Blade Runner: Black Lotus has debuted the first poster for its mysterious new anime series! Adult Swim and Crunchyroll are collaborating on a number of original anime projects that will begin releasing within the year, and one of the most mysterious is the brand new story set within the Blade Runner universe, Blade Runner: Black Lotus. Partnering with Alcon Entertainment, this new 13 episode series takes place between the events of Blade Runner and the Blade Runner 2049 sequel. Shinji Aramaki (Ultraman) and Kenji Kamiyama (Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex) will be directing episodes for SOLA Digital Arts, and Cowboy Bebop's Shinichiro Watanabe serves as creative producer.

Taking the virtual stage for a special panel as part of Comic-Con @ Home 2021, Blade Runner: Black Lotus debuted its fullest look yet with not only the first trailer debuting the CG anime series, but the first poster for the project as well. Both releases give off the same vibes as the original Blade Runner films, and tease what we can expect to see from the new anime project when it finally debuts sometime this Fall with Adult Swim and Crunchyroll. Check out the new poster below:
