Expect the story’s execution to be top-notch.
Seis Manos is co-created by Powerhouse’s CEO Brad Graeber, along with Alvaro Rodriguez, who wrote Machete alongside Robert Rodriguez, and Dan Dominguez, writer on Captain Underpants and Spongebob Squarepants, among other titles.
I’m crossing my fingers, hoping that Seis Manos has a lil’ bit of that Machete vibe to it. Wouldn’t mind if Mr. Badass himself, Danny Trejo, lent his signature voice to the cast, either!
Brad Woods, CMO of VIZ Media, had this to say about the project:
With over 30 years of experience bringing the best manga and anime to North America, Seis Manos will be VIZ Media’s first original animated property.
We’re thrilled to bring Seis Manos to life with our partners at Netflix and Powerhouse Animation. This show combines the absolute best in action and storytelling.
Stay tuned for release dates, additional artwork, and trailers.
