Yasuke is going to be fire.
On Wednesday (November 7th) Netflix announced five new Anime (including a pretty cool Pacific Rim spinoff.) However, the show that is really on our radar is Yasuke. According to Deadline, the show will be about “a retired ronin who must take up his sword when he is charged with the task of transporting a mysterious child who dark forces want to eliminate.”
What’s exciting is the names that are involved. Sorry to Bother You star Lakeith Stanfield will be doing the voice of the protagonist. And Flying Lotus will be composing the music for the show. He will also be serving as Executive Producer.
YASUKE is gonna be great, we are working with one of the top anime studios in the world to bring this crazy story to life. So proud to be part of it and glad to finally share the news thats been brewing for almost a year now @netflix

The show’s director will be LeSean Thomas who famously worked on Adult Swim’s The Boondocks.
