Infini-T Force will start airing in October 2017 to celebrate Tatsunoko Productions’ 55th anniversary. At the Nippon TV booth at AnimeJapan 2017 the cast members of Polymar, Tekkaman, and Casshern were revealed. They will join Tomokazu Seki, who was previously revealed as the voice of Gatchaman G-01/Ken Washio.
Tomokazu Seki said that he has watched Science Ninja Team Gatchaman and that it was a great thing for his generation, and very useful to learn cool lines. He also said about his audition, ‘In all Gatchaman remakes, I always bitterly failed the audition. Finally! At last! The fate has turned! I will portray Gatchaman! I’ll give my best! Yeah! So happy! Bird, Go!’
Tekkaman/Joji Minami will be voiced by Takahiro Sakurai, best known for being the voice of Osomatsu Matsuno in Osomatsu-san. ‘It is an honor to be able to participate in a project to celebrate Tatsunoko Productions’ 55th anniversary. Tekkaman is a famous anime which has been re-made many times. I wonder what will happen in this work. We are gathering all the Tatsunoko heroes together! I will give my best, so make sure to watch it!’
Polymar/Takeshi Yoroi will be voiced by Kenichi Suzumura (voice of Daisuke Shima in Space Battleship Yamato 2199). About this production, he said, ‘It is like my generation was raised by Tatsunoko Productions! Whenever I watched TV, there was a hero! I would have never imagined that there would be a day when I would become Hurricane Polymar. I will work hard to give back to the hero, who inspired me and gave me so many memories. I will express the Polymer kung-fu action with my voice! Look forward to the newest version of the Tatsunoko heroes!’
Casshern/Tetsuya Azuma will be voiced by Soma Saitou, who also voiced Tadashi Yamaguchi in Haikyuu. He said, ‘I never expected to get the chance to become the voice of Casshern, who is loved by so many generations, so I am nervous and excited. I will face his character with confidence and stay true to him. Please watch over me.’
