BLAME! is coming to Netflix

Humanity faces purges and extermination in a dark future, and a wanderer named Killy must carry out a solitary, dangerous mission through a mammoth multileveled “city” that continues to expand forever in Tsutomu Nihei’s manga masterpiece SF manga BLAME!

The unique setting, unfathomable scale, and hard, heavy action garnered acclaim from directors and artists both in Japan and abroad, creating hopes that against all odds, a film adaptation might one day happen. Now, twenty years after the original comic began, an animated feature length film is about to be unleashed upon the entire world.

Directing the film will be H iroyuki Seshita, who brought the world the complex, hard SF battles of K nights of Sidonia and the speedy, thrilling suspense of Ajin: DemiHuman. Animation will be handled by Polygon Pictures, known worldwide for their award winning work on shows like S tar Wars: The Clone Wars and T ransformers: Prime , as well as the epic K nights of Sidonia series. On top of that, original creator Tsutomu Nihei is providing full creative direction to the project, handling script and character design. The film is set to premiere exclusively on Netflix globally in 2017.

With the staff of the visionary K nights of Sidonia reunited and the executive supervision of story creator Tsutomu Nihei, BLAME! is ready to shock the world once again with an all new story!

In the distant technological future, civilization has reached its ultimate Netbased form.

An “infection” in the past caused the automated systems to spiral out of order, resulting in a multileveled city structure that replicates itself infinitely in all directions. Now humanity has lost access to the city’s controls, and is hunted down and purged by the defense system known as the Safeguard. In a tiny corner of the city, a little enclave known as the ElectroFishers is facing eventual extinction, trapped between the threat of the Safeguard and dwindling food supplies. A girl named Zuru goes on a journey to find food for her village, only to inadvertently cause doom when an observation tower senses her and summons a Safeguard pack to eliminate the threat. With her companions dead and all escape routes blocked, the only thing that can save her now is the sudden arrival of Killy the Wanderer, on his quest for the Net Terminal Genes, the key to restoring order to the world.
