Altered Carbon anime series confirmed ahead of season 2

Pacific Rim Netflix Announces Pacific Rim, Altered Carbon, 3 More Anime Originals

Content, content, content is what Netflix is all about, and the streaming behemoth is planning to offer a ton of original Asian shows and films.

Cagaster of an Insect Cage.

After a successful season of live-action television, Netflix sci-fi hit Altered Carbon is getting the anime treatment. But the question is whether the new original anime series from Craig Kyle (Thor:Ragnarok) and Greg Johnson (X-Men: Evolution) can make the transition back to anime without seeming like a derivative story - there's a difference between seeing all those mecha anime tropes in a big bombastic blockbuster, and seeing it back in anime form, where dozens of other series follow the exact same narrative.

As for Altered Carbon, production on season two is thought to be underway with estimations of a late 2019 release date. It will star a teenage boy and his younger sister, who take control of an abandoned Jaeger as they travel across the country in search of their parents.

That leaves three other series: Cagaster of an Insect Sage, Yasuke, and Trese.

Dwyane Wade, Gabrielle Union-Wade have a baby
In the post, Wade welcomed the baby girl born Wednesday night via surrogate using lyrics from Bill Withers' song " Lovely Day ". The NBA guard has three sons and the couple is also raising one of his nephews, according to The Associated Press.

Now, the streaming giant is also looking to push out more specifically into new anime series, including - intriguingly - expanded takes on the world of Pacific Rim and Altered Carbon.

Dai Sato will be writing the Altered Carbon film alongside Tsukasa Kondo. It is directed by Koichi Chigira ("Last Exile", "Full Metal Panic!") and produced by animation studio: Gonzo ("Hellsing", "Afro Samurai").

In the war-torn era of feudal Japan, a retired ronin takes up arms once again after he is charged with the task of transporting a child to safety. Lakeith Stanfield will be the voice of the protagonist "Yasuke" (based on the historical samurai of African origin who fought with Oda Nobunaga). MAPPA has already animated one Netflix Original series already, the gambling anime Kakegurui. Budjette Tan and Kajo Baldisimo's graphic novel centers on Alexandra Trese, a supernatural investigator who solves crimes in the city of Manila where figures from Filipino mythology interact with the modern world.

Additionally, Shanty Harmayn and Tanya Yuson at Jakarta- and Singapore-based studio BASE Entertainment are producing an animated series based on the Filipino graphic novel Trese with Jay Oliva as the executive producer.
