Riding high on the success of the anime films Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters, Godzilla: City on the Edge of Battle and Godzilla: The Planet Eater, the iconic monster is set to roar onto Netflix in the upcoming anime series Godzilla Singular Point.

The new anime, which will feature all-new characters and a new story, will be directed by Atsushi Takahashi (Doraemon the Movie 2017: Great Adventure in the Antarctic Kachi Kochi), in collaboration with the anime studios bones (My Hero Academia) and Orange (Beastars).

The series will also combine hand-drawn and CG animation styles, and boasts animator Eiji Yamamori, who worked on Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away, and The Wind Rises, as the designer for the series’ kaiju. Kan Sawada will serve as composer, with Toh Enjoe as editor and writer, and Kazue Kato as character designer.

Godzilla Singular Point will hit Netflix in 2021. In the meanwhile, here’s a first look at the characters, including a young man who looks like the grown-up version of Killua from Hunter x Hunter:
