The series also showcases the talents of veteran voice actress Erica Lindbeck, whom video game fans can recognize from her roles in Mortal Kombat 11 and Insomniac Spidermanand Benjamin Diskin, who played Haida in his English translation Aggretsuko and played many roles Naruto Shippuden.
The official Netflix synopsis summarizes the series as follows:
At the end of the epic series Pacific Rim: The Black (S2), the journey is far from over. Our brave brothers Taylor and Hayley still hope to reach Sydney’s safety with the Atlas Destroyer, the reduced education that Jaeger left behind when Australia was evacuated. With teenage killer May and the mysterious human / kaju hybrid boy teaming up with Taylor and Hailey, this makeshift family must cross a dangerous area controlled by the bloodthirsty cult Kizu Sisters. These zealots, led by the enigmatic High Priest, are convinced that the boy is their long-awaited Messiah and will not stop at anything to catechize him in their dark circle – something that Hayley would sacrifice everything to prevent.
Pacific Rim: The Black made its debut in 2021 and created by Craig Kyle of Marvel Comics (Thor: Ragnarök) and Greg Johnson (X-Men: Evolution). The series is a spinoff of Guillero del Toro’s cult classic Pacific Rim films, focusing on humanity’s quest to stop an invasion of aliens, who try to rid the planet of its current inhabitants by sending huge monsters that destroy the city known as kaiju. In order to fight these beasts, humanity is building its own titans in the form of Jaegers, tall humanoid robots that require the brain power of two perfectly synchronized pilots to move and fight.
In case this series was not enough to satisfy the viewers’ appetites for giant monster fights, Netflix is also preparing the second season of its popular anime Ultraman. The series, which serves as a direct sequel to the classic 1966 live tokusatsu series, will premiere in the second season of six episodes on April 14.
