Hiroyuki Seshita returns to the kaiju genre as the lead director of Gamera's revival in the upcoming anime series Gamera -Rebirth-. Seshita, a long time Godzilla fan, was one of the co-directors on Polygon's Anime Godzilla Trilogy. His partner was Kobun Shizuno.
Seshita brings with him a host of writing talent which includes Hiroshi Seko, best known for writing the bulk of the Attack on Titan anime, Tetsua Yamada (Godzilla: City on the Edge of Battle) and Kenta Ihara (Ajin). Kan Takahama will design the monsters, having previously worked on the acclaimed Shinya Tsukamoto's Tetsuo II. The voice cast includes Hisako Kanemoto (Atra from Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans), Yoshitsugu Matsuoka (Hashibira from Demon Slayer), Aki Toyosaki (Young Teoni from Demon Slayer) and Subaru Kimura (Takeshi Goda from Doraemon).

The six episode series will stream on Netflix sometime this year. An exact release date has yet to be confirmed.
