There was a time when Kaiju rose from the Pacific Rim only to encounter gigantic robots, Jaegers, built to fight them back. That time has passed. Now, Australia has been overrun by Kaiju, forcing the evacuation of an entire continent. Left behind, teenage siblings Taylor and Hayley embark on a desperate search for their missing parents, teaching themselves to pilot a battered, long-abandoned Jaeger to help in their quest and give them even the slightest hope of surviving.

Pacific Rim: The Black is a Japanese–American adult animated TV show on Netflix, based on the Pacific Rim franchise. My husband and I are big Pacific Rim fans because ROBOTS VS MONSTERS! Really what more do I need?

This show is definitely for adults. Some pretty dark and violent things happen even though the protags, Tyler and his sister Haley are young teenagers. There are also moments of humor like any action/drama and a great use of music during the visually pleasing action scenes.

The animation is good, with lots of action. The plot is pretty predictable but so were the movies. In the first couple of episodes, it seems like all Tyler and Haley do is yell each other's names in distress, but it does get interesting. The kaiju have "evolved" in an unexpected way.

Each episode is about 25 minutes so you can binge the whole thing quickly. I'm hoping for a second season. If you enjoyed the whole Pacific Rim universe, and love animation, then check this one out.

My husband doesn't really like animation and said he would never rate one higher than a 4, so he gives this 3 1/2.

I give Pacific Rim: The Black 4 "Of course!" Sheep
