    Teaser Trailer: (1min 37secs)

    The video features the titular Black warrior as he fights for the
    future of Japan while trying to prove himself against those who
    are underestimating him due to his background and ethnicity. It
    also provides us a preview of the fight and epic battle sequences
    as well as an idea into the prophecy involving Yasuke.

    The tale is set 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.

    The anime series was created, executive produced and directed by
    LeSean Thomas. It is a co-production between Netflix and MAPPA,
    the Japanese animation studio behind the final season of Attack
    on Titan. Director and animator Takeshi Koike also created the
    character designs of the series while Flying Lotus has signed on
    to handle the music.

    Back in 2019, MGM previously announced the development of a
    live-action film about Yasuke with Oscar nominee Chadwick Boseman
    attached for the leading role. However, due to the Black Panther
    star's passing at the age of 43 last year, the studio has decided
    to cancel the project.
