Netflix, known for its impressive array of media franchises, has once again surprised and delighted the anime fandom. While no one saw it coming, the streaming platform today shared a surprising announcement of a new anime project. Apparently, the sci-fi manga titled ‘Time Patrol Bon,’ which came from the brilliant mind of Doraemon creator Fujiko F. Fujio in 1978, is getting an anime adaptation on Netflix.

It’s been a while since the Time Patrol Bon (aka T.P BON) anime was first announced, and now, finally, the streaming giant has confirmed a release date. The T.P Bon anime will get its first season on May 2, 2024, and interestingly, Season 2 will also arrive on the streaming platform on July 17, 2024.

For the unacquainted, the manga’s author has also blessed the community with some definitive series like Doraemon, Perman, and Kiteretsu Daihyakka.

Apart from that, we’ll see the production of the T.P BON series handled by Studio BONES. The studio is well known for anime projects like Bungo Stray Dogs, My Hero Academia, and Fullmetal Alchemist. So, we shouldn’t raise questions about what the animation of the intriguing series T.P BON will look like.

The official trailer for the anime has been released by Netflix recently, and there’s no denying that the animation reminds us of our beloved animated show, Doraemon. Furthermore, the protagonist of the anime looks a lot similar to one of Doraemon’s lead characters, Nobita. This is not only because of the appearance but also because the character resembles Nobita in terms of personality. For instance, like Doraemon’s deuteragonist, T.P BON’s main protagonist appears to be a person who is average in everything but is still happy.

The promo trailer also shows that Bon’s life changes when one of his acquaintances dies in front of his eyes, and the next moment, someone from the future appears in front of him wearing a helmet. The tragic incident traumatizes Bon for a while. After regaining his senses, Bon finds himself surrounded by people who work for an organization called Time Patrol, which helps people who have faced tragic incidents in their lives.
