The first trailer for an animation project in the Blade Runner universe with the subtitle “Black Lotus” has appeared on the network.

The plot tells about the replicant girl Elle, for whom a real hunt is opened, while she tries to find out the details of her past. In addition, Niander Wallace (the head of the Replicant Corporation) and the representative of the Runners, Marlowe, should appear in the plot.

Black Lotus is directed by director Shinji Aramaki (Apple Seed) and screenwriter Kenji Kamiyama (Ghost in the Shell: Loner Syndrome).

The 13-episode season is slated to premiere in the fall.
