Spriggan is an upcoming Netflix Original Japanese sci-fi anime series and adaptation of the classical manga created by Hiroshi Takashige and illustrated by Ryōji Minagawa. The manga ran for 11 volumes and was initially published in Weekly Shnen Sunday in February 1989, then in Shnen Sunday Zkan from 1992 to 1996.
