Kuala Lumpur, January 15, 2021: Malaysia’s latest animation company, SpaceSheep Studio, launched its first big venture “Iron Punch” last Tuesday, January 12th 2021. Iron Punch, a family-friendly animated series is a comedic take on the heroic rangers piloting a Super Robot to fight monster’s trope.
Produced by SpaceSheep Studio in 2020, the first episode of Iron Punch was released this week, January 12th 2021, on YouTube, targeting parents and young children as the key audiences. The series follow Red and Blue, two Fulltime Rangers employed by the EDF (Earth Defence Force) to protect Ultra-City One from monstrous threats, the likes of Kaiju. The Fulltime Rangers accomplished this with the help of the powerful Super Robot, Rock5.
The slapstick comedy introduces Fulltime Rangers Red and Blue in their early twenties. Red is hard-headed and aims to be a hero while pudgy Blue chooses to defend UltraCity One all for the sake of free food. This clash of both personality traits complement one another, providing humour and entertainment for the audience.
Super Robot Rock5, on the other hand, is merely a year old and enjoys reading and sunbathing, with cleanliness being integral to it. Initially a breakthrough creation of the EDF Science Department, it is equipped with signature ‘Rocket Fists’ and reaches supersonic speed with its built-in Rocket Boosters. While stoic and serious at times, Rock5 loves to have fun as well.
Rock5 fights Iron Punch’s key villain, Kaiju, a 45-year-old monster who hails from a distant planet come to invade Earth. Kaiju character is chaotic, dirty and likes Durians but dislikes showers and coriander; a polar opposite of Rock5.
“We here at SpaceSheep Studio have been anxiously awaiting the release of Iron Punch. I am very proud of our team of storytellers and animators for the successful launch of this series, and I’m looking forward to our audience growing to love Iron Punch as we continue to release more episodes via YouTube,” said Goh Chee Seng, Director and Founder of SpaceSheep Studio. “It has been a challenging yet exciting journey getting the Iron Punch characters on-screen, and I’m hoping this will open many doors for our studio’s prospects.”
Picture your favourite heroes taking a tea break during an intense battle, or a Kaiju wreaking havoc on your city just to get a better spot for suntanning – that is what Iron Punch is all about. Prospective viewers can stay tune on Iron Punch’s YouTube channel for the new episode every fortnight.
