With Gamera -Rebirth-, Netflix is well-embarked to set itself a place to compete with top-level studios and production companies in a niche where they feel they were lacking: Anime. Now, I am not sayin’ that the Netflix catalog of Anime is poor, is just that they have a very uphill battle with other niche-centered titans like Funimation or Crunchyroll. But in any case, Gamera is a strategic move to put Netflix on the radar of the Anime-consuming public, who will have the comfort of having all the entertainment alternatives in one place.
If you’ve ever seen Godzilla’s anime you’ll probably like Gamera -Rebirth- because it has similar vibes. With this new series, ENGI and Netflix partnered up for global distribution, giving the series a gigantic platform to serve as a stepping stone to set up a new fan base.
Is Gamera -Rebirth- For Kids Or Adults?
Let’s break down Gamera -Rebirth-, because it has a lot of Godzilla vibes, but not quite so. Kiajus are the strange beasts from the Anteverse that threaten the people.
I’m no hardcore expert at Japanese animation, and from the looks of it, I can share with you readers that this production feels like a Shonen anime — appealing to teenage boys aged twelve to eighteen — but also has the content for having it cataloged as a Seinen anime of the sorts — a genre that caters to young men aged eighteen to forty.
Still Gamera -Rebirth- is a bit of a Kodomo-Muke sort of thing because it includes due to its inclusion of violence. In Japan, violent content is not intended for young audiences.
Gamera -Rebirth- Preview
Gamera is a Kaiju, a gigantic horrid monstrous creature with the knack for destroying cities but it also has the distinction from its breed that not all of those beasts behaves in the same way, this big-ass monster is going to battle other monsters to save those vulnerable in the cities.
Due to its sheer size, it’s likely that Gamera will end up breaking a few buildings and skulls if we judge from previous iterations of the franchise. With amazing CGI effects the series combines traditional drawings and amazing effects to make a stunning impact that will hook its viewers.
Gamera is old school, from 1965, a rival of the Godzilla genre with those special effects from that era that evoke nostalgia. Unlike Godzilla, Gamera has other behaviors in its character development storyline which this new series will explore
