(キャシャーン Sins, Kyashān Sins
?) is a remake of the classic anime series Neo-Human Casshern
, produced by Tatsunoko Productions and animated by Madhouse, which premiered in Japan on October 1, 2008.
The series has been remade, completely discarding the continuity presented in the original Neo-Human Casshern
anime series, in which Casshern was a cybernetic superhero battling the evil robotic forces of Braiking Boss in a post-apocalyptic Earth. Instead, in Casshern Sins
, Casshern is presented as a cyborg subordinate of Braiking Boss who was ordered to assassinate the savior of mankind, and has thus doomed the Earth to ruin.
A manga adaptation has also been announced, and is currently set to be serialized in Jive's Monthly Comic Rush Magazine.
