Netflix To Premiere Yasuke Anime On April 29th Worlwide

6 episode series headed up by LeSean Thomas of Cannon Busters fame


After being announced 3 years ago and being developed in relative silence and secrecy since then, Netflix has officially announced a premiere date for one of its most highly anticipated series in Yasuke, the legendary tale of the first African samurai. The series will now premiere on April 29th worldwide, with actor Lakeith Stanfield set to take on the role of the titular protagonist.




Along with the confirmation of Thomas as executive producer/director at MAPPA along with Takeshi Koike and Stanfield as the protagonist, hip hop producer Flying Lotus will compose the score for the series.



In a war-torn feudal Japan filled with mechs and magic, the greatest ronin never known, Yasuke, struggles to maintain a peaceful existence after a past life of violence. But when a local village becomes the center of social upheaval between warring daimyo, Yasuke must take up his sword and transport a mysterious child who is the target of dark forces and bloodthirsty warlords.
