Japan Sinks 2020, Weathering With You, Attack On Titan and More


Netflix has released the first trailer for Masaaki Yuasa's anime adaptation of the best-selling novel by Sakyo Komatsu. A sci-fi tinged disaster series Japan Sinks 2020 looks like it will be the most mainstream thing Yuasa has directed in quite some time. With that said, while missing the quirky animation of other Yuasa works, it looks like it will be a dramatic watch with some impressive animation. Japan Sinks 2020 will hit Netflix on July 9, and will run for 10 episodes.
