Netflix drops trailers for two new anime series
Staff Reporter | On 29, Oct 2019
Netflix is seriously stepping up its commitment to anime, with two new projects unveiled in the past week.
The Disastrous Life of Saiki K.: Reawakened was first announced back in March at AnimeJapan 2019, and marks a new entry in the long-running franchise. While previous seasons of the hit comedy manga have been released exclusively by Netflix outside of Japan, the Reawakened series will be a Netflix original.
“Being an esper seems cool on TV, but in Saiki Kusuo’s life as a normal teenager it’s a real drag” reads the official synopsis of the show, which will premiere on 30th December worldwide on Netflix.
Also unveiled in the past week is the new trailer for Eden. The first Netflix Japanese original anime is presented by director Yasuhiro Irie (Fullmetal Alchemist) and concept designer Toshihiro Kawamoto (Cowboy Bebop).
It is set thousands of years into the future, when there are no more humans. Only robots live in the mechanical metropolis, “Eden 3”. Or so they thought. One day, two farming robots find a young human girl in the city. The decision they make will change everything…
Eden will premiere on Netflix worldwide in 2020. Here’s the trailer:
