New Original Animes Announced by Netflix

Pacific Rim

"And the prosperity of Netflix's anime shows has to be aligned with the prosperity of Japanese anime generally". "The beauty of Netflix is that we can take never-seen-before stories from South Korea, Thailand, Japan, India, Taiwan or elsewhere, and easily connect them to people all over Asia and the world". Craig "Thor: Ragnarok" Kyle and Greg "X-Men: Evolution" Johnson will handle the development of the series. Perhaps even more exciting than the announcement of the project itself is the all-star creator behind the new movie.

InCagaster of an Insect Cage, a unusual disease turns people in a post-apocalyptic world into giant, well, insects.

Now, the streaming giant is also looking to push out more specifically into new anime series, including - intriguingly - expanded takes on the world of Pacific Rim and Altered Carbon. To find their parents the sibling pair is forced to pilot an abandoned Jaeger to cross the hostile world. The film is said to "explore new elements of the story mythology", and comes from writer Dai Sato, who previous was a writer and worked on the art department for Cowboy Bebop. Koigi "Last Exile" Chigira directs, with animation duties being handled by Hellsing studio Gonzo.

In the war-torn era of feudal Japan, a retired ronin takes up arms once again after he is charged with the task of transporting a child to safety. Loosely based on the legend of the African samurai who fought with Oda Nobunaga, Yasuke features The Boondocks' LeSean Thomas heading the project while Flying Lotus handles the soundtrack. Lakeith Stanfield (Atlanta, Sorry to Bother You) is voicing Yasuke.

Blizzard has mobile titles in the works for multiple IPs
According to Bloomberg , Activision Blizzard's shares dropped 7.2 percent yesterday as a result of the Diablo Immortal backlash. Diablo is one epic PC game and the announcement of the remake coming out only in mobiles was a huge setback for its fanbase.

It's not the first time Netflix has delved into anime - the service is behind Devilman Crybaby, Sanrio series Aggretsuko, and the anime-inspired Castlevania and Neo Yokio.

Shifting ponds to Manila, Trese focuses on a tale of the Philippine underworld that is home to criminals and mythical beings who have infiltrated human society, as Alexandra Trese finds herself tangling with more malevolent creatures. Created by Budjette Tan and Kajo Baldissimo.

Additionally, Shanty Harmayn and Tanya Yuson at Jakarta- and Singapore-based studio BASE Entertainment are producing an animated series based on the Filipino graphic novel Trese with Jay Oliva as the executive producer.
