Spriggan Anime Looks Ahead to June Launch with New Key Visual


David Production’s anime adaptation of Hiroshi Takashige and Ryoji Minagawa’s 1989 Spriggan manga is almost upon us, with Netflix lining the series up for release on June 18. Ahead of that, you can get ready for the action to come in a new key visual full of all the characters you can look forward to in the show.

Hiroshi Kobayashi (Kiznaiver) directs and Chiaki Kobayashi (Louis James Moriarty in Moriarty the Patriot) stars in the new adaptation. The illustration below comes from character designer and chief animation director Shuhei Handa (Little Witch Academia).

Here’s how Netflix describes Spriggan:

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.
