Very stimulating has been the avalanche of trailers of animated series that Netflix has presented as part of its Geeked Week and that so far has already given us a few series and movies. From an adaptation of CD Projekt Red’s ‘Cyberpunk’ to a foray into the disturbing mind of mangaka Junji Ito. Here are some of the advances.
Very elaborate aesthetics are reminiscent of the half pictorial airs, half CGI of ‘Arcane’. Scheduled for autumn, at the moment nothing is known about its plot, although its urban appearance is already captivating. It is signed by Kid Cudi and Kenya Barris (creator of ‘Black-ish’) and presents in its trailer a real roster of stars in the voices.
‘Cyberpunk – Edgerunners’
CD Projekt Red’s controversial but visually very inspiring video game continues to provide trailers for the animated series with anime aesthetics that recreate its ruthless future world. Ultraviolence, anime aesthetics, cyber plants, super-combs, all in an adventure that is expected in September 2022.
‘Junji Ito Maniac: Japanese Tales of the Macabre’
There are no moving images yet, but we have had the mangaka specialized in mutant and perverse horror Junji Ito announcing ‘Junji Ito Maniac: Japanese Tales of the Macabre’, which will adapt a score of his stories that have never been seen in animated format. Among those he has confirmed is one of his best-known manga, ‘Tomie’, as well as the disturbing ‘Souichi’ and ‘The Hanging Balloons’. It will arrive in 2023.
‘Kong: Skull Island’
Just a photo of a giant footprint has given us Netflix about its series based on Warner’s Monsterverse. But it is clear that the production, along with the announced adaptation of Lara Croft’s adventures, is moving forward.
