To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the franchise, a new anime project related to manga Cyborg 009 has been announced on its official website. Director Jun Kawagoe will be involved in this new project. He previously directed a TV anime titled Cyborg 009: The Cyborg Soldier in 2001.

The Cyborg 009 franchise is based on the manga created by Shoutarou Ishinomori which was serialized in 1964. The manga has been previously adapted into movies, a CGI short, and a television series. The format of the new anime project is unknown.

According to the official website, the tagline for the anime project is:

2015. The battles of the 00-numbered cyborgs will continue.

I've been meaning to get into this franchise, but never really got the time. This new project will probably be my chance to do so.

One might hope that this will be the one to stir new interest into the works of Ishinomori. Maybe we could one day get a Kamen Rider anime too.

Shush. Lupin is welcome back.

Plus a lot of these old ideas could use a revival--as animation and storytelling techniques have greatly evolved.

Hoping for a TV series! The first superhero team in Japan makes another comeback! (Lets ignore that previous movie, shall we...?)

Ahh, kind of excited for this. Maybe I'll watch the original TV adaptation.
I like all these revamps though - gives me hope for many other series/franchises that have faded.
(Waiting for more Tanaka Yoshiki~ :>)

Oh nice. I remember watching it a long time ago on Adult Swim/Toonami, but never marked it as completed on my list since I barely remember anything. Maybe I'll watch it again sometime soon

Jizzy as you would call yourself because youre a dick The most butthurt award goes to you And clearly you havent watched that many shows thats why you cant determine if a show is unique or not Or maybe you're just a child who likes common stuffs where hero saves the day and guys gets all the girls. Sad taste you have there kid you came up to me in the first place making you look more like a kid who got slapped without me even knowing it and start crying about it to me

I've seen the 1979 version of Cyborg 009, I'll watch this if it's a TV series of reasonable length like 1-4 cours or just a film.

I think that I was like 10 or 11 years old when this aired on Toonami (I love my childhood :''D)....Seeing vintage shows like these come back to life makes me smile

I will definitely be watching this (I need to re-watch the old Toonami series first though lol)

I'm not familiar with Cyborg 009 series (but I'm an huge Kamen Rider fan).
I only watched the movie from 2012 and I didn't liked it, maybe because everything was happening so fast and it was getting confuse.
I have high hopes that this TV series will change my point of view. :D

Hopefully it will do the franchise more justice than that 2012 movie remake.

Well being a fan of the original series. I'm looking forward to it. Though as for all remakes, I need to be skeptical.

Hopefully another Space Battleship Yamato will happen.

It’d be really neat if they could treat this the same way they did with Casshern and made it an alternative version instead of a remake or continuation. Make it dark and gritty just like Casshern Sins. I don’t know, I think that’d be cool way to approach this.

If this is indeed going to be either a remake or just a continuation of the old series, then I just hope they put some decent amount of budget and effort into it. The 00-numbered cyborgs deserve it.

Anyway, I’m looking forward this. Just hope for the better.

Hearing that it will be the same person that was involved in the 2001 anime version, I am very interested.

I'm pumped for this. I still can't find the final 3 episodes anywhere so I'm glad that they're doing this.

Seeing as how the director is the same one from the 2001 series I believe this new iteration will be good. I enjoyed the 2001 version a lot; I might marathon it to reacquaint myself with the franchise~
