Days ahead of its premiere, Netflix has now released the official trailer for its highly-anticipated new anime series, Yasuke.

Created by LeSean Thomas and animated by renowned Japanese animation studio MAPPA, Yasuke centers around a real-life man of African origin who served under the Japanese daimyō Oda Nobunaga in the 1500s. The Black samurai voiced by LaKeith Stanfield finds himself caught up in the social upheaval between warring daimyō in a war-torn feudal Japan filled with mechs and magic. On his quest for peace, Yasuke is tasked with protecting a mysterious child targeted by dark forces and bloodthirsty warlords. Yasuke is also scored and executive produced by Flying Lotus for an added layer to all the action.

Watch the official trailer for Yasuke premiering on Netflix in English and Japanese worldwide April 29 above.
