First Stranger Things spinoff set to be an anime series?

December 31st, 2022 by Marc Comments

We learned in July (2022) that Matt and Ross Duffer, creators of Stranger Things, had set up Upside Down Pictures at Netflix which, named after the Upside Down in the hit series, would be where Stranger Things and its spinoffs would all be developed and now we may have our first taste of what’s to come in the world of Stranger Things.

In July, Matt Duffer spoke about all the rumours he heard about where Stranger Things goes after its final fifth season (due in 2024) and he said that, so far, no-one has got it right: “It’s not following… I’ve read these rumours that there’s gonna be an Eleven spin-off. That there’s gonna be a Steve and Dustin spin-off or that it’s another number. That’s not interesting to me because we’ve done all that. We’ve spent I don’t know how many hours exploring all of that. So it’s very different.”

At the time we heard that Upside Down Pictures would develop a Stranger Things stage show, live-action series and potential movies, but the new project we’re hearing about it something else altogether.

We’re hearing that an anime limited series called Stranger Things: Tokyo is coming and that in the series ‘an encounter with the Upside Down evolves into a grand adventure for video game-loving twin brothers living on the outskirts of 1980s Tokyo.’

The series, according to the new report, is expected to be around six-hours long and is currently dubbed the first Stranger Things spinoff.

Oddly, this reminds us of the work done by YouTuber Artist Emimi who gave us a look at how Stranger Things would look as anime (here), it looks like she wasn’t too far off the mark.

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….
