The series is meant to expand the story of the pre-existing Pacific Rim movies. So it’s a cyberpunk movie that revolves around giant robots, which have been built by humans to fight monsters. It looks similar to the world of Pacific Rim, but this anime goes back. It shows the desperate defense attempts of humans and follows siblings Hayley and Taylor’s fight for survival. They learn to pilot an abandoned Jaeger in a post-apocalyptic Australia overwhelmed by the Kaiju.
The original Pacific Rim film has also received positive reviews earlier from critics. It has also received awards such as the Annie Award, British Academy Film Awards, and the Critics Choice Movie Award as well. So what do you think about the future arrival of Pacific Rim: The Black season 2 and its season 1 as well? And stay tuned for more details of the upcoming season as we share them with you as soon as we get them.
