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

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.

I think it looks pretty cool. Love how they're using the classic sound effects; nicely conveys it's sequel status. Hope it increases Ultraman's status in the US.

Netflix getting the original Evangelion is wild, though.

NGE- The most overrated anime of all time, this is a complete non-event that its coming to Netflix. I am looking forward to Ultraman though, the Manga has been interesting, even if it is quite different from the standard Ultraman fair, reminds me of The Guyver in some respects, but not as violent, which isn't a bad thing.

^ Whether you like it or not Eva is enormously popular and, coupled with the limited availability of the show in the last decade (rights issues?) Netflix making the show available again is a huge deal.

I think the Rebuild movies are better than the original Eva series. I do remember people flipping out over the psychobabble ending of the original show. Teehee.

The animation is pretty dope in the rebuild ones even though they use a lot of CGI animation (it looks good unlike anything polygon makes).

That is good for a quick laugh related to Evangelion.^^^

Limited Availability? Perhaps in terms of physical media, but there are so many other ways to watch this. I can't imagine there is anyone who wants to see this series who already hasn't.

^ Illegal torrents, pricey used DVDs , or imports made it availabe to those already interested, but being widely, legally available is a horse of a different color.

Wow, what a bunch of losers. I mean I know the R1 DVDs have been oop for a while, but I always figure if something is " beloved" enough as they claim this is, then you would do whatever it takes to obtain it. I can't imagine there are that many fans don't already have this. Unless they are just lazy and non committal. I sold my DVDs of this series years ago, and not for all that much either.

Yeah, no matter how widespread bootlegging of a certain piece of media is, even now there's nothing like having an official release widely available. I mean, sure, someone can get the original unaltered Star Wars Trilogy on Blu-ray, but as numerous as those fan copies are they pale in comparison to the amount of people watching the current official releases of those movies.

I'm going to wear my loserdom on my sleeve and say, as someone who's been meaning to watch Evangelion for years, its arrival on Netflix is a blessing.* It means I know exactly where to find it in probably the highest quality, and don't have to pay for and/or deal with the OOP physical media of a show I may not like anyway. Besides, I don't torrent unless it's a pressing matter, and haven't for a few years now. I can wait.

* Assuming it comes to Canadian Netflix, of course. I got burned recently by its lack of The Punisher: War Zone and am ticked off by regional licensing as a concept.

Yes, I don't see what the issue is. If there is some film or TV show I really want to see, I'll do whatever it takes to obtain it (legally of course). and YES I did sell my NGE dvd's years ago? What's so unbelievable about that? I've never found myself saying...Oh thank goodness for NETFLIX, now I can finally watch "insert old movie or TV show name here"

So, let's just say, just for example, you REALLY wanted to see the Yokai Monsters movies, and didn't buy them back when they first came out. You'd drop the $120 for three movies you've never seen?

And even if YOU would (which is crazy, honestly), not everyone has the MEANS to do so. I seriously can't believe you couldn't/wouldn't recognize that.

I own the original Evangelion and I wouldn't pay $120 for that series. It really gets half assed at the end there.

I fully recognize not everyone has the means to do so. I'm probably one of the poorest (financially) sob's on this forum, yet my family manages to have what we need. As far as wants, yeah those are limited. Would I ever pay more than $100 for a VHS or DVD...sure...I have done it before when the funds were available. I just figure if I didn't have the means (which often I don't), that means I don't want it that badly, otherwise I find a way... It just irks me when someone says they can't watch or don't have access to a particular film or TV series. Unless it's Kong in Edo, early Dr. Who, or some other film or TV series lost to time, that's really not the case.

Besides, there was another anime TV series on Netflix that had very similar circumstances. Physical DVD's had long been out of print, and it was from the 1970's, and way more influential than NGE, but i never saw all the buzz about it that NGE is getting. Of course it's no longer on Netflix, and was even available to view for free on Youtube (might still be...) for a time, but still...the similarities in circumstance are there.

If this is truly a chance for someone who really wants to see NGE for the first time, then great, I'm not going to take that away from them (I apologize if that's how it seemed at first) I just wish some people would remember that the American *Anime Boom* of the 1990's is not the start of the story, far from it. The 60's-80's had some of the best, most influential anime films and TV series to this day.

^ It should go without saying that no sane person would want to watch a movie or TV show more badly than they would want to take care of their loved ones and get by from day to day. That's why when the only current "legal" way (if you could call it that) to check out a movie or TV show is to pay unaffordable prices to third-party sellers for out-of-print home media releases, that qualifies as legally unobtainable for anyone who puts real-life responsibilities first by default. That's why when such a title becomes available to watch on a streaming service like Netflix, it becomes the first viable option that isn't piracy for such folks.


Also, I'm pretty sure that Neon Genesis Evangelion was available to stream on Hulu last year. It's not on there now but I remember around the time when Funimation was releasing Shin Godzilla on BRD, I was browsing Hulu and I came across it and I thought "Hm, Evangelion... Hideaki Anno... Shin Godzilla... Maybe I should check that out sometime. I'm surprised it's only 26 episodes. Are a lot of anime series that short?" but I never did check it out. I didn't realize it was currently out of print on home media in North America.
