T・P BON Trailer: Check Out Time Travelling Adventure Anime from the Creators of Doraemon

The robot cat Doraemon is no doubt a Japanese icon, but the creator duo of Fujio Fujio (Hiroshi Fujimoto and Motoo Abiko) had other IP and characters they worked on. One such property is Time Patrol Bon (T・P BON ), and though it got an OVA back in the 80s, Netflix and Studio Bones have teamed up to do a reboot anime.

Check this out:

Here’s the official description for T・P BON:

An ordinary junior high school student encounters the pages of history! A manga by Fujiko F. Fujio gets a new anime series adaptation for the first time in 30 years.

Though on the surface it does look like T・P BON is going to be a kid-friendly series, it does look like the show is going to deal with more mature themes—just look at all the blood and violence we’re getting in the trailer. There’s even a shot of someone about to shoot themselves in the head.

If anything, rebooting old classic anime/manga has been kind of a rising trend recently. Hits like Urusei Yatsura and Ruruouni Kenshin have been getting the modern anime makeover, so it shouldn’t be a surprise that a property from the creators of one of the most infuential characters in Japan pop-culture is going to get the same treatment.

Hopefully we get to see more of it soon since May is just around the corner.

T・P BON is set to premiere on Netflix on May 2, and the second season will premiere on July 17.
