The news of the anime series’ debut comes a little over a month after the first subtitled trailer dropped for it but also in a month in which anime fans won’t have many new titles to look forward to on Netflix. While King of the Monsters couldn’t reach the same heights as fans were hoping with the inclusion of various Titans, Singular Point could very well fix that by balancing the action out with a gripping human story at the heart of it. Plus, by keeping things closer to the modern-day, the diverse character roster could be far easier for viewers to connect to than that of the anime film trilogy.
Whether one was a fan of Polygon’s trilogy or not, there’s no denying that the anime format is prime territory for the King of the Monsters to reign. Godzilla: Singular Point undoubtedly points towards a genre adaptation fans deserve, thanks to the intriguing character and creature designs and the awe-inspiring trailers.
