OUT OF THE BLUE, a trailer for a SPRIGGAN series came across my Feeds and all I could think was, “WTF?!! What?!!!”… I know, I can be very eloquent when I’m caught off-guard. But it’s true, looks like a SPRIGGAN anime series is coming to Netflix. Check out the trailer below!
An ancient alien civilization’s relics on Earth hold dangerous powers. The ARCAM corporation’s Spriggan agents must do everything they can to keep them out of the wrong hands.
Gen X otaku might remember the anime movie from Studio 4C back in 1998, which was AWESOME by the way, especially with it being overseen by Katsuhiro Otomo (AKIRA). But with this new anime, it’s unclear if it’s a new story, or one that’s reimagining the movie as a series. Though given the trailer description, sounds like it might be the latter. Even then, it’s unclear if Studio 4C or Otomo will be involved… though I can’t imagine they would be, as much as I’d like them to be. Move on to new stories and not revisit and all that… but I’m just still caught off-guard there’s a new SPRIGGAN!
The original movie was one of my favorite anime of the time, so it’ll be interesting to see how this new anime shapes up.
