Netflix began streaming a second Japanese-dubbed trailer and revealed a new key visual on the streaming platform for its Pacific Rim: The Black anime series. The trailer was released with the Japanese audio as well as English audio.
The release date for the anime was also announced. It’ll come out on March 4, 2021.
Pacific Rim: The Black will take place in the same world as its predecessor, however, in an alternate timeline. Pacific Rim is a 2013 American film based on monsters attacking the earth.
The film’s story takes place in the future when an interdimensional portal opens up on the bottom of the Pacific Ocean. Huge monsters called ‘Kaiju’ pour out of the portal and wreak havoc in the surrounding areas. Humans pilot gigantic mecha robots named Jaeger to combat the monsters.
The related anime series will premiere worldwide on Netflix on March 4 with seven episodes that run for a duration of about 30 minutes each. Netflix describes the series thus:
There was a time when Kaiju rose from the Pacific Rim only to encounter gigantic robots, Jaegers, built to fight them back. That time has passed. Now, Australia has been overrun by Kaiju, forcing the evacuation of an entire continent. Left behind, teenage siblings Taylor and Hayley embark on a desperate search for their missing parents, teaching themselves to pilot a battered, long-abandoned Jaeger to help in their quest and give them even the slightest hope of surviving.
