What is the release date of Spriggan? Netflix has dropped a teaser trailer for its upcoming sci-fi anime series created by David Productions.
Netflix is keen on adding new animes to its ever-expanding library of brilliant shows, TV series, and movies. There are, of course, lots of great anime series that fans can watch as well. Starting Beastars to Demon Slayer or from Sailor Moon to Kuroko’s Basketball, there are some of the popular anime shows in the library. These great anime series and films are already available to stream with more to come. Now with another sci-fi anime Spriggan, fans will get to watch the adaptation of a manga series with the same name.
Written by Hiroshi Takashige, the sci-fi and thriller manga series started its original run back in 1989. With a total of 11 volumes, Spriggan managed to gain a solid fanbase thanks to its interesting world depiction and brilliant characters. The series got its first adaptation in the form of a movie back in 1998. Though it was not the first adaptation as Liquid Mirror Software used Spriggan as a source of inspiration for its computer game in 1999.
After twenty years, Spriggan will get its final adaptation from David Productions who also worked on the hit anime series Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure. As Netflix licensed the rights of Spriggan, we will get to watch the series on the popular streaming platform years later. So what is the release date of Spriggan? When will the new anime land on Netflix?
