Seis Manos Review: Mexican mythology, Kung-Fu and family

Anime meets Mexican mythology with the new Mexime Netflix original series Seis Manos

SEIS MANOS offers the very best in storytelling and action, with an incredible voice cast and a unique Latin American storyline rarely seen in animation. We’re thrilled to partner with Netflix and Powerhouse to share this incredible new series with fans.

Brad Woods, Chief Marketing Officer, VIZ Media

Seis Manos (Six Hands) is the story of Silencio, Isabella (Aislinn Derbez) and Jesus (Jonny Cruz) three orphans living in the fairy tale village of San Simon who were adopted by Chiu the Daoist Martial Arts Master (Vic Chiu). Chiu taught them all he knows (or did he?) but life intrudes when an orphan child Domino (Carlos Luna) hides at the homestead from the police after stealing a mango. It’s a domino effect when Silencio, Isabella and Jesus are dealing with childhood trauma and hiding from the world but all that is shattered when their father is brutally murdered by a strange intruder. They are joined by Garcia, Mexican Federale (Angelica Vale) and Brister, the DEA Agent (Mike Colter) to fight a lawless drug cartel led by El Balde (Danny Trejo) that has ties to Silencio and the supernatural in the eight episode series. 

My take: I liked the ode to 70’s Kung Fu action movies with a new cultural spin to it and the mythology appeals to my inner and out blerd. It’s not ‘my Saturday’ morning cartoons I grew up with no this is more adult with themes of family, drugs, revenge, mommy issues and monstrous creatures that are hard as hell to kill. It reminds me of Grindhouse and the animation makes it stand out from most anime. Some may not like the look but I believe it enriches the ‘out of time’ story and enriches the story visually. The Kung Fu looks great, loved the representation in voice casting, diversity of characters & body types, the new mythology of Mexican witches and the writing. 

This is VIZ Media’s first original animated series and was developed/produced with Powerhouse Animation Studios (Federator Studios Castlevania). The new original Netflix series from VIZ Media LLC was co-created by Powerhouse Animation Studios CEO Brad Graeber (Supervising Producer, Frederator Studios CASTLEVANIA) and writer Alvaro Rodriguez (MacheteFrom Dusk Till Dawn: The Series). Noted screenwriter Daniel Dominguez (Oishi High School BattleCaptain Underpants) is an additional writer on the series, which is directed by Willis Bulliner (Agents of Mayhem). The series is streaming now in English and Spanish audio and multiple subtitle language.

Wonder Woman takes on Silver Swan in the newest DCU Movie

“Wonder Woman: Bloodlines” takes on Silver Swan (Marie Avgeropoulos)

“Wonder Woman: Bloodlines” is the newest film in the popular series of DC Universe Movies produced by Warner Bros. Animation and DC. The film has the added bonus of the DC Showcase animated short Death, inspired by Neil Gaiman’s “The Sandman”

NYCC had the world premier of Wonder Woman: Bloodlines with Rosario Dawson (Wonder Woman), Marie Avgeropoulos (Silver Swan), Adrienne C. Moore (Etta Candy), Mozhan Marno (Dr. Cyber) and Courtenay Taylor (Dr. Poison) at the World Premiere of “Wonder Woman: Bloodlines” on Friday, October 4 at New York Comic Con. Attendees were able to attend a panel discussion with cast and filmmakers James Tucker (executive producer), Sam Liu (producer/co-director), Justin Copeland (co-director) and Mairghread Scott (screenwriter).

Fans can stream “Wonder Woman: Bloodlines” starting Saturday, October 5 and on 4k, Blu-ray and DVD starting October 22.

I’m a huge fan of Marie Avgeropoulos who plays Octavia Blake in The CW’s “The 100” and brings a richness to the dark character enriching the pain, choices and trying to survive. I’m very excited to see her in new roles as a VO actor, action, drama and (hopefully) comedy! She’s filming the final season of the 100 and juggling a couple of additional projects. She will co-star with Nicholas Cage in the upcoming “Jiu Jitsu” and Cary Elwes, Susan Sarandon, Diane Kruger, Brad Dourif & Nick Offerman in “Butterfly in the Typewriter.”

COACH X MICHAEL B. JORDAN NARUTO FASHION

VIZ Media collaboration between Coach and renowned fashion designer, Michael B. Jordan at NYCC PopUp with exclusive limited edition T-shirts

Coach will also celebrate the collection with global pop-ups in Japan, Malaysia and the United States, a dedicated Coach experience in the VIZ Media booth at New York Comic Con on October 3-6, and a range of limited-edition T-shirts. 

With my name on this collection, it was important to design pieces that represent my cultural influences and my community; pieces that I could see my friends, family and fans wearing with pride. As with all aspects of my work, this collection is about bringing fresh perspectives and unique voices to the forefront. Expanding into the fashion design space was rewarding beyond my expectations. I’m grateful to Stuart and Coach for providing me with the opportunity and expertise to execute a collection I’m extremely proud of.

Michael B. Jordan

Coach has gone geek! Michael B. Jordan the first global face of Coach menswear has launched Coach x Michael B. Jordan. The unisex collection has been inspired by his love of Naruto, community and culture. Stuart Vevers, Coach Creative Director worked with Michael B. Jordan on the collection of footwear, bag and outwear for the ninja in all of us.

Film Directed by Black Panther Alum Rachel Morrison

The hero film, conceived by Jordan and directed by Rachel Morrison, who collaborated with Jordan previously as the director of photography on Black Panther, takes place in a neon-drenched Tokyo street, and moves between moments of modern-day grit and magical realism, placing an emphasis on the power of connection. 

Working with Mike is always a great experience. He’s a great collaborator because he always puts his heart and soul into everything he does, and because he brought something authentic and personal to the collection.

Stuart Vevers, Coach Creative Director

The partnership with VIZ Media has launched the Michael B. Jordan X Coach collection online, stores, and pop-ups in select location including NYCC that has exclusive T-shirts.

The well thought out design includes the importance of eyes in the series a Coach Retro C graphic. The clothing items are ninja functional with removable sleeves, tactical straps and elastic closures in case you need to defend the village.

The story of Naruto appeals to Jordan and Coach because of his being an outsider that has walked his own path and never gave up on the dream of being the hokage!
