Based on the 1989 manga by Hiroshi Takashige and Ryoji Minagawa, Spriggan is directed by Hiroshi Kobayashi (Kiznaiver) at the David Production studio, with Chiaki Kobayashi (Yuichi in Tomodachi Game) as the protagonist Yu Ominae.

Netflix, which will exclusively stream the anime starting June 18, describes the series as follows:

A great civilization once existed on this Earth. Possessing scientific knowledge and prowess far beyond that of modern man, the relics of this ancient civilization remain hidden across this world even now.

As high-speed communication networks span the globe and the searching eyes of satellites are able to expose all secrets, the armies of great nations clash as they seek to discover and search for these artifacts, which have unfathomable “power”.

A member of this ancient civilization engraved a message on a plate: “Protect our relics from evildoers. Taking this message to heart, an organization aims to permanently seal this ancient civilization.

The elite secret agents of this organization are known as…Spriggans.
