Default Godzilla Singular Point (Netflix Anime Series)


Quote:
.

The streaming service has ordered a new anime series centering on the classic Japanese monster, with Godzilla Singular Point planned for 2021.

Studio bones, known for My Hero Academia, is partnering with Orange, the studio behind Beastars. The series features a new cast and an original story unrelated to the series of animated films that have made a splash on Netflix including Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters (2017), Godzilla: City on the Edge of Battle (2018) and Godzilla: The Planet Eater (2018).

Filmmaker Atsushi Takahashi, who helmed , will direct Godzilla Singular Point, which will combine hand-drawn and CG animation styles. The creative team also includes Doraemon composer Kan Sawada, sci-fi novelist Toh Enjoe and Blue Exorcist comic creator Kazue Kato. Animator Eiji Yamamori, who has worked on Studio Ghibli films such as Spirited Away, will provide the Kaiju design. []

Should be interesting to see what the premise of this will be, and frankly what the plan will be (limited series, ongoing?).

Very cool. This looks a lot better than the last Godzilla anime mini-series they had.

Going to take some getting used to these designs. But if I accepted 1998 then I can accept these.

I'm just happy it's not completely CG, but balanced out with traditional cel animation as well. Also great seeing some of the classic kaiju being used. That nostalgic piece of music in the trailer helped to win me over, too.

New character bios are up:
https://godzilla-sp.jp/news/201209_01.html

Translation from Toho Kingdom fourm member LSD Jellyfish:

Quote:
Names (from left to right, top to bottom):
Mei Kano
Yun Arikawa
Haberu Katou (Probably Havel Katou)
Gou Ootaki
Satomi Kanahara
Perooo
Yungu
Shunya Satou
Tsunetomo Yamoto
Yukie Kanoko
Takahiro Kai
Keiei Rii
Beira Ban (I suspect the name could be "Bahn), nickname is "BB"
Rina Ban (Same as above, also either married or related)
Yoshiyasu Mabara
Nakagawa Mkita Kei (K)
Teiruda Miller
Finally:
MICHEAL SUTEIBUN: British

Heads up: I'm assuming some of these names are derived from German or English (not originally japanese names).
I'm busy right now, but I'll give some quick updates. Micheal is British apparently.

Mei Kano:
The protagonist of the story. She's a graduate student researching the recent phoneme of the monsters. She's a genius, but often forgets where she leaves her stuff.

Yun, Gou, Havel, and Satomi all work together at the "Ootaki Factory". Let's assume that's where JJ is being made.

Yun (guy with white hair):
He's an otaku and works as an engineer. He's in charge of programming the robots, and I think just started. He's a genius, but he has difficulty relating to others. He gets involved in the fight against Godzilla.

Gou
Gou is the boss/Captain. He's also the founder. It says that he's a world renowned engineer. Something about him seeing a UFO(?) After monsters started appearing, he teamed up with Yun and Havel to create robots to fight the monsters.

Satomi:
I think she works as their secretary. She likes make up and other things like piercing. I think it says her personal life is a mystery.

Perroo (dog thing)
A communication AI developed by Yun. It lives in Mei's PC.
Yunga (the thing that looks like an electrical outlet)
An Ai developed by Yun. It lives in his smartphone. (what if this becomes JJ's consciousness?)

BB
I think BB, did a lot of research in India on opals (?).
I think it says his superiors take a lot of pride in him, but I think he's shy but clever. He takes interesting in pursuing the mystery of the monsters.

Rina Ban
BB's Wife. Then there's a discussion about her and cooking and something.

Teurida (Tilda):
She stands in opposition to BB and Micheal. She's a conservative type. (Both these phrases can mean different things, but I'm already going to assume she's some sort of twist villain). It's hard for me to tell in context if it's just they work together and butt has, or something more sinister.
And new character lineup:

More like late 90's/early 2000's but yeah looks ok

The last movie trilogy I see as some kind of alternative universe godzilla. Bit wired but interesting.
