The anime short
is finally out and it’s just as great as I expected it to be.
The chance of this not being good was already slim with , the director of Cowboy Bebop, at the helm directing this
short but I didn’t count on it blowing my expectations out of the water.
Blade Runner 2022 is set three years after the original movie but a few dozen years before the sequel and provides quite a bit of information that neatly ties in with the new movie.
Shinichiro Watanabe lives up to his name with Blade Runner 2022 by delivering 15-minutes of action packed, thought provoking and solid one-liners along with exploring the philosophical ethics of artificial intelligence.
Blade Runner Black Out 2022 follows the story of two new replicant androids on their way to Black Out 2022 for a mission. From the opening sequence to the intricate details, the . A database with information about replicants has been released making them easier to find and kill.
The protagonists are on a mission to take down the database on a stolen gas truck and some fine gun slinging sequences.
The two original replicants are part of the rebellion group “black out” that plan to detonate a nuclear warhead in low orbit above Los Angeles, which will generate an EMP powerful enough to not only knock out any electrical device in the area but also destroys all the backup records on the ground.
This is the act that leads to the replicant prohibition. This is an important point since it leads directly to the Blade Runner 2049 short, Blade Runner 2036: Nexus in which we meet Jared Leto’s Niander Wallace who created Nexus 9 in 2036.
It’s a piece of art
As an anime, Blade Runner 2022 is a piece of art that shows just how a western anime adaption should be like. Every moment of the short is exceptionally well done and polished. It combines all the good elements of
with the complex and thought provoking world of Blade Runner for a truly amazing experience.
My only gripe with Blade Runner 2022 is that it’s just too short and leaves me wanting more of it.
