Aug 01, 2019 General Comments Off on Netflix collaborates with Taiwanese on new original anime
Taipei, American video on demand and production company Netflix revealed Thursday at the opening of the 2019 Comic Exhibition in Taipei that the company is working with firms from Taiwan to produce an original futuristic robotic anime series titled Eden.
The series, which is expected to be released in 2020 in approximately 190 countries, will be a collaboration between Netflix, Japanese animator Yasuhiro Irie and representatives from Taiwan's computergenerated imagery production service provider CGCG Inc. and 3D computer graphics provider Studio 5.
Taiki Sakurai, Netflix chief producer of anime, showed images from the anime at the announcement.
Eden is about a redhaired human girl raised by two robots in a future world dominated by AI, Irie said.
Meanwhile, according to an April 14 report by entertainment, sports and lifestyle website The Mix Net, Eden is set thousands of years in the future in a city named Eden 3, inhabited solely by robots, and while on a routine assignment two farming robots find a human baby girl they secretly raise.
The robots learn that humans aren't actually a myth, which they had previously been led to believe.
Peng Hsihao ), CGCG Inc. director, said he is excited to work with Irie, who directed the anime television series Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood that ran from April 2009 to July 2010.
Japanese are quite professional when it comes to technicality, and although they may have very high expectations, I am very happy to learn a lot from the whole experience, Peng said.
Peng and Irie also shared with the audience their collaboration experiences and other technical aspects of the project.
Netflix attended the annual Taipei comic exhibition for the first time this year. The 2019 Comic Exhibition saw more than 135,000 comic and anime fans attend the fair on its opening day.
The exhibition, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, runs until Aug. 5.
