Global streaming platform Netflix announced an original anime film titled Make My Day on Thursday during the fourth day of the Netflix Geeked event. The event also announced the main staff and a teaser visual (pictured).

The film's original story will be penned by manga author Yasuo Ohtagaki (Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt). Makoto Honda (Sakura Kakumei: Hanasaku Otome-tachi CG director) will be directing the series at 3DCG animation studio 5 Inc. 5 Inc. will also be providing the character designs.

Kiyotaka Oshiyama (FLCL Alternative) and Shouji Kawamori (Koukaku Kidoutai) are in charge of the mechanical design. Yumiko Yoshizawa (Noblesse animation producer) is writing the screenplay.

Netflix announced last February that they were partnering with six Japanese creators to develop new anime originals, including Ohtagaki.

Bit of a mediocre premise but some alright staff and promo art.

Definitely a "wait and see" title.

this will either be great or garbage. I sure hope it will be great classic sci-fi/horror/action but its netflix original so its likely meh. Story has potential but the director has no experience so maybe we get lucky.

looks decent, almost like terra for mars, I also thought of this when I saw the title
