"Trese" is one of 17 new original productions from Asia that will be out on Netflix soon.

Content, content, content is what Netflix is all about, and the streaming behemoth is planning to offer a ton of original Asian shows and films. The show is set in a post-apocalyptic world where a mysterious disease, "Cagaster", turns people into giant murderous insects. Perhaps even more exciting than the announcement of the project itself is the all-star creator behind the new movie.

"Altered Carbon" is an anime feature, set in the same universe of the Netflix live-action sci-fi series. The anime film has Dai Sato (Cowboy Bebop) and Tsukasa Kondo attached as writers.

Cagaster of an Insect Cage is a manga-based series that follows the struggle of a young couple trying to stay alive. Koichi Chigira (Last Exile, Full Metal Panic!) is directing the Gonzo (Hellsing, Afro Samurai) animation studio production.

CC Sabathia, Yankees reportedly agree on one-year, $8 million contract
The New York Yankees announced today they have re-signed LHP CC Sabathia to a one-year contract for the 2019 season. Over a 19-year career, Sabathia has racked up almost 3,500 innings, with 2,986 strikeouts and a 3.70 ERA.

With Japan ravaged by a war that saw magic and mechs used on the battlefield, a wandering ronin finds himself wielding a sword once again as he fights to protect a child who is being hunted by sinister forces. It will star a teenage boy and his younger sister, who take control of an abandoned Jaeger as they travel across the country in search of their parents. But since he's also working with Netflix on his Pinocchio project, seems possible that he could get involved here too.

It's not the first time Netflix has delved into anime - the service is behind Devilman Crybaby, Sanrio series Aggretsuko, and the anime-inspired Castlevania and Neo Yokio. Budjette Tan and Kajo Baldisimo's graphic novel centers on Alexandra Trese, a supernatural investigator who solves crimes in the city of Manila where figures from Filipino mythology interact with the modern world.

"Trese", based on the graphic novel of the same name created by Budjette Tan and Kajo Baldissimo, is among the anime series Netflix is rolling out soon, Taito Okiura, director of global originals for anime, told reporters here.

Additionally, Shanty Harmayn and Tanya Yuson at Jakarta- and Singapore-based studio BASE Entertainment are producing an animated series based on the Filipino graphic novel Trese with Jay Oliva as the executive producer.
