere this July 7 as part of the upcoming Summer 2018 anime season. The new anime will introduce several new Zoids, most notably the Wild Liger, as well as the Gil Raptor.

And of course, Takara Tomy will be releasing new Zoids model kits as well. The Wild Liger and Gil Raptor model kits will be released in June 2018 for 3,000 yen each. They previously revealed other kits, and will be revealing more about them in the days to come.
