It’s been a while since we heard of Spriggan. When Netflix first announced that it was receiving an anime adaptation and then was forgotten for some years; several loud sighs floated around the internet, hoping for its release.
But here it is now with a proper trailer, revealing action-packed drama, and Zelda BOTW vibe, with all the ancient technology there ready for corruption. The anime world is full of creativity, and there is no end to high-quality story-telling that Japanese authors have refined their art in the form of Manga.
Shounen is a rich genre and one of the more famous ones; especially regarding the number of sales that Manga achieves. It is a genre geared towards young teenage boys and usually is made with a male hero who goes on a romantic adventure filled with quests, questions, and challenges.
So, When Is It Released? Long Wait Ahead?
Gladly we won’t have to wait for long. The series Spriggan is set to be delivered on June 18th, 2022. Finally, there is a trailer and a release date after a long wait. Netflix has produced great animes like Violet Evergarden and Dorohedoro. If you guys haven’t checked them out, then please do. More viewership will lead to more seasons. Hopefully, Dorohedoro will get an announcement for another season soon.
What Is The Plot Of Spriggan?
Several years ago, there was a civilization that utterly dominated the Earth, but like all great things, it possessed the key to its destruction within itself. However, there was one important legacy they left behind for future generations, their arsenal of exotic weapons and their most prized innovations. With corruption around the corner, several different factions, who are enemies to one another, are after these ancient powers to dominate the other and ultimately spread their rule.
There is a catch, though! Spriggans, the soldiers who destroy these ancient weapons, part of ARCAM Corporation, are ready to intervene in the goals of these enemies and stop them during their planning. The protagonist is Yu Ominae, a high school student working as a Spriggan.
Producers And Director
The latest anime is being produced by David Production (Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure); and the director behind the art team is Hiroshi Kobayashi (Kiznaiver). Hiroshi Seko manages the series’ scripts (previously worked on Attack on Titan and Jujutsu Kaisen).
Spriggananime is based upon the Manga of the same name from the author Hiroshi Takashige and the illustrator Ryouji Minagawa. The Manga had 11 volumes, and it was first published in Weekly Shounen on a Sunday in February 1989. Earlier it had been adapted as a movie before this anime adaptation. It came in 1988 with the efforts of the studio 4⁰C.
It will be another action-filled Saturday. Can’t wait to pick up the fate of humanity in my own eyes!
