Fuji TV and BS Fuji broadcast the anime from April 2 until June 25 (during a time when Japan was recovering from the 2011 earthquake) for 13 episodes.
Unusually, the anime features popular English-language songs (as well as the Spanish song "La Bamba") including the likes of Madonna, Roy Orbison, Go West, David Bowie, VideoKids and other musicians/bands.
The series will be dubbed into English late 2011.
The series, which picks up where the Donkey Kong 64 anime film left off, has a new premise in which Cranky Kong and King K. Rool signed a peace treaty and both groups live in peace. At times, however, there may be predicaments linked to the Kremlings.
List coming soon!
The entire series DVD set will be released on July 6, 2011 by Pony Canyon.
