Blame!, the hit manga that ran from 1997 to 2003, will be adapted into a Netflix Original anime film to be released globally.
Blame! will be available to fans around the world via Netflix soon. The anime adaptation is the result of a deal between Netflix and Polygon Pictures.
Blame! is set in a dystopian future, where remnants of the human race dwell within a labyrinth called the Megastructure. The story follows the mysterious Killy, an individual who’s on a quest to save humanity from impending extinction.
The award-winning creator of Blame!, Tsutomu Nihei, has worked with director Hiroyuki Seshita to create this anime. The duo have previously partnered on Knights of Sidonia, a sci-fi anime series that got its start as a manga too.
Both shows will be released in cutting-edge high dynamic range (HDR) format, a milestone for the anime industry.
