Global streaming platform Netflix announced during the fourth day of Netflix Geeked on Thursday that the platform's 2017 film Bright will receive an anime spin-off movie subtitled Samurai Soul. The main staff and a teaser visual (pictured) were also revealed.

Synopsis
Izo, a Ronin, and Raiden, an orc, work to bring a young elf girl and the wand she carries to the land of the elves in the north. (Source: Netflix)

Kyouhei Ishiguro (Kujira no Kora wa Sajou ni Utau, Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso) will direct the movie at 3DCG production studio Arect. Michiko Yokote (Cowboy Bebop script, Bleach script) is writing the screenplay and Atsushi Yamagata (Druaga no Tou: The Sword of Uruk) is designing the characters.

I’m guessing this is a prequel?

So they've moved from funding new properties that later turn out to be shit, to funding old ones that are already known to be shit?

Who signed off on this? Who gave it such a bad title? Why is the plot seemingly just retreading most of the original? Why in god's name are the characters a "ronin" and "orc," as if those are both races or something?

I don't think any anime has made such a godawful first impression in a long time. Fuck this movie.

the movie was straight up garbage and of course this is at a 3dcg place, i really wish netflix would think about quality (think netflix think!) and not just quantity when it comes to them investing in anime, they occasionally bring good stuff to the table, but you really gotta sift through so much trash and not even the good kind of trash, ugly ass less than the bare minimum effort, 3dcg kind of trash.

This already seems terrible, and not just because it's Netflix or 3D. That poster makes it look like it will be on Gibiate levels of bad.

This is going to be complete shit. I'm starting to wish that Netflix would just stay out of producing anime.

It's gotta be better than the film, anyway.
