Netflix has released a full trailer for its upcoming six-part anime series, Gamera: Rebirth, which will give Japan's other iconic Kaiju his share of the spotlight.
The teaser gives us an exciting glimpse of the fire-breathing turtle monster as he lays waste to the city while facing-off against five other giant beasts.
“When I came up with my own idea for Reiwa Gamera and made a proposal, KADOKAWA has already started a new project, and it’s content that makes me think that’s what happened, so I can expect this too," said director Mr. Shusuke Kaneko in a statement. "With that in mind, I would like to support the team from the position of a baseball commentator who has experience as a manager of the Gamera team until they win the championship and pitch again.”
Gamera has undergone a slight redesign for this series, and not everyone has been won over. Check out the trailer for yourselves below and let us know what you think in the comments.
"In the summer of 1989, Boko, Joe, and Junichi, all sixth-grade elementary school students, were having their last summer vacation. Each of them is worried about their future.

As they are about to carry out the plan, the town is threatened.
The kaiju Gyaos suddenly attacks Tokyo. The four are petrified in a town ruined by Gyaos. As Gyaos sets its sights on them, a huge kaiju appears. Its name is Gamera. This is the beginning of their "Summer of Kaiju." Kaiju appear one after another, and Gamera fights back despite his wounds. The boys witness the legend."
