'Asia is home to the world's great creative centres producing some of the most compelling films and series of today, ' said Ted Sarandos, chief content officer for Netflix.

In addition to the five anime shows, Netflix is also developing a number of Asian titles, including Thai-, Indian- and Chinese-language originals.

Co-showrunners: Craig Kyle(Thor: Ragnarok) and Greg Johnson (X-Men: Evolution).

As for Altered Carbon, production on season two is thought to be underway with estimations of a late 2019 release date.

A series that will pop up on Netflix, as Deadline reports that the streaming platform is pushing forward with even more original anime productions. Koigi "Last Exile" Chigira directs, with animation duties being handled by Hellsing studio Gonzo.

Cagaster of an Insect Cage: Based on a manga of the same name, the series follows a young couple struggling to stay alive in a post-apocalyptic world where a mysterious disease "Cagaster" turns people into giant bloodthirsty insects.

Pacific Rim will expand upon Pacific Rim and Pacific Rim: Uprising, and focus on two siblings who pilot an abandoned Jaeger in an attempt to find their missing parents across a hostile, Kaiju-peppered landscape. And then Yasuke, a series that takes place in "a war-torn Japan of mechs and magic", starring Lakeith Stanfield (Sorry to Bother You) as a retired ronin tasked with taking care of a mysterious child. Loosely based on the legend of the African samurai who fought with Oda Nobunaga, Yasuke features The Boondocks' LeSean Thomas heading the project while Flying Lotus handles the soundtrack.

It's not the first time Netflix has delved into anime - the service is behind Devilman Crybaby, Sanrio series Aggretsuko, and the anime-inspired Castlevania and Neo Yokio.

Netflix will have plenty of content to offer from or in-the-style-of Japan, Taiwan, Thailand, and South Korea, and as a Filipino-American myself, it's cool to see a project called Trese in the mix, which centers on Filipino folklore and is based off a Filipino graphic novel.

Shifting ponds to Manila, Trese focuses on a tale of the Philippine underworld that is home to criminals and mythical beings who have infiltrated human society, as Alexandra Trese finds herself tangling with more malevolent creatures.
