Little is currently known about Make My Day, and there is no official release date. However, some of the anime's staff has already been announced. Makoto Honda, whose only previous credit is as a 3D director on the ONA adaptation of the Sakura Wars video game franchise, has been confirmed as the film's director. Honda will be joined by 5 Inc., which will animate and create the film's original character designs.
Make My Day will join Netflix's rapidly expanding catalog of original anime catering to the platform's growing anime fanbase. During Geeked Week, Netflix announced an anime adaptation of its original film Bright and released an extended look for its upcoming supernatural crime anime Trese. The streaming service also recently acquired Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Eternal The Movie parts 1 and 2.
Make My Day is set on a frozen planet where mysterious creatures have suddenly emerged from the depths and are attacking the planet's population. The film will depict humanity's attempts to survive this terror that lurks "beyond the horizon."
