Anime Review – Netflix’s Cannon Busters

Erika Hardison reviews Netflix’s Cannon Busters

As a huge fan of The Boondocks, I was excited to hear LeSean Thomas heading his own project with Netflix. Starting off as a comic book that turned into a successful Kickstarter, the buzz around his project was kept under wraps for quite some time until news broke that Thomas was going to be releasing his anime exclusively on Netflix.

Cannon Busters is a story about the immortal Philly The Kid who lives his life quite recklessly. He is always drinking, fighting and hitting on women and he can’t seem to be stopped. He’s always being shot at or gunned down and that frustrates his enemies because he can’t die – or at least they haven’t figured out how to kill him yet. Philly meets a bright-eyed, friendly, almost human robot named Sam that needs his help to save her planet and the prince.

Netflix: Everything Coming and Going for August 2019

Netflix is losing another bunch of TV shows and movies during the month of August.

To counter the losses, there will be a big injection of new content, from Netflix originals to CW dramas to new movies.

With all of the changes, it's challenging to keep track of what's coming and going.

That's why we've rounded up all the information for you below.

Jane the Virgin and iZombie are about to wrap their runs on The CW, meaning that during the month of August, all five seasons of each series will be available to stream.

Glow will be back for its highly anticipated third season, while Dear White People will serve up another humorous season.

The highly anticipated martial arts drama, Wu Assassins, will also receive its premiere during the month of August.

The list of departures is not quite as severe as what left in July, with it mostly being filled with older movies.

Creator Of ‘Bee And PuppyCat’ Web Series To Co-Write Animated Show For Netflix

On August 2, Netflix announced a massive slate of original anime programs, all of which it plans to premiere for its subscribers over the coming years. The lineup includes a majority of shows led by notable Japanese animators, but the project that caught our eye here at Tubefilter comes from an American creator. Cannon Busters, from creator LeSean Thomas, will tell the story of an AI who seeks the aid of a wanted man, and its writing team includes Natasha Allegri, who is known as the woman behind the hit web series Bee & PuppyCat.

The protagonist of Cannon Busters is S.A.M., who a Netflix press release describes as a "high-end, royal-class friendship droid." With the help of a maintenance robot and a fugitive, S.A.M. will search for a long-lost friend. In 2014, Thomas raised more than $150,000 on Kickstarter to fund a pilot for his series, which he released for backers in 2016. Now,

Netflix Picks Up 12 New Anime Series Projects and Godzilla Movie; Watch Some Trailers!

Netflix is going all in on anime as they add the eagerly anticipated Godzilla movie and 12 other projects to their slate of upcoming programming. Deadline says in addition to the series the network is also overseeing the development of Cannon Busters, Devilman Crybaby, B: The Beginning, and Knights Of The Zodiac: Saint Seiya just to name a few.

The Godzilla and Saint Seiya grabs really show that Netflix is working to grab their Western audience who loves anime, but with competitors like Crunchyroll and Funimation (who was recently bought by Sony) in the mix, who knows if they'll be able to compete on that front. Time will tell, but the addition of so many projects seems promising for the future of anime on the platform.

Below you'll find details photos and some trailer for the anime projects that Netflix has picked up!

Cannon Busters: Check Out This Great Concept Art (And A Teaser!)

It is already a year ago that a Kickstarter campaign was started for funding a pilot for a Cannon Busters television series. That one brought in well over its limit of $120,000, and an ongoing funding campaign added to that as well. So, where are things now? Well, pretty damn far. As a recap, this is what we wrote last year: Writer-director LeSean Thomas is primarily known for his work on famed animated series The Boondocks (which he co-directed), as well as working on Legend of Korra and Black Dynamite: The Animated Series. Now, he wants to make an animated series based on his own graphic novel Cannon Busters, described as "What happened if The Wizard of Oz met The Hidden Fortress with influences...

An android with a secret past. A prince on the run. Magic & Mayhem. Those are the words used to summarize a new fantasy series titled "Cannon Busters," created by LeSean Thomas & Japanese studio, Satelight.  If Thomas' name sound familiar, the writer/director/creator has a resume that includes work on notable series like the Peabody Award-winning "The Boondocks" on Adult Swim, serving as co-director and supervising character designer; he also worked on Nickelodeon's "The Legend of Korra" as a storyboard/production artist; and most recently, "Black Dynamite: The Animated Series" as creative producer and supervising director, also...
