BLADE RUNNER: BLACK LOTUS Anime Gets A New Trailer, Poster And November Premiere Date

Adult Swim and Crunchyroll have finally announced a premiere date for Blade Runner: Black Lotus, which will be set between the events of Ridley Scott's sci-fi classic & Denis Villeneuve's superb sequel.

We got a first look at Blade Runner: Black Lotus earlier this year via an announcement teaser, but Adult Swim and Crunchyroll have now debuted a full trailer for the upcoming anime series, which is set to premiere on Toonami on November 13 with two back-to-back episodes.

Set between the events of Ridley Scott's seminal sci-fi classic and Denis Villeneuve's acclaimed Blade Runner: 2049, Black Lotus will focus on a new replicant character named Elle (voiced by Jessica Henwick in English and Arisa Shida in Japanese) who was created for some unknown purposes.

Specific plot points are still a little hazy, but from what we can gather, Elle will play an integral part in bridging the gap between the films as the Tyrell Corporation crumbles and makes way for the Wallace Corporation. The trailer also features plenty of familiar sights and sounds from the neon-drenched world Scott first brought to life back in 1982, and while the CG animation might prove to be divisive, we are getting a strong Blade Runner vibe.

Check out the trailer along with a new poster, and let us know what you think.

You can check out the full voice cast along with some character details below.
