Netflix have announced a partnership that will no doubt excite and terrify fans of horrific anime and manga, as they team with Production IG, the animation studio who brought us Attack on Titan and Ghost in the Shell, for an original anime series called Perfect Bones.
The series will run for 12 episodes, and will be directed by Kazuto Nakazawa. Geek Tyrant report that the press release builds the world:
“Set in the future where scientists have tried to create the ‘perfect human’ in hopes of keeping peace in the universe. After nearly achieving their goal through several children, the scientists send their ‘new humans’ for further training where they are kidnapped by an evil organization set on using their powers to implement their own concept of a new world order.”
Netflix’s Erik Barmack also released the following statement:
“We are incredibly excited to work with Production IG, who have worked on hit series such as Attack on Titan and Psycho-Pass, in bringing one of the most daring new Anime titles produced today to all Netflix members and anime fans around the world. In an era where the Internet knows no bounds, we are proud to deliver high quality original Anime to fans all over the world, at the exact same time, no matter where they live whether it be Japan, France, Mexico, the US, and beyond.”
Mitsuhisa Ishikawa, President & CEO of Production IG also had something to say:
“Among all the TV series and films Netflix offers, the titles I personally find the most amazing are Netflix originals. Production IG is eager to present another impactful title brought through our creators’ passion and imagination. We’re very excited about Perfect Bones.”
Netflix is no stranger to anime, with the service offering many titles already, however the release of Perfect Bones will be the first anime series to exclusively debut there. All we need now is the release date, which as of this announcement has not been mentioned yet.
