Kinnikuman Anime Makes a Comeback to Celebrate its 40th Anniversary!

The wrestling manga Kinnikuman, which began in 1979 and was created by the manga artist pair known as Yudetamago, produced a popular anime series in 1983, followed by films and other media. The series was even re-released in North America as Ultimate Muscle: The Kinnikuman Legacy, delivering the over-the-top combat to a wider audience.

Kinnikuman’s influence on the shounen genre cannot be overstated, and it continues to inspire new generations of manga and anime creators to this day. Its unique blend of comedy, action, and heart has made it a beloved classic that will always hold a special place in the hearts of fans worldwide.

And the fans of the series can experience the series once again, as on Friday, a new Twitter account for the Kinnikuman franchise opened and announced that the series is getting a new anime to celebrate its 40th anniversary.

This new anime is intended to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the original Kinnikuman series, but so far, we don’t know what this brand-new series will cover or how it will be presented. While no official studio has been confirmed for the project, Toei Animation is mentioned as a member of the show’s production committee.

Nevertheless, the Kinnikuman manga is still being published today owing to its sequel, and hopefully, when the anniversary anime premieres, this old superhero series will receive the appropriate love it deserves.
