Netflix Announces Upcoming Sci-Fi Anime for 2024 ‘Moonrise’

Netflix has been supporting some famous anime series for quite a while now, and ‘Moonrise’ seems to be another addition to its expanding library.

This original sci-fi anime will take you on an adventure to the Moon. While many theories have risen up on the unexplored parts of the Moon, this anime will attempt to put a fantasy spin on them.

Wit Studio adopts author Tow Unukata’s original story to create the upcoming ‘Moonrise’ project. It is set for a 2024 release and will be streamed by Netflix.

If you are a fan of futuristic guns and guys fighting atop a spacecraft (don’t ask me how that’s possible), you need to check out the latest trailer for Moonrise:

The studio claims that they are experimenting with a new kind of animation that has never been used before. The surface of the moon and its unexplored regions will be made with this new animation form.

Jack and Al, the story’s protagonists, will set off on a remarkable space adventure, despite the absence of any remarkable features in the plotline. Of course, you will get tons of action scenes, guns that light up, and the characters playing with mind-boggling concepts like space and time.

You can check out both Al and Jack in the new visual:

Wit Studio has employed its best-ranking staff members for this series, and they have been lined up right here:

Character DesignHiromu ArakawaFullmetal Alchemist
Music ComposerRyo KawasakiYu-Gi-Oh! Sevens

Wit Studio has stated that the anime will take place both on the moon and on Earth and is set in the near future. I admit that the undiscovered Moon thing seems exciting, but we are yet to know whether the characters actually have any unique charisma.
