Spriggan



Manga 'Spriggan' is getting a new anime adaptation. Will be be distributed worldwide on Netflix. Studio is David Productions.

Plot Summary
Quote:
Many years ago, an ancient civilization ruled Earth. They had a very advanced technology, but were destroyed in the end due to the misuse of their creations. These people left messages for later generations in the form of indestructible message plates written in an ancient language.

Several armed organizations began to secretly search for these artifacts to use them for their own good and against their enemies. The ARCAM Corporation is trying to stop these forces from destroying themselves with these "advanced" machines. The main character of the story, Yu Ominae, is one of the elite agents that work for ARCAM under the name of Spriggans.

Fuck YESSSSS!!!!

I got the entire manga collection. I don't know if it'll be adopted to set in the Cold War or up to date with the War on Terror.

It sounds ok. Not much to take away from a short summary like that. But it could be cool.

I'm familiar with the name but never read the manga. Another old/finished manga getting an anime adaptation out of nowhere to add to the growing list.

I was wondering why the name sounded familiar to me despite never coming across this before, but then I realised I was thinking of that little rock bastard from Ancient Magus Bride.

Premise sounds interesting enough.

Oh! I remember reading this during my school days. Never finished it though and I mostly forgot about the story.

I've seen the movie too. It's a dumb fun bloody bombastic well-animated action movie (sounds perfect for David Production, no?). Here's some reviews (SPOILER ALERT!):

I used to joke that (the Fatman fight scenes at least) were basically "Metal Gear Solid The Anime".

This was basically the author's work just before Project Arms and combines Sci-Fi Ancient Technology with modern day paramilitary themes.

Oh, and just as a warning: America is one of the big bad guys here, just so some of you don't get put off (and explains why the manga only ever got partially translated into English)

Should I be happy/smiling or paranoid at this?

Nah, the canon sidearm is a P226.

Takashige-sensei's tweeted the news. He can finally say it now (according to his tweet).

Other Japanese articles mention that the director, staff and voice actors involved will be announced later.

Teenage me thought the 90's movie was "F-ing dope" back when I seen it many moons ago. I thought the world had hints of something really interesting and the movie did a decent job of setting the stage for something else to come after....which sadly never did, until now.

I also remember the movie had a sick ED.

Cautiously looking forward to this.

Takashige-sensei tweeted that Sunday Web Every (It's a manga ebook site) is offering the first two bunkobans sold on their site on the house. More than likely that it's to promote the upcoming anime.

Not sure if the promo started already.

I should be glad my custom Yu Ominae figure isn't complete. I gave him the wrong pistol...

The tweet Takashige-sensei has on his account consists of a conversation with someone (one person I think) who raised the issue on animating the Egypt arc where Kutheimer and his Neo-Nazi faction is featured. Cause of... German laws even if the show airs on Netflix.
