Sunrise has recently launched a new official website, and it reveals the latest addition to the Tiger and Bunny franchise. However, it won’t be following our usual heroes, but a pair of detectives in this new “Buddy series” anime. Titled Double Decker! Doug & Kirill, the new series will still take place in the world of Tiger & Bunny, but with different characters.

This buddy cop anime will follow veteran detective, Doug Billingam, who gets a new rookie partner named Kirill Vlueberry. Satoshi Mikami voices the titular Doug, while Kouhei Amasaki voices his new partner, Kirill.

Meanwhile, the website also revealed the anime’s staff. Joji Furuta, who worked on the first TV anime as an episode director, will be taking the helm for this project. Tomohiro Suzuki, who also worked on the original, will also be coming back to oversee the scripts. Meanwhile, Zetman mangaka Masakazu Katsura is also returning as the series character designer.

Bandai Namco will reveal more about the anime during the AnimeJapan 2018 event from 24-25 March 2018. As for the anime itself, it will be making its premiere sometime this year.
