SPRIGGAN is Netflix’s newest original anime releasing on 6/18/22.

After seeing the Trailer for Spriggan back in May, I was curious. I had never seen the 1998 film, so I figured it was time to check that out and while I’m at it, I’ll read the manga.

The U.S. never saw a full release of the Spriggan manga, as Viz only brought over 3, heavily edited volumes, renamed “Striker“.

Luckily, Seven Seas Entertainment will be releasing a complete English translation in the U.S. for the first time! Spriggan will release in 4 Deluxe editions. Pre-order below (Amazon affiliate link).

What is the SPRIGGAN manga about?

In the waning years of the Cold War era, national governments and paramilitary forces are in a race to uncover the relics of an ancient civilization that once ruled the Earth. The technology holds seemingly miraculous powers, but in the wrong hands, this power could spell disaster. 

Only the ARCAM Corporation’s elite special operatives, the SPRIGGAN, have what it takes to stand up against an international rogue’s gallery of power-hungry cyborgs and gunmen who covet ultimate power. Brash and fearless Yu Ominae, a teenage SPRIGGAN equipped with ARCAM’s strongest power armor, will do whatever it takes to keep the past’s forbidden legacy buried away!
