The fusion of Takahashi’s drawings and Studios’ CG animations has already made this venture one of the most anticipated anime projects of the year 2021.
Netflix also mentioned that creative team of Kan Sawada, who has composed numerous Doraemon Movies and successful Japanese Sci-Fi novelist Toh Enjoe will be working n the story and inputs of Godzilla Singular Point anime.
