Deadline November 7, 2018:
Netflix Unveils ‘Pacific Rim’, ‘Altered Carbon’ & More In New Lineup Of Anime Originals
Dino-Ray Ramos wrote:Netflix is expanding their animation slate with five new anime titles which include gigantic battling robots battling huge monsters, postapocalyptic worlds, and a supernatural criminal underworld. The new slate continues Netflix’s global reach when it comes to original content.

Pacific Rim, which expands the world of the two live-action movies of the same name, returns to the epic battle of Kaiju and Jaegers. The original anime series follows two siblings — an idealistic teenage boy and his naïve younger sister — who are forced to pilot an abandoned Jaeger across a hostile landscape in a desperate attempt to find their missing parents. Co-showrunners are Craig Kyle (Thor:Ragnarok) and Greg Johnson (X-Men: Evolution). The series comes from Legendary Entertainment (Kong: Skull Island; Pokemon: Detective Pikachu)

Set in the same universe as the Netflix-live-action sci-fi series — which is currently in production — Altered Carbon
will explore new elements of the story mythology. The series comes from the animation studio, Anima and will be written by Dai Sato (Cowboy Bebop, Samurai Champloo) and Tsukasa Kondo.

From the animation studio Gonzo (Hellsing, Afro Samurai), Cagaster of an Insect Cage is set in a post-apocalyptic world where a mysterious disease “Cagaster” turns people into giant murderous insects, this manga-based series follows the struggle of a young couple to stay alive. Koichi Chigira (Last Exile, Full Metal Panic!) directs.
Set in a war-torn Japan of mechs and magic, Yasuke follows a retired ronin who must take up his sword when he is charged with the task of transporting a mysterious child who dark forces want to eliminate. The series from the animation studio MAPPA will feature the voice of Sorry to Bother You star Lakeith Stanfield as the titular protagonist, which is based on the historical samurai of African origin who fought with Oda Nobunaga. Creator/Director/Executive Producer is LeSean Thomas (The Boondocks, Cannon Busters) while the Grammy-nominated Flying Lotus will compose the music and serve as an Executive Producer.

Trese is set in a Manila where the mythical creatures of Philippine folklore live in hiding amongst humans, Alexandra Trese finds herself going head to head with a criminal underworld comprised of malevolent supernatural beings. This anime series is based on the Philippine graphic novel by the same name, created by Budjette Tan and Kajo Baldissimo. Jay Oliva (Wonder Woman, The Legend of Korra) will serve as Executive Producer. Producers are Shanty Harmayn and Tanya Yuson at BASE Entertainment, a studio based in Jakarta and Singapore.

Hmmmmmmm.... well isn't this a surprise! Uprising sapped my excitement for the franchise without del Toro's involvement, but I'll give this a chance.

I'm pleasantly surprised to see this actually happening, though I'm not thrilled by that kidified plot. Just please don't hire Polygon Pictures to do the animation, Legendary. Seriously, anyone but Polygon.

Wow, right after seeing Uprising with my son back March, he asked if they were going to make the 3rd film that the ending teased....I knew pretty much it would not make enough box office to warrant that but I did think back to the Godzilla animated series based off the 1998 films and said...."NO, there wont be another film, but an animated series would be kind of neat..." 8) . I didn't think it would actually happen, but I'm pleasantly surprised it is
There are no more good TV Shows, only ones that haven't disappointed me yet.

Like any animation studio it depends on the level of investment. Polygon can produce beautiful looking series (Star Wars Clone Wars, Transformers Prime ) or cut rate garbage (Star Wars Resistance & Transformers Robots in Disguise)

This was my first thought, but then i remembered the comics. As much as I love the movie Pacific Rim (and just about anything with giant monsters), outside of the first film this franchise has been completely disappointingly weak misses. That said GDT killed it with the first film which still holds up tremendously well.
