"Netflix Geeked" released the most awaited "Gundam" trailer on their Twitter account, and fans are split in half.
"Netflix Geeked" is the streaming platform's virtual fan-facing event wherein avid-anime watchers can get updates and first-reveals of upcoming series and in-the-work movie projects.
The most recent announcement includes the trailer for "Mobile Suit Gundam Hathaway," which they captioned with "The next entry in the Gundam series is coming." The film will be the last installment to the Gundam franchise, according to Game Spot.
However, fans are on the fence about the Gundam Series as they expressed their opinions under Netflix Geeked's tweet. One Twitter user shared their frustration by commenting, "Oh god, please do not throw this in Netflix Jail like the rest of the anime you put out. Simulcast, for gods sake!"
