The April issue of Gessan magazine announced on Tuesday that manga Spriggan will get an anime adaptation. It will be using the "newest technology" for its animation and will be streamed via Netflix worldwide. David Production will be producing the anime. More information will be revealed in future issues of the magazine. The anime is also part of the Netflix New Anime Lineup.

Synopsis
Many years ago, an ancient civilization ruled Earth. They had a very advanced technology but were destroyed in the end due to the misuse of their creations. These people left messages for later generations in the form of indestructible message plates written in an ancient language.

Several armed organizations began to secretly search for these artifacts to use them for their own good and against their enemies. The ARCAM Corporation is trying to stop these forces from destroying themselves with these "advanced" machines. The main character of the story, Yu Ominae, is one of the elite agents that work for ARCAM under the name of Spriggans.

Spriggan was written by Hiroshi Takashige and drawn by Ryouji Minagawa. The manga was serialized in Shounen Sunday Super magazine from February 1989 to January 1996 for total of 11 volumes. It also ran in the monthly anthology magazine Manga Vizion from June 1997 to February 1998. A movie adaptation by Studio 4°C premiered in September 1998.

VIZ Media published three of the manga's volumes in English as Striker from November 5, 1995 to May 6, 1999. The release was heavily edited in an attempt to mask anti-American sentiments.

Thought it was weird when I got a notification for it thinking it was just a movie special I didn't watch but instead a new anime. Okay I guess. Hopefully it's more entertaining than the movie was, assuming I don't forget about it.

It will be using "newest technology" to animate

Hoping this doesn't mean full CGI.

Holy shit. This could blow the '98 movie out of the water and into the stratosphere.

If they do the CGI in the style like in the JoJo openings, that would be great.

The old movie was bad. This feels like it came out of nowhere.

I always saw potential in this manga even tho the movie was basically a dumpster fire.

Yikes, this looks pretty interesting in all honesty. I'm going to look forward to watching this. Rare to see such promising military show from the synopsis.

The CGI openings are not done by David Prod, but by Kamikaze Douga

If the quality of the drawings will be like that of the film and those made in those years, like "Jin-Rou" and companions, then I will be even more satisfied. However, this news already took me by surprise, I didn't really believe that one day they would announce an anime.

Synopsis sounds great. I don't really mind CGI as long as it's on the Sidonia-level of quality and well executed story.

Sounds interesting. That 'shounen' tag makes me a bit wary tho.

"Using the newest tech for animation" is making it sound like it's gonna be another CGI show... sigh
