Blade Runner: Black Lotus has confirmed its release date window with its very first trailer! Adult Swim and Crunchyroll are working on a number of new collaborative projects, and one of the most surprising is a new anime series set within the Blade Runner universe. This new series has been fairly mysterious since it was first announced to be in the works back in 2018, but after a long wait we have finally gotten our best and fullest look at the new series yet with its very first trailer showing fans what to expect.
Debuted during the special panel for the series as part of Comic-Con @ Home 2021, Blade Runner: Black Lotus has confirmed it will be making its debut on Adult Swim and Crunchyroll some time this Fall. Although there's no set release date for this new series just yet, this first trailer for it debuts its full CG look animated by SOLA Digital Arts!
