    “The Expanse” Renewed For Final Season

    By Koby,

    Amazon has renewed the highly acclaimed sci-fi drama “The Expanse” for a sixth and final season. The order comes in just a few weeks ahead of the show’s fifth season premiere on December 16th.

    The series is based on James S. A. Corey’s novel series which has a ninth entry on the way in 2021. The seventh book sees a time jump of thirty years and so a sixth season based on the sixth book seems a natural disembarkation point.

     

    The series aired its first three seasons on Syfy with the cable network cancelling it. Then Amazon went into talks and picked up the series with the fourth season released late last year.

     

    The show stars the likes of Steven Strait, Shohreh Aghdashloo, Dominique Tipper, Cas Anvar, Wes Chatham and Frankie Adams. All will return except Anvar following his facing numerous sexual misconduct allegations during the summer.

     

    Showrunner Naren Shankar is also back for the last batch of episodes which will begin production in January.


    Netflix Reveals Spriggan Anime Series' New Teaser Trailer

    By Koby,

    Netflix revealed a teaser trailer for David Production's new anime series based on Hiroshi Takashige and Ryōji Minagawa's Spriggan (Striker) manga.

     

     

    Hiroshi Kobayashi (Rage of Bahamut Genesis assistant director, Kill la Kill episode director) is directing the anime. Hiroshi Seko (Attack on Titan, Mob Psycho 100, Jujutsu Kaisen) is supervising and writing the series scripts, and Shūhei Handa (Little Witch Academia) is designing the characters.

     

    Netflix will debut the anime worldwide in 2021.

     

    The manga's story centers on Yū Ominae, a high school student who is also a Spriggan, an agent charged by the ARCAM Corporation to protect the ancient relics of an advanced older civilization from falling into the hands of states and entities who wish to misuse them.

     

    Takashige wrote the Spriggan manga with artist Minagawa beginning in 1989. Viz Media published edited versions of three of the manga's eleven volumes as Striker in North America from 1998 to 1999. The manga inspired an anime film in 1998. ADV Films released the film in 2002 with an English dub.


    Way of the Househusband Manga Gets 2021 Anime Series Starring Kenjiro Tsuda

    By Koby,

    oUTG2pb.jpgNetflix Anime Festival 2020 announced that Kousuke Oono's The Way of the Househusband (Gokushufudō) manga is inspiring an anime series debuting worldwide on Netflix in 2021. The anime stars Kenjiro Tsuda, who both directed and starred as Tatsu in a live-action promotional video for the manga last December.

     

    Chiaki Kon (Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Crystal: Season III, Devils and Realist, Junjō Romantica) is directing the anime at J.C. Staff, and Susumu Yamakawa (Back Street Girls: Gokudols) is supervising the series scripts.

     

    The Way of the Househusband follows a retired yakuza member known as "Immortal Tatsu" who is living out his post-crime career as a househusband. He still manages to find his way into trouble from time to time, except it's in the grocery aisle instead of some back alley.

     

    Oono launched the manga on Shinchosha's Kurage Bunch website in February 2018, and Shinchosha published the fifth volume on June 9. Viz Media is publishing the manga in English, and it released the fourth volume on September 15.

     

    The manga won the Best Humor Publication category at this year's Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards. The series was acknowledged as a runner-up in last year's Tsugi ni Kuru Manga Awards' web manga category and came in at #9 in this year's Web Manga General Election. The Kono Manga ga Sugoi! guidebook for 2019 ranked the manga at #8 for its top manga series for men. The series also ranked on Honya Club's "Nationwide Bookstore Employees' Recommended Comics" lists for 2018 and 2019.

     

    The manga inspired an ongoing live-action television series.

    Netflix posted a new visual and updated teaser trailer for the four-episode original anime Eden on Tuesday, and also revealed its May 2021 premiere date. (The anime was previously scheduled for Fall 2020.)

     

     

    Netflix describes the anime:

    The upcoming sci-fi fantasy series Eden is set thousands of years in the future, where a city known as “Eden 3” is inhabited solely by robots whose former masters vanished a long time ago. On a routine assignment, two farming robots accidentally awaken a human baby girl from stasis questioning all they were taught to believe -- that humans were nothing more than a forbidden ancient myth. Together, the two robots secretly raise the child in a safe haven outside Eden.
