Netflix Announces A New Godzilla Anime Series

Netflix has announced the new Godzilla Singular Point, an anime series chronicling the further adventures of everyone’s favorite skyscraper-sized monster lizard and the humans who love it. The series is set to debut sometime in 2021.

According to a release, anime studio Bones (My Hero Academia) will collaborate with Orange (Beastars, Land of the Lustrous) to produce the series, which will be a combination of hand-drawn and CG animation styles. Atsushi Takahashi (Doraemon the Movie 2017: Great Adventure in the Antarctic Kachi Kochi) will direct and is supported by a creative team that includes composer Kan Sawada (Yowamushi Pedal), novelist Toh Enjoe, character designer Kazue Kato (Blue Exorcist), and animator Eiji Yamamori (Princess Mononoke).

Not much has been revealed about Godzilla Singular Point’s plot, other than it will feature all-new characters and a standalone story. Netflix has also released a first look at the characters, which you can check out below.

The announcement of Godzilla Singular Point indicates that Netflix–who is notoriously opaque about its ratings–must have been pleased with how previous Godzilla anime films such as 2017’s Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters and both 2018’s Godzilla: City on the Edge of Battle and Godzilla: The Planet Eater clicked with audiences.
