The official website for the Eagle Talon (Himitsu Kessha Taka no Tsume) comedy anime franchise announced on Monday that the franchise will have a new spinoff television anime series titled Yoshida Katsuko no Yabai wa! SDGs ~Araburu! Trouble! Sustainable!~ (Katsuko Yoshida's Plight! SDGs: Irascible! Trouble! Sustainable!). The 13-episode series will premiere on Asahi Broadcasting and on YouTube on October 4.
The anime centers on Katsuko Yoshida, the cousin of Eagle Talon's Yoshida-kun, and an employee in Kemonomichi Electronics' "special general affairs" section. She educates her poorly informed colleagues about their misunderstandings of Sustainable Development Goals, the United Nations-backed goals for member nations to attain a sustainable future.
Eagle Talon creator FROGMAN first used the character in DLE's "Miru Dake de, Ippō Mae Susumeru Series" (Just By Watching, You Can Take a Step Forward Series) anime shorts in March earlier this year, where Katsuko corrects the bad management and corporate workplace culture in the company.
Once again, FROGMAN is directing, writing, and designing the characters for the anime, and also voicing the regular characters alongside Hinaki Yano and Asa Ueno. DLE is producing the anime. EYRIE is composing the music.
The original Eagle Talon Flash anime centers on the titular secret society and its bumbling attempts to take over the world. The production company DLE Inc. launched the first Himitsu Kessha Taka no Tsume (Secret Society Eagle Talon) television series in 2006, and the series spawned nine films. Artist FROGMAN serves as the "director/writer/character designer/sound Recording Engineer/Flash animator/editor/voice actor."
Crunchyroll streamed an Eagle Talon short as its very first legally authorized anime in February 2008.
Eagle Talon: Golden Spell (Himitsu Kessha Taka no Tsume: Golden Spell), the series' eighth season, premiered in October 2020. It was the anime's first standalone television anime since 2009's Himitsu Kessha Taka no Tsume: Countdown. Crunchyroll streamed the anime as it aired.
