The King of Monsters is back, and he’s getting a new anime. This time, Netflix is teaming up with two famous anime studios in BONES and Orange for the new Godzilla Singular Point anime series. The streaming service is planning to stream the new series globally starting 2021. They even released two new visuals as well:
Doraemon the Movie 2017: Great Adventure in the Antarctic Kachi Kochi’s Atsushi Takahashi will be directing the anime. Meanwhile, famous Japanese science-fiction novelist Toh Enjoe will be working on his first TV anime. As for the designs, Kazue Kato will be the character designer for those puny humans, while legendary animator Eiji Yamamori, who has worked on various Studio Ghibli movies like Princess Mononoke and Spirited Away, will be designing the kaijuu.
