Pacific Rim: The Black has a new, recently released trailer and it promises to be an action-packed anime set in an Australia that has been overrun by kaiju. The show’s main characters are two siblings who revive an old, broken down jaeger in order to take back the land down under from the alien monsters.

Co-created by Craig Kyle (Thor: Ragnarok) and Greg Johnson (X-Men: Evolution), Pacific Rim: The Black is the first of several anime titles Netflix is producing in tandem with Legendary Television. Anyone who was a fan of the Pacific Rim films—maybe more of the first than the second, no offense John Boyega—has something to look forward to in this upcoming anime.

The show will stream on Netflix beginning on March 4. Checkout the trailer below.
