The growth of anime has been spectacular in the past few years, and a lot of credit goes to Netflix.
The streaming company not only has aired great titles of the past and present but also has created several original works. Now, it has decided to experiment by mixing two contrasting genres – fairy tales and horror!
There have been numerous fairy tale adaptations in the world of anime like Sailor Moon, but none of them have attempted to add elements of horror on a large scale.
It will be interesting to see how something like this can work out. And considering Netflix’s recent announcement, it is apparent that such intermixing of genres is very near!
Netflix has announced that a new anime project based on the classic fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm is under production.
“Grimm” Project started. Title TBD.
Based on the Brothers Grimm’s fairy tales, a completely new anime that interweaves horror and suspense elements!Twitter Translation, English Translate
The all-female manga artist group CLAMP, who have created franchises like “Cardcaptor Sakura”, will look after the character design.
Netflix has also confirmed Michiko Yokote will be the scriptwriter of the upcoming anime.
Yokote is no stranger to the entertainment industry, having previously worked in “Bleach” and “Gintama”. Her involvement has excited the fans, and we can expect the production quality to be top-notch!
The fairy tales of Brothers Grimm have enjoyed massive popularity over the years. Timeless classics such as “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” and “Cinderella” are enjoyed by kids from all over the globe.
Adding horror and thriller elements to these tales may sound very odd, but we will have to see the final product before deciding!
Experiments like these are one of the reasons why Netflix has remained unique over the years.
Currently, the streaming giant is on a mission to expand its lineup and has announced a number of new anime in the past few days. But nothing is more enticing than this project!
We hope that Netflix reveals more information regarding the anime pretty soon, as fans can not wait to know more about this ambitious project!
