Netflix has released the first five minutes of its forthcoming anime, Trese.
The series is an adaptation of the hit Filipino action-horror comic series of the same name, created by Budjette Tan and Kajo Baldisimo. Set in Manila, the preview begins with a scene of the public rail transit system breaking down mid-journey, forcing everyone to step off and walk to the nearest station. Some passengers turn their attention to a lone person on the other side and are met with monsters crawling towards them. Meanwhile, Alexandra Trese, the main character, is investigating a supernatural crime involving the death of the White Lady of Balete Drive — a popular local urban legend that dates back to the ’50s.
The English voice cast will feature many voice actors of Filipino descent, including but not limited to Shay Mitchell, Darren Criss, Manny Jacinto, Dante Basco, Lou Diamond Phillips, Jon Jon Briones and Nicole Scherzinger. Meanwhile, the Filipino language cast will hear Liza Soberano, Niica Rojo, Steffi Graf Bontogon-Mola, RJ Celdran, Simon dela Cruz, Apollo Abraham and more.
Watch the first five minutes of the series below. Trese premieres June 11 on Netflix.
