Among the slew of announcements from Netflix today, here’s the one that I’m most excited about: Godzilla Singular Point, the Godzilla anime series from BONES and Orange.
Today Netflix released a bunch of new SP information, including a poster and trailer plus some cast and story details.
According to the ‘flix, the series will center around “the young geniuses Mei Kamino, a female researcher, and Yun Arikawa, a male engineer, as they take on an unprecedented threat with their companions.”

Singular Point is headed to Netflix in 2021. It’ll air on TV in Japan starting in April.
The BONES-and-Orange animated series will be staffed by the following humans:
Director: Atsushi Takahashi
Scripts: Toh Enjoe
Music: Kan Sawada
CG direction: Ryuichi Ikeuchi, Yuushi Koshida, Masashi Suzuki
Visual effects direction: Kensuke Yamamoto
Original character designs: Kazue Kato
Character designs: Satoshi Ishino
Kaiju designs: Eiji Yamamori
Military researcher: Keigo Koyanagi
Art design: Akihiro Hirasawa
Art director: Norihiko Yokomatsu

I think this looks about a thousand times more fun than the CG film trilogy, personally. And I’ll never say no to some more Jet Jaguar in my life!
