It's been 53 years since Jiger first graced the screen in Gamera vs. Jiger (1970). Although he was seen again in Gamera: Super Monster (1980), that appearance was entirely stock footage from his debut battle. The poster for the upcoming Gamera -Rebirth- anime series, features his long awaited return.
Hiroyuki Seshita returns to the kaiju genre as the lead director of Gamera's revival in the upcoming anime series. Seshita, a long time Godzilla fan, was one of the co-directors on Polygon's Anime Godzilla Trilogy. With him comes a host of writers, including Hiroshi Seko (Attack on Titan), 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).
Here is a textless version of the poster:
The six episode series will stream on Netflix sometime this year. An exact release date has yet to be confirmed.
