As part of the Netflix Geeked Week, we got the first look of the Godzilla: Singular Point English dub coming to Netflix later this month.
The clip, which you can see below, shows what this particular version of Jet Jaguar, a mech built by members of the Otaki Factory, looks like. It cuts to one of the anime’s main protagonists, Yun Arikawa, as he works on the mech and a couple of kids bust his chops about how “bad” its name is. The kids then see something in the sky, which turns out to be one of of the most well-known kaiju, Rodan. The flying monster then begins making a mess of the town. It seems to uniquely blend both classic and 3D animation.
Godzilla: Singular Point is an anime produced by Toho Company Ltd., Bones, and Orange. It premiered on Netflix Japan in March 2021, and was televised in April 2021. The show’s international release is scheduled for June 24, 2021. There are a total of 13 episodes in the first season, each running around 23 minutes.
Atsushi Takahashi directed Godzilla: Singular Point. Toh Enjoe wrote and edited it while Kan Sawada provided music.
This is just one of several animated projects Netflix has been working on. During the Netflix Geeked Week stream, Zack Snyder revealed he’s working on a Norse-based animated series called Twilight of the Gods. The streaming service also announced it is working on an animated feature of the iconic Japanese superhero Ultraman.
