Netflix announces new anime, including Dragon’s Dogma, Spriggan, Vampire in the Garden, and many more
Netflix has been getting more and more exclusive anime content with comprehensive partnerships with several anime studios, including Production I.G. and BONES. And now, they have announced new partnerships with animation studios Anima, Sublimation, and David Production.
Of course, this means we’re getting new exclusive anime. From Sublimation, they are adapting Capcom’s hit Dragon’s Dogma game into a Netflix anime.
Capcom first released the game for the PS3 in 2012. Here’s how Netflix describes the anime’s story:
The story follows a man’s journey seeking revenge on a dragon who stole his heart. On his way, the man is brought back to life as an ‘Arisen’. An action adventure about a man challenged by demons who represent the seven deadly sins of humans.
Meanwhile, WiT Studio, the studio behind Attack on Titan, will be working on an original anime series for Netflix. Its title is Vampire in the Garden. Here’s how Netflix describes its story:
An original series by WIT STUDIO on two girls Momo and Fine from different backgrounds who meet by chance. A story about an unlikely friendship between human and vampire race that intertwines with the power or music.
Meanwhile, BONES will be adapting Mark Millar and Leinil Yu’s Super Crooks comic book. Here’s how Icon Comics, a Marvel imprint, describes its story:
One last heist. That’s what they all say, right? Just one final score, and everyone can retire and take up fishing. Thing is, the jails are filled with super villains who thought the same thing, and got busted. But the Heat’s in a jam. He’s run up the kind of gambling debt that – if he can’t pay it back in cash – will be paid in blood. Nobody wants to see the most beloved supercrook of all time rubbed out by the mob – especially his biggest fan, Johnny Bolt. And Johnny’s got a plan to help the Heat and make all his buddies disgustingly rich at the same time. Unfortunately for Johnny’s recruits, they have to head to Spain and rob the world’s most notorious super villain blind. And that’s where things get tricky.
Studio Anime meanwhile is adapting the Netflix original series, Altered Carbon, into an anime. Its title will be Altered Carbon: Resleeved , and it will be an “animated spin-off” of the Netflix series.
Finally, David’s Production is adapting Hiroshi Takashige and Ryouji Minagawa’s Spriggan manga as part of their partnership with Netflix. The manga’s story centers on Yuu Ominae, a high school student who is also a Spriggan, an agent charged by the ARCAM Corporation to protect the ancient relics of an advanced older civilization from falling into the hands of states and entities who wish to misuse them.
