Although cast info is yet to come, it’s been revealed that the original director of the acclaimed anime, Watanabe Shinichiro, will serve as a consultant for the 10 episode series, which will stream worldwide via Netflix.
Based on the original anime animated by Sunrise, the series will follow a gang of space bounty hunters as they fly through the galaxy chasing criminals and saving the world after extricating themselves from various dangerous situations.
