The anime series is inspired by Lotte’s Bikkuriman snack stickers. Earlier Bikkuriman anime include Bikkuriman, Shin Bikkuriman, Super Bikkuriman, Bikkuriman 2000, and Happy Lucky Bikkuriman. The first Bikkuriman aired in the late 80s, while Happy Lucky Bikkuriman aired from 2006 to 2007. Bikkuri-men will feature a “completely new original story” that sees characters such as Yamato and Phoenix being reincarnated in modern times.
