-- Highlights include an anime adaptation of Mark Millar's Super Crooks, a new feature project by critically acclaimed Studio Colorido and sneak peek at an all new ULTRAMAN, Aggretsuko and Bright: Samurai Soul --

TOKYO, JAPAN - September 25, 2021 - Opening the first ever TUDUM global fan event, Netflix today celebrated their ever growing slate of anime, showcasing and celebrating both upcoming projects as well as stories fans already know and love. Anime continues to grow its fanbase on Netflix, with over 120 million households choosing to watch at least one anime on Netflix in the past year. Netflix is excited to continue bolstering their best-in-class lineup of anime from Japan and around the world.

During the virtual fan event presented and hosted by Netflix Anime V-Tuber N-ko, Netflix announced Drifting Home (premiering 2022), the next feature film project by critically acclaimed Studio Colorido, which delighted fans with their 2020 smash-hit A Whisker Away. The upcoming original story about two childhood friends that drift into a mysterious sea alongside an entire housing complex, will join previously announced projects like the super-powered heist story Super Crooks (premiering November 25, 2021) based on a story by comic book legend Mark Millar or Bright: Samurai Soul (premiering October 12, 2021), an ambitious anime spin-off to the original Hollywood blockbuster starring Will Smith.

Netflix also gave fans a glimpse at some of their returning series, including Aggretsuko Season 4 (premiering December, 2021) and ULTRAMAN Season 2 (premiering in 2022), revealing a new teaser art for the long awaited sophomore season of ULTRAMAN as well as the key art and premiere timing for the return of Aggretesuko.

The spotlight event also celebrated longtime fan favorite Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Eternal The Movie. Fans joined host and actress Maitreyi Ramakrishnan (Never Have I Ever) as she talked to the global voice cast about their experience as the voices of Super Sailor Moon / Usagi Tsukino and to celebrate the latest installment in the hugely successful, and timeless franchise.

In the time between the fall of the Shogunate and the rise of the Meiji era, a powerful bright light emitted from a wand brings an end to the long Shogunate period to avoid further bloodshed as Japan begins to shift toward a new era. Amid these circumstances, a one-eyed wandering ronin named Izou, who has lost his reason to live, and Raiden, an orc who detests murder and hopes to leave a life of thievery behind, separately meet a young elf girl named Sonya around the same time. Together, they go on a journey along the Tokaido road to bring her and the wand she holds safely to the land of the elves in the north. Standing in their path is the mysterious organization Inferni, which aims to obtain the wand and revive the Dark Lord, who intends to rule all of creation. Inferni also uses the new Meiji government in its attempt to steal the wand from Izou, Raiden and Sonya. Traveling along the Tokaido road from Kyoto to Yokohama, Izou and Raiden begin their journey to protect the wand.
