A "Pacific Rim" anime series and Chinese-language "Triad Princess" are among a slate of new shows unveiled on Thursday by Netflix.

(SPOT.ph) More and more Filipino titles have been added to Netflix's slate recently. Within the 17 new Asian Originals announced, 5 of which are brand new anime titles. Let us know in the comments!

Budjette Tan's comic series "Trese" will soon be streamed as an anime on Netflix.

With just over $290 million earned worldwide from a $150 million budget, Pacific Rim's film aspirations are about as deceased as the remains of the Crimson Typhoon crew. The series will return and expand upon the story of the first 2 films with the narrative focused on two siblings. The brother is described as an idealistic teenager while his younger sister is the more naive of the two. Pacific Rim has also received the green light, with X-Men and Wolverine writers Craig Kyle and Greg Johnson at the helm.

Production is of the anime is being handled by Legendary Entertainment.

That's not the only familiar project getting a new anime project from Netflix - the streaming service is forging ahead with an animated feature film in the universe of Altered Carbon, the body-hopping cyberpunk show that began in live-action form earlier in 2018.

Fans of Samurai Champloo and Cowboy Bebop will be happy to hear that writer Dai Sato is the co-writer of the series alongside fellow writer Tsukasa Kondo. Anima is producing the animation. Set in a post-apocalyptic world where a mysterious disease "Cagaster" turns people into giant murderous insects, this manga-based series follows the struggle of a young couple to stay alive. We can expect a beautifully made anime as animation studio: Gonzo is the studio that will develop the series.

With Japan ravaged by a war that saw magic and mechs used on the battlefield, a wandering ronin finds himself wielding a sword once again as he fights to protect a child who is being hunted by sinister forces. Thomas is also involved in another Netflix Original project Cannon Busters. Lakeith Stanfield will be the voice of the protagonist "Yasuke" (based on the historical samurai of African origin who fought with Oda Nobunaga). MAPPA (Yuri! on Ice, Kakegurui) is producing the animation. So it's good then that a Pacific Rim anime is coming to Netflix to cancel it.

Trese. Set in a Manila where the mythical creatures of Philippine folklore live in hiding amongst humans, Alexandra Trese finds herself going head to head with a criminal underworld comprised of malevolent supernatural beings.
