Blade Runner anime series coming…

December 3rd, 2019 by Marc Comments

Now THIS is some exciting news that just makes you feel warm and gooey inside.

Adult Swim, Crunchyroll and Alcon Entertainment are working on a Blade Runner 2049 anime series called Blade Runner: Black Lotus.

The series will be 13 episodes and – best news yet! – will be directed by Appleseed’s Shinji Aramaki and Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex’s Kenji Kamiyama.

The series will be set in 2032 and will feature pre-established characters from the franchise.

Aramaki previously worked on the Blade Runner universe as mechanical designer on 2049’s prequel short Blade Runner: Black Out 2022 which was animated by Sola Digital Arts who will be bringing us this new series.

No word yet on when it will begin or when we’ll see it but I’m very confident it’ll be worth the wait.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
