The Phantom Agents is an American animated adaption of the Japanese television series of the same name. The show is animated by Animation Collective, Inc. using the same animation/anime style like that of the show's previous works, Kappa Mikey. The show features some footage from the Taiwan show, Phili during some action shows. The show is premiering on Cartoon Network on October 12, 2012.
The series is actually a reboot of Wulin Warriors, another Cartoon Network that uses footage from Phili. Unlike Wulin Warriors, The Phantom Agents features a popular fanbase and more humor as it's in a Japanese anime style instead of puppet live-action series, plus the opening sequence features voice talents of Sean Schemmel and Vic Mignoga which also increased it's popularity. The show was commissioned a second season by Cartoon Network.
The world is doomed of being overtaken by the Black Flags and now 17 year old Kai, who is the keeper of the Ghost Sword and next in line for the Phantom Agents Organization, must train and alline his team in order to defeat them once and for all.
Similar to the original series, sometimes the characters carries guns which is used as the last resort, although some of them slip up. At the beginning of the show, one of the character says, "Don't do that. Guns are our last resort. Remember we are Phantom Agents."
