Since we are not processing Blade Runner As the first cyberpunk saga comes, Adult Swim has called some of the biggest names in Japanese animation to lead its animated series of adaptation of the world imagined by Philip K. Dick and brought to the big screen by Ridley Scott and Denis Villeneuve.
Blade Runner: Black Lotus
So that's the talented Shinichiro Watanabe, which we owe the excellent Cowboy Bebop, Samurai Champloo and Space Dandy, which restores the cover to the executive and creative producer for Blade Runner: Black Lotus (This is his small name) Especially as Shinichiro Watanabe is not on his first attempt on the license Blade Runner. He has really understood Blade Runner Blackout 2022, an animated short film that serves as a prequel to Blade Runner 2049.
But the good news does not stop there since realization falls to Kenji Kamiyama and Shinji Aramaki. The first is especially known for having made the series Ghost in Shell: Stand Alone Complex. The other, he is nobody other than the man behind cyberpunk anime Appleseed (released in 2005, we highly recommend it).
The plot of Blade Runner: Black Lotus will take place in 2032 and involve characters already seen earlier. The series whose international broadcast will be delivered by the Crunchyroll platform will contain 13 episodes of 30 minutes. No release date has been communicated yet. Confidence: We can not wait to see it.
