    I would give anything for this to be series.
    Director of Cowboy Bebop and Samurai Champloo?
    That was all that was needed for me to instantly love it already.

    If you watched and liked any of the Ghost in Shells, AniMatrix, Ergo Proxy, and maybe even Akira, then you should definitely have a look at this. (And its also a 15 min short, what do you have to lose?)
    I personally absolutely adore gritty flashy dark cyberpunk settings, this fits ...

    Do androids dream of electric sheep?
    Blade Runner Black Out 2022 accurately captures the visuals, sounds, atmosphere and subject matter of the original Blade Runner film. This anime short story tells what happened in the timeline shortly after the original film. A mass power outage that wipes out a database containing the records of who is a human and who is an android aka replicant. It sets up the setting for the upcoming new film ...

    Different, and unique creation of effect and arts
    Unique artwork, stylish Chr, nice plot, and good work with sounds and music effects. It gives me a modern vibe. And the same exp I very often feel when I see a series that has the signs leading it to revolutionary, or setting new standards. All in all I will give this 5/5, as it gives me the same promising feeling I had when I started watching Naruto, Attack of titans, and few other animes that ...

  • Quite honestly, with what we get in Blade Runner: Black Out 2022, I’d rather have this be a series than us getting Blade Runner 2049
    It’s So Good It Makes You Wish It Was a Pilot

    Let me begin by saying, I in no way understand the hype around the original Blade Runner. I felt bored out of my mind yet, it’s Harrison Ford. Who doesn’t like Harrison Ford? So when I started this OVA, I guess you can call it, I wondered if I could really get into it without Harrison Ford as a hook. Well, minus the Ford and add ...

  • Magnificent story, I want more
    Basically if like anything Blade Runner you will definitely like this. If your a fan of awesome animation, you will like this. If you like sci fi animation or sci fi in general you will like this. The only thing wrong this is that it leaves you wanting a whole lot more. Just watch it, you will not be disappointed

  • Beautiful animation, but rushed execution
    I can't fault people for loving this short, it checks all the right boxes and it's flawless in it's animation and presentation. The weakest segment I felt with this and the one that really bothers me is this feeling of trying to cram in multiple characters with different back stories into a short film while trying to tie it all back together with Blade Runner. If this was 30 minutes or even 45, ...

  • Wooo way to tease us
    Man was this short episode a spectacle. Definitely worth the watch. Glad to see some American good voice acting especially african american ones. It's a shame its a lone episode. The visuals are top notch and the atmosphere was sold in mintues by the main character of this short.

    I watched literally 2 minutes of this anime before I knew this is best thing to come out for this medium since cowboy bebop and similar style animes that are driven by an actual, thought out, meaningful story. The visuals are beautiful and feels like an old friend that has grown more mature, and harkens back to watanabe's space nior style of cowboy bebop, and, though as far as I remember it wasn't ...

  • Sweet and Short as it should be
    Just re-watched Blade Runner from 1982 before jumping into this short (which is all before the inevitable viewing of the new film coming out this weekend). Simply put as long as you have a generic recollection of the classic film it isn't necessary to re-watch it to understand what is occurring in this short. The only concern is it is just that, short. Regardless a fun quick watch.

  • Perfect way to revive this franchise
    I'm always skeptical of reboots and the like. it's always hit or miss. this one looks like a bullseye!

    The aesthetic is a perfect recapture of the original, and even elements of the soundtrack bring back chills from the original score. With how closely inspired works like Ghost in the shell, cowboy bebop, and blade runner are, I am extremely happy they decided to do this project in tandem ...
