Post nuclear disaster anime debuts October 2nd

Viz Media has announced plans to stream the anime adaptation of Tomonori Inoue's post nuclear crisis anime Coppelion on and Hulu starting October 2nd. New episodes will be added on subsequent Wednesdays.



Announced in 2010 and shelved in the wake of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster, the anime adaptation of Tomonori Inoue's Coppelion is now slated to launch this fall with GoHands' go to director Shingo Suzuki (K, Mardock Scramble) helming the production and Makoto Nakamura (the studio's Princess Love!) writing.
