If you’re new to Anpanman, this franchise first began in 1973 as a picture book series created by Takashi Yanase (やなせ たかし). It follows the adventures of superhero Anpanman who battles against Baikinman and encounters a huge myriad of supporting characters along the way. This series quickly evolved into one of the biggest franchises in Japan and is still one of the biggest around today.
