Netflix just announced a huge lineup of anime series and movies


Netflix’s expansion into anime continues. Today, the streaming service revealed details for a number of exciting shows, ranging from a horror series featuring characters designed by Final Fantasy‘s Yoshitaka Amano to the next chapter in the gundam franchise to another Godzilla show. Here’s everything that was announced:

Mobile suit Gundam Hathaway

The headliner was the return of the classic mech franchise gundam, with a series called Mobile suit Gundam Hathaway. “After Char’s rebellion, Hathaway Noa leads a revolt against Earth Federation, but the encounter with an enemy officer and a mysterious woman changes his fate,” the description reads. It’s listed as coming soon and will eventually be accompanied by a live action gundam film by director Jordan Vogt-Roberts.

Shaman King

August 9 is the debut of augustus Shaman King, a show about shamans fighting each other to become kings. It’s a simple enough premise that seems to be backed up by a lot of action.

Edens Zero

sci fi manga Edens Zero will be an anime, with an impressive looking series about a boy who can control gravity. It comes out on August 26.


We don’t have a trailer for the horror series Exception, but this one piece of teaser art is creepy enough on its own. Perhaps most excitingly, it will feature character designs from famous van Final Fantasy artist Yoshitaka Amano.

Bright: Samurai Soul

There’s no trailer for this one either, but the first image shows a beautiful art style that I can’t wait to see in motion. No word on a premiere date.

make my day

On the movie front, Netflix has also announced make my day, which sounds like it will channel frozen horror classics like The thing: “On a cold planet of ice and snow, mysterious creatures have suddenly appeared from the dark underground and started attacking its inhabitants.”

Godzilla: single point

This Kaiju series debuted on Netflix in Japan earlier this year, but will be available worldwide – and in English – on June 24.
