26/07/2016 Leave a comment
Video-on-Demand subscription service Netflix have announced that they will be once again teaming up with animation studio Polygon Pictures in order to release a CGI anime film based upon Tsutomu Nihei manga BLAME! The film, which will receive a gloabl debut on Netflix next year, will also be created and broadcast in 4k UDR meaning that anyone with a 4K HDTV will be able to watch it at it’s best possible picture quality.
For those unaware Polygon Pictures are the animation studio which brought Knights of Sidonia to life, while Netflix streamed both seasons of the show on it’s service. BLAME! on the other hand is a manga series created by Tsutomu Nihei which sees a group of soldiers (and friends) team to up to save their dwindling civilization from the brink of oblivion. The story, and it’s animation production, are very similar to Knights of Sidonia so it’s easy to see why Netflix opted to support the project by offering somewhere to Stream the film.
In any event BLAME! will receive it’s worldwide debut on Netflix next year afterwhich we suspect that some form of Blu-ray (and DVD) will be released shortly after. In the meantime you can check out a teaser trailer for BLAME! which has been released by Netflix.
