In 2015, Denkou Choujin Gridman inspired an animated short directed by Akira Amemiya and produced by Studio Trigger for the Japan Animator Expo. Entitled, Denkou Choujin Gridman: boys invent great hero (電光超人グリッドマン boys invent great hero Denkō Chōjin Guriddoman Boizu Inbento Gurēto Hīrō), it debuted on January 16, 2015. It features the return of Takeshi Todo and the brief appearance of Gridman Sigma (グリッドマンシグマ Guriddoman Shiguma), another Hyper Agent like Gridman who never made it to the show's final cut. The entire short took place in 22 years after Gridman's final battle with Khan Digifer. Takeshi Todo, a former brainwashed servant of Khan, reflects on the past incidents as monster attacks take place in real life. Using the Acceptor, he transforms into Gridman Sigma before facing the monsters.


22 years ago... A boy, Takeshi Todo, attempted to take over the world together with the devil of the Computer World. He reformed himself after the battle and now needs the power of the Hyper Agent. Again, the evil is going to appear in the real world. A materialized monster is now approaching! Enter the battle code! The Access Code is..."GRIDMAN".
