Godzilla fans have something else to look forward to next year with a brand new anime series, Godzilla Singular Point, on Netflix! Get your first look here!
Looks like Godzilla vs. Kong isn’t the only thing kaiju fans will be able to look forward to seeing next year (unless that gets delayed again). This evening brings word of Godzilla Singular Point, a brand new anime series on Netflix.
This won’t be related to the trilogy of anime films (Planet of the Monsters) currently available on the streaming service, but something brand new. Coming from the anime studios behind My Hero Academia and Beastars, the new show will blend traditional hand-drawn style with CG animation.
I’m very excited to see a new Godzilla series done in a 2D animated style and considering the people behind it, I think we’re in for a treat. Just look at the concept designs they’ve released to go with the news:
Following the success of Godzilla anime films, Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters, Godzilla: City on the Edge of Battle and Godzilla: The Planet Eater comes an all new original anime series from director Atsushi Takahashi (Doraemon the Movie 2017: Great Adventure in the Antarctic Kachi Kochi).
Anime studio bones (My Hero Academia) in partnership with studio Orange, (Beastars, Land of the Lustrous) will produce the series combining hand-drawn and CG animation styles.
In addition to director Takahashi, the creative team includes Kan Sawada, composer for countless Doraemon films and series such as Yowamushi Pedal, Japanese science-fiction novelist Toh Enjoe making his TV debut as editor and writer for the series, Kazue Kato creator of Blue Exorcist and the hit comic currently serialized in Jump Square will serve as the character designer, and animator Eiji Yamamori from Studio Ghibli films including Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away and The Wind Rises will do the Kaiju design.
Godzilla Singular Point is set to arrive in 2021.
