Remember Netflix CEO Reed Hastings saying he was “hopeful” that the streaming service would have a hand in making its own “great anime show”? Those plans are now well and truly on the move, with the simultaneous worldwide debut of the Production I.G partnership project Perfect Bones set up for 190 countries. The company said of the series from Psycho-Pass and Ghost in the Shell’s studio, and directed by Kazuto Nakazawa of Parasite Dolls and Kill Bill Vol. 1’s blast of ultra-violent animation, that it is “the first ever original anime title to debut all episodes simultaneously in 190 countries around the world.”
Perfect Bones will run for twelve episodes, and Netflix published a press release including a synopsis of their original series’ story:
[Perfect Bones] is set in the future where scientists have tried to breed the “perfect human” in hopes of keeping peace in the universe. After nearly achieving their goal through three children, the scientists send their “new humans” for further training where they are kidnapped by an evil organization set on using their powers to implement their own concept of a new world order.
