What’s Spriggan about?

Spriggan is based on Ryji Minagawa and Hiroshi Takashige’s classic comic. The classic action manga is revived for the small screen after 30 years, and Spriggan, the blockbuster comic with ten million copies produced, is now another fantastic addition to Netflix’s repertoire.

There is an old relic in the realm of Spriggan that has the ability to affect the world forever. Depending on who discovers the item, society can either become everyone’s worst nightmare or remain the calm world that it is. As a result, it’s up to ARCAM, the organization entrusted with safeguarding this power, to rescue the day.

Spriggan, with only six episodes, might have easily seemed hurried or too short, yet the program manages to get a lot of mileage out of its formula. Each episode is lengthier than a regular TV episode and provides a single tale focusing on a specific relic or myth associated with civilizations all over the world.

Legends from throughout history are re-contextualized as superior technology from those who came before or as what looks to be pure magic. As a result, this series has no long-form plot in mind, and its sole goal is to deliver a collection of full stories that have more breathing room than they could in a TV anime.
