Netflix has announced five new anime titles are in development, including series based on Pacific Rim and Altered Carbon.

Check out the details from Netflix's press release below, and bask in the glow of all of that talent! "And the prosperity of Netflix's anime shows has to be aligned with the prosperity of Japanese anime generally". The series comes from the film franchise's Legendary Entertainment. The series will return and expand upon the story of the first 2 films with the narrative focused on two siblings. According to the report, the series will focus on "an idealistic teenage boy and his naïve younger sister" as they attempt to find their parents while piloting an abandoned Jaeger. Craig Kyle and Greg Johnson are the showrunners for Legacy Entertainment. I'm just crossing my fingers that Guillermo del Toro (and especially Charlie Day and Burn Gorman) are involved somehow.

Fans of Samurai Champloo and Cowboy Bebop will be happy to hear that writer Dai Sato is the co-writer of the series alongside fellow writer Tsukasa Kondo. Anima is producing the animation.

Set in a post-apocalyptic world where a mysterious disease "Cagaster" turns people into giant murderous insects, this manga-based series follows the struggle of a young couple to stay alive.
We can expect a beautifully made anime as animation studio: Gonzo is the studio that will develop the series. The mysterious child is being hunted by dark forces that wish it dead, bringing his sword out of retirement the ronin has no choice but to fight once more.

In addition to the Pacific Rim and Altered Carbon projects, Netflix also announced a slew of other titles.
