Blade Runner: Black Lotus is a highly anticipated anime series produced by Adult Swim in collaboration with Alcon Entertainment and animation studio, Sola Digital Arts. The series is set in the same universe as the 1982 cult classic Blade Runner and its 2017 sequel, Blade Runner 2049.

The show is set in 2032, and the story follows a young woman named Elle (voiced by Arisa Shida) who is a replicant, a bio-engineered android with artificial intelligence. She awakens with no memory of her past and sets out to uncover her mysterious origins while being pursued by government agents and criminals.

Elle's search for her identity leads her to meet a Blade Runner named Joseph (voiced by Will Yun Lee), who is tasked with tracking her down. He believes Elle has valuable information that could change the course of society and the future of replicants.

Along with Elle and Joseph, the series boasts a talented ensemble cast of characters, including the mysterious and dangerous Trixie (voiced by Jessica Henwick) and her partner, Ivy (voiced by Shinshu Fuji).

The animation style of Blade Runner: Black Lotus is in 2D CGI, and the aesthetics of the show capture the neon-lit, dystopian future seen in the movies. The cityscape is filled with flying cars, towering skyscrapers, and streets overflowing with people and replicants alike.

The series also explores the themes of humanity and identity that are prevalent in the Blade Runner universe. The replicants struggle to find their place in a world that sees them as disposable slaves, and Elle's search for her past raises questions about what makes a person truly human.

One of the standout aspects of the show is the music. The iconic composer, Kenji Kawai, who scored the music for the original Blade Runner anime, returns to provide the atmospheric, haunting soundtrack for Blade Runner: Black Lotus.

Overall, Blade Runner: Black Lotus promises to be an exciting addition to the Blade Runner universe, with its captivating characters, stunning visuals, and thought-provoking themes. Whether you're a longtime fan of the franchise or a newcomer to this world, this show is sure to captivate and entertain.

Blade Runner: Black Lotus is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (12 episodes). The series first aired on November 13, 2021.
