There is now little time for the debut of the anime Yasuke on the Netflix platform, scheduled for April 29, and following the latest trailer released, the MAPPA studio staff, in collaboration with producer LeSean Thomas, shared new images showing some of the most important moments, and it was announced the entire cast of voice actors.

Also to promote the upcoming publication of the anime on Netflix, the four images that you can find at the bottom have been shared, in addition to the key visual and the preparatory drawings for the characters of Yasuke, in the design that we will probably see in the first episode, without the iconic samurai armor, and Nobunaga Oda. We remind you that an absurd controversy regarding the color of Yasuke’s skin has emerged on social media, and we leave you to the splendid illustration published by MAPPA.
