TubiTV Adds Monsuno, Treasure Island, and Black Jack 21 Anime
All three titles will made available with complete seasons on the service.
Tubi TV has enriched its anime catalog by introducing three noteworthy titles to its selection. These new additions encompass "Black Jack 21," the follow-up to the 2004 anime adaptation of Osamu Tezuka's "Black Jack" manga, alongside the Japanese-animated series "Monsuno," which was conceived by Yoshiaki Okumura, and the 1978 anime rendition of "Treasure Island," helmed by Osamu Dezaki.
"Black Jack 21," originally aired between April and September 2006 on YTV, consists of 17 episodes. It is a direct extension of the 62-episode anime adaptation of Osamu Tezuka's "Black Jack" manga broadcast from 2004 to 2006. Notably, Anime Sols, a now-defunct streaming and crowdfunding platform, provided funding and released the initial 26 episodes on DVD with English subtitles. In comparison, Crunchyroll streamed the first 28 episodes with English subtitles. In August 2018, Amazon Prime offered the series with a fresh dubbing.
Conversely, "Monsuno" debuted on TV Tokyo in October 2012 before reaching audiences in the United States through the Nicktoons channel in February 2012. This action-packed series, spanning 52 episodes, revolves around the concept of "re-awakened Monster DNA" that inadvertently falls into the hands of adventurous young boys. The project came to fruition through the collaboration of Jakks Pacific, Dentsu Entertainment USA, FremantleMedia Enterprises, and The Topps Company.
Yoshiaki Okumura, renowned for works such as "Antique Bakery" and "Elementhunters," assumed the directorial role for the "Monsuno" anime at Larx Entertainment. Character design duties were entrusted to Yuichiro Hayashi, who was celebrated for his contributions to "PES: Peace Eco Smile" and "Sōten Kōro." At the same time, the musical score was crafted by Shinnosuke, known for his work on "Blue Exorcist" and "Sorcerous Stabber Orphen."
Lastly, "Treasure Island" is a classic 1978 anime series directed by Osamu Dezaki, inspired by Robert Louis Stevenson's enduring novel. Discotek Media made the 26-episode series available on Blu-ray Disc in March, allowing viewers to experience it in 1080p resolution with Japanese audio and English subtitles.
