Here lately, I’ve run out of anime that looks interesting to me at the outset, so I started checking out anime news sources to see what’s going on in the anime world I’d be missing.

First of all, if you’re an anime fan and don’t know what’s up with Anime News Network (ANN), check it out.

I happened to have the pleasure of checking out an interview from ANN with LeSean Thomas, the executive producer of a new anime hitting Netflix on Thursday called Yasuke.

You can watch the interview here.

Yasuke is the story of a black samurai who is an actual historical figure. He was a retainer for the daimyo Oda Nobunaga.

Yasuke arrived in Japan in 1579 in the service of an Italian Jesuit missionary.

The animation from the trailer and the music is beautiful and artfully done. (Watch it here.)

Again, season 1 is coming to Netflix on Thursday, and I, for one, will be watching it when it releases.
