Sukiyaki Yuki (すき焼き由紀Sukiyaki yuki-san) is a Japanese anime series produced by Toei Animation for Shonen Jumps. The cartoon was originally a TV movie which debuted on TV Tokyo in November 1, 2012 but later split into six full-length episodes, all of them airing on November 2, 2012. An English version was produced by Viz Media which aired in Cartoon Network on November 3, 2012 featuring the lead voices of Jason Marsden and Tom Kenny.
The cartoon seems to be an anime twist between "Ranma 1/2" and "Astro Boy". Two Oriental high-school boys (Yuki Miyamoto and Saburo Ping) fell into the mystical springs that gave them superpowers; Yuki went into the spirit where the robot warrior drowned so he becomes a cyborg and Saburo went into the spirit where the god panda drowned so he becomes half-panda. But, an evil villain named Dr. Dread plans to rule the world using his mystical Kill Ray.
