Netflix has finally announced the date for the release of the long-awaited anime series, Cannon Busters, with the trailer already streaming on YouTube. This series, created by LeSean Thomas, has a substantial separate fan-base. And while the fans are happy about the confirmed release of Cannon Busters, there might be something more to look forward to (Yes, a Season 2 but we don’t know that yet).
All About Cannon Busters…
Cannon Busters is an anime show based on the American fantasy comic book series, also created by Thomas. This comic book series was launched in 2005. The story “follows the adventures of S.A.M, a high-end friendship droid who’s joined by a quirky, discarded maintenance robot and a brash, deadly fugitive. Together, the unlikely trio embarks on an unforgettable journey in a fantastic and dangerous world in search of S.A.M’s best friend, the heir to a kingdom under siege.”, according to the Deadline.
The Adventures of Cannon Busters
Succeeding the triumphant release of the comic series and due to his busy schedule, LeSean decided to continue the series as a Graphic Novel which hasn’t come into being yet. Presumably, he has called off this project. Thomas started a crowdfunding drive through Kickstarter for this animation adaptation in 2014. On raising over a $150,000 Dollars, the project eventually got a kickstart. Following this event, Netflix announced the release of Cannon Busters on August 2, 2017. After putting off the release for 2 years, the final dates were revealed with a trailer.
What Is The Release Date For Cannon Busters?
The release date for Cannon Busters was agreed upon by Netflix on August 15th, 2019. The Trailer of Cannon Busters was released in early August, this year.
Revealing The Cast Of Cannon Busters
Similar to the other anime series of Netflix, this show has a different voice cast for different languages. For the English version, Elizabeth Maxwell plays Casey Turnbuckle, Angelique Perrin plays S.A.M. and Kevin Grevioux voices Big Bull. These roles are taken by Yoshitsugu Matsuoka, Hinaki Yano and Shioro Izawa respectively, in the Japanese version.
The rest of the cast members will be revealed once the show is released.
Although, The big news is that Netflix has confirmed Thomas will be working in future anime projects with them. We can pretty much hope for a Season 2 after hearing this. However, even if this doesn’t happen, we can still look forward to some amazing anime series in the future.
