Reboot series is set to debut on Netflix in June
After weeks of drip-feeding additional cast members, David Production has packed them all together in a new key visual for their upcoming Spriggan anime series, illustrated by character designer and chief animation director Shuhei Handa (Little Witch Academia).
Based on the 1989 manga by Hiroshi Takashige and Ryoji Minagawa, Spriggan is directed by Hiroshi Kobayashi (Kiznaiver) at studio David Production, starring Chiaki Kobayashi (Yuichi in Tomodachi Game) as protagonist Yu Ominae.
Netflix, who will be exclusively streaming the anime from June 18, describes the series as:
A great civilization once existed on this Earth. Possessing knowledge and scientific prowess far exceeding that of modern man, the relics of this ancient civilization remain hidden across this world even now.
As high-speed communication networks cover the globe and the peering eyes of satellites are able to expose all secrets, the armies of great nations clash as they seek to uncover and research these artifacts, which possess an unfathomable “power.”
A member of this ancient civilization carved a message into a plate: “Protect our relics from evil-doers.” Taking this message to heart, one organization aims to seal away this ancient civilization for good.
The elite secret agents of this organization are known as…Spriggans.
