SEIS MANOS DEBUTS WORLDWIDE ON NETFLIX OCTOBER 3rd
Looking for an action-horror show to binge this Halloween season – something in the vein of Castlevania, perhaps? Then Viz Media and Powerhouse Animation have you covered, because they’re releasing all eight episodes of their new original anime SEIS MANOS on Netflix on Thursday, October 3rd – two days ahead of its New York Comic Con premiere on Saturday, October 5th at 1pm.
What is SEIS MANOS about? Well, to quote Viz editor Urian Brown’s description from this year’s Anime Expo; “SEIS MANOS has a dose of From Dusk Til Dawn, a scoop of the 70s Kung Fu tv show, a bit of Shaft, is sprinkled all over with delicious John Carpenter flakes and baked in the hot Mexican sun.” Instant sell! But if that description isn’t enough to excite you, check out the clip below and the following press release to learn all about SEIS MANOS!
