‘Bravoman’ Animated Series Coming This Spring From ShiftyLook

Just a year into reviving nearly 20 dormant Namco video games such as Galaga, Dig Dug and Katamari with webcomics by contemporary talent, ShiftyLook is venturing into animation with a new animated webseries based on Bravoman, the site’s most popular strip.An extension of writer Matt Moylan and artist Dax Gordine’s ongoing ShiftyLook webcomic, the new animated webseries is based on the Bravoman line of arcade/console games that kicked off in 1988, and follows the adventures of a salaryman-turned-tokusatsu hero. Each character sports updated character designs, and stars in contemporary punchline-oriented scenes with callbacks to Japan’s tradition of live-action special-effects shows.

The Bravoman cartoon, based on the webcomic, based on the game, has incorporated a wide variety of talent from the comics world. Jim Zub, writer and co-creator of Skullkickers (drawn by Edwin Huang), has signed on as co-producer, co-director and co-writer. Joining him as co-writers are Rob Pereyda, editor-in-chief of ShiftyLook, along with Moylan.

Prolific voice actors Rob Paulsen (Animaniacs, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Mighty Max), Dee Bradley Baker (Star Wars: Clone Wars), and Romi Dames (Winx Club) will all be voicing multiple characters. The animated series’ theme song will be composed by Randy Rogel, who is known for essentially every Animaniacs tune that every got stuck in a viewer’s head, among other triumphs.

As yet, there’s no specific release date beyond a vague “Spring 2013.” In the meantime, interested fans can check out the Bravoman archives at ShiftyLook, a short video teaser at Kotaku, plus new stills from the cartoon, below.
