Netflix was the first major panel of Anime Japan 2021 with the streaming platform revealing a slew of brand new information for its exclusively streaming anime works. With new key visuals for Yasuke to a brand new trailer for Record of Ragnarok, the platform revealed a lot. Here’s a round-up of all the info from the Netflix panel.





First off was a new key visual for the upcoming anime series inspired by the real-life story of a Black retainer working under Oda Nobunaga, Yasuke. The 6-episode series is set to slice its way onto the platform on May 29.





Next up is a brand new trailer the sweet-looking sci-fi anime series Eden, looking more at the characters in the limited series, which also announced its release date of May 27.





The upcoming battle between the gods and humans in Record of Ragnarok was announced to stream exclusively on Netflix this June with a brand new trailer and updated Netflix-branded key visual.


Obviously, this is only a small slither of what's to come from Netflix late last year, but after their special presentation earlier in the year, there couldn't have been much more to show off.
