Blade Runner 2022

Blade Runner Black Out 2022 is set to make its world premiere on Crunchyroll and VRV

"The second was to make this anime true to the world but not an imitation". Blade Runner Black Out 2022 will be available via those platforms beginning on Tuesday 9/26 at 4:49am PST in regions worldwide except Asia.

Anime fans and Blade Runner fans got a bit of great news last week, when we learned that Cowboy Bebop's Shinichiro Watanabe would be directing an anime prequel short film for Blade Runner 2049. Black Out 2022 also serves as a part of a series of animated short films that expand upon and bridge the gap between the original classic and the upcoming sequel. He also talks how about important it was to respect to the original film in the creation of this animated project.

Beveridge added: "I was truly inspired by Villeneuve's artistic vision for Blade Runner 2049 and how it could come to life in this new blend".

Blade Runner 2049 is set for release on October 6th and sees Harrison Ford reprising the role of Rick Deckard alongside Ryan Gosling, Ana de Armas, Sylvia Hoeks, Robin Wright, Mackenzie Davis, Carla Juri, Lennie James, Dave Bautista, Jared Leto and Edward James Olmos.
