New Netflix Anime Originals – Pacific Rim & Altered Carbon

If you’re a Netflix household you’ve no doubt noticed the plethora of Netflix Anime available. From series that have been going for a long time like Bleach to new and original series like B: The Beginning. And the shows available are forever expanding. No longer is it necessary to find strange corners of the internet or obscure online shops to watch your favourite anime. 

Netflix has recently announced more anime originals coming to the streaming service. Whilst I’ve been known to watch a little Cowboy Bebop, Castlevania, and Pokémon (with the kids obviously) from time to time I don’t often watch Anime. These new shows have me more than curious.

Looking forward to these

Altered Carbon -which has recently had a live action version– will be set in the same universe and is being written by Dai Sato (Cowboy Bebop) and Tsukasa Kondo. It’s currently in production. 

And secondly because of the Netflix Anime version of Pacific Rim. Yes, I know it’s a bit of a love it or hate it thing. But I have to say I’m in the love it section, particularly of the movies. The anime series will expand the universe as it follows a brother and sister who pilot an abandoned Jaeger in an attempt to find their parents. 

And the Rest

Then there’s a post-apocalyptic series, Cagaster of an Insect Cage. Where a disease turns people into giant insects and follows a young couple as they try to survive. 

Or perhaps you’d prefer to follow the story of a retired Ronin who has to transport a child in danger from dark forces in Yasuke

And finally, Trese, filled with the mythical creatures of Philippine folklore. Based on the graphic novel of the same name it promises a dark world as the hero comes face to face with the supernatural underworld. 

Will you be watching these Netflix Anime?

Even if you’re not normally into anime, the continuation of the universes of Pacific Rim and Altered Carbon is intriguing. It’s a medium I don’t often dip into and rarely consider new shows. But I think it’s time I did as Netflix Anime expands, creating live action versions of much loved anime’s and anime’s of much loved movies and shows. But where do I start…
