Blade Runner Anime Short Announced




Western movie franchise Blade Runner is obtaining an animated tribute entitled “Blade Runner Blackout 2022” by Cowboy Bebop director Shinichiro Watanabe, with many having high hopes that the Japanese will be able to better adapt such a franchise than Hollywood ever could.

A PV, with animation being covered by Cygames Pictures:

The anime short (which takes place between the original film and the upcoming Blade Runner 2049) revolves around a mass power outage in the U.S. – the animation will emerge sometime in the future.

    Adapting a life action movie/franchise into an anime is far easier than the other way around...

    theres shitty anime adaptation all the time and they dont need to resort to western franchises to do that. they do that to their own manga.

    im pretty sure we all know at least one anime that didnt live up to the manga. all anime ever is is an adaptation of another material and 90% of anime is shit.

    Anime itself started from adapting from the West, and while I don't mind or think it an issue, anime took most of it's ideas from Western influence, and vice versa when it comes to Western movies and anime, they both take each other's ideas and use them in their works. One Piece took the pirate idea, Naruto took the military squad aspect, my hero academy, of course from Western super heroes

    The Highlander anime is the only spin-off to the original that even comes remotely close to being acceptable.

    You do realize there are completely original anime adapted from nothing, right?

    and whats your point? we're talking about anime adaptations here. even if you take anime original titles into account, you immediately take them out of the formula because they arent adaptations.

    Matrix had a very cool anime version, so did Batman.

    Anyone else disappointed that it is going to be a short, rather than a full length movie?

    Cykagames... Not sure how to feel about them. Super salty from their gacha games, but they probably have a large budget.

    just remember game studios and anime studios has little to nothing in common except same CEO, and IPs.

    I'm not big fan of gacha games either but...
    yeah Shinichiro watanabe being the director is pretty amazing.

    The original Blade Runner has been influencing and inspiring manga and anime for decades. This just seems redundant.

    guessing this is going to be the third of the three prequel short films?
