Weekly news recap: Netflix whets our appetite

With a new batch of Voltron: Legendary Defender episodes hitting this weekend and a Death Note film in three weeks, it’s a good time for otaku to pay attention to Netflix. Evidently they concur, since a lot of new projects were announced last Wednesday:

  • A new trailer for Devilman crybaby, giving us a first glimpse at how the human characters will be rendered.

  • Just when we all assumed it had been quietly cancelled, Sword Gai has been confirmed for spring, simulcast via Netflix. Anything Keita Amemiya is a cause for excitement, and I hope this also prompts Viz to release the manga stateside.

  • A 12-episode CG series based on Saint Seiya is also on the way. The Legend of Sanctuary movie was alright, so there’s some potential here, but I also sort of think they should just show the original.

  • Netflix also picked up Cannon Busters (thankfully that’s getting a full series), and the new Baki adaptation. This is going to keep us busy!

That’s really it for this week; it’s been a short one!
