Netflix continues to expand its slate of original anime films and TV shows, but viewers will have to wait a little while longer before they see Spriggan. The series, based on the best-selling manga by Hiroshi Takashige and Ryoji Minagawa, has been bumped to 2022. In the meantime, the streamer has released a new official teaser to whet your appetite.
As a manga, Spriggan has sold over ten million copies worldwide. It was originally serialized from 1989 to 1996 in Shogakukan’s Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine (which, for some reason, publishes on Wednesday, not Sunday). Anime was beginning to find more of a Western audience with movies like Akira and Ghost in the Shell, and Spriggan soon capitalized on this with its own film adaptation, which hit theaters in Japan in 1998 and eventually made its way stateside in 2001.
Now, a new TV anime adaptation is headed to Netflix. The first teaser for Spriggan, which debuted back in October 2020, ended with the words “coming 2021.” This new teaser changes that to “coming 2022.”
