Itadakiman (イタダキマン?) is the seventh in the Time Bokan series.


The story begins in the year 20XX. Oshaka School in Kamakuland is a world-renowned school where only those who are pure and clearheaded descendants of Priest Sanzo's clan may be admitted. The trio of villains firmly believe they are genuine descendants of Priest Sanzo's clan, although they are of uncertain lineage. They study hard to enter the school in spite of their repeated failure. One day, three intelligent children are called in by the principal and asked to find a set of missing copper plates scattered all over the world. The plates are to be used to complete a puzzle board, which will bring honor to the Oshaka School. The conversation is overheard by the trio of villain, and they decide to stop the youngsters.[2]

The story is aimed at a more adult audience, with the female villain often losing her clothes during the story. Generally, the story parodies previous series, spoofing various recurring themes and set pieces, such as giant robots, good vs. evil, being a villain, transforming/upgrading existing machines to become much stronger, authorities, and the social life of working adults. The show was cancelled after twenty episodes because of very low audience rate.

The show's title is a play on the Japanese saying "Itadakimasu," said before beginning a meal.
