How many of you are fans of anime here? I’m sure that many of you are. And why would you not be. I have never seen any other animation or production convey emotion and plot points as an anime does. It is simply divine, and at times, an eye-opening experience. And this week, we are going to talk about another such upcoming anime, Spriggan. Spriggan is one that I have been wanting to talk about for quite some time now. And recently, in the latest news, Netflix has made another huge announcement for the anime. Netflix has revealed a new Spriggan release date, that I am sure all of you must be dying to know. But more on that later.
Spriggan has been on the table for quite some time now and anime lovers have been waiting for it for so long. It is just making us impatient with the amount of time that it has been making us wait for the release. It was not supposed to take this long, and yet here we are. It is almost the end of 2021 and we are still waiting on the network to release the anime.
And Spriggan is kind of a big deal. Mostly because of where it comes from. Spriggan is based on the manga of the same name from 1989. The manga, when it came out, was highly popular and loved by everyone who read it. Then after the continued success of the manga, Spriggan was adapted into an anime movie in 1998. Needless, to say, the movie was also really good and stayed true to the Manga, maintaining the sanctity of the story.
So after all that happened, it was decided that Spriggan should be brought back to life in a new form and in a new age. Which I personally find to be a very good decision. Don’t you feel the same. I feel that we should breathe new life into old classics from time to time. Even old productions can do with a bit of touch up and technological innovation from time to time. Good animation is a huge part of anime, so it really matters a lot for the production team to innovate on this front, as this gives them a lot of leeway for other things.
Talking about animes, if you have read this far into the article, I’m sure that you’re a fan of anime and manga. And if you’re not, you’re at least interested in finding out more about them. Isn’t that the case? Since it is, I’m going to recommend another anime to you. Read all about Star Wars Visions Trailer: All About The Anime Star Wars Series. I feel that this should be quite an interesting topic for both these subgroups. Anime lovers are surely going to be excited by the release of a Star Wars anime, while those who already love Star Wars but aren’t into anime may explore it as a gateway to getting into it.
But anyway, let us talk a bit more about Spriggan, the star of the show today, that I’m personally really excited for.
Spriggan: About The Anime
Spriggan has had a lot of popularity over the course of its existence, mainly due to the 1999 movie. But it is now coming to our TV screens. And the production team behind it is fabulous to say the least. Spriggan is directed by Hiroshi Kobayashi from Kill la Kill and written by Hiroshi Seko from Attack on Titan, Mob Psycho 100, and Jujutsu Kaisen. If those names don’t have you by the edge of your seats, then I’m not sure what will. Because those animes are really another level of amazing and are adored the world over. Also, another big name you have probably heard of is David Productions. David Productions is the chief leader on this project, and thus a product of high quality and amazing finish is expected. So seeing such a stellar production team behind the sets, my hopes are quite high for the anime.
Spriggan is the story of Yū Ominae, who is a high school student. But he is also someone who is not just a high school student and is leading a double life as the “Spriggan”. He is an elite covert agent who is working in secret for the recovery of powerful ancient relics and artifacts and to stop them from falling into the wrong hands. Quite a responsibility, I have to say. Set in the later years of the Cold War, Spriggan has a vibe that is perfectly set and suitable for the sort of time that it came out in and the sort of environment that it wants to create. It is an opportunity well taken in my opinion.

Spriggan Release Date
Now comes the part that most of you have been waiting for. And frankly, I would say the same for myself. Spriggan has had us waiting for so long, and it is getting really tough to keep up with all the wait. It is not an easy task to produce an anime, but it has been so long since it was announced. And it had us on the edge of our seats when it came out. And the wait is only making it that much more anticipated.
The anime was announced back in 2019 and was supposed to be released by now. But owing to the coronavirus pandemic, things didn’t exactly go as they had been planned. In fact, it has been quite difficult for most production teams to get back on track. I’m sure you can understand their plight.
In any case, the anime was eventually delayed. And now Netflix, recently announced the release date for Spriggan as 2022. So it is still quite a long wait for those of us who are waiting for the series. But it is what it is. I just hope the anime is worth the wait.
