Altered Carbon: Resleeved trailer previews Netflix’s new anime series
Following last month’s second season premiere of Anthony Mackie’s live-action series adaptation of Altered Carbon, Netflix has released the official trailer for their upcoming anime adaptation titled Altered Carbon: Resleeved which hails from Cowboy Beboy creator Dai Sato. The newest sci-fi series will be available for steaming on March 19. Check out the video in the player below along with the poster!
Set in the same universe of Netflix’s live-action sci-fi series, Altered Carbon: Resleeved will explore new elements of the story mythology. On the planet Latimer, Takeshi Kovacs must protect a tattooist while investigating the death of a yakuza boss alongside a no-nonsense CTAC.
The anime series is created by Dai Sato, who is known as the creative mind behind the popular Cowboy Beboy. It is directed by Jō Nakajima from a script co-written by Sato and Tsukasa Kondo. The new adaptation is a production by Japanese animated studio Anima.
Based on the classic science fiction novels by Richard K. Morgan, Altered Carbon is an intriguing story of murder, love, sex, and betrayal, set more than 300 years in the future. In season one — currently available to stream on Netflix — society has been transformed by new technology: consciousness can be digitized; human bodies are interchangeable; death is no longer permanent. Takeshi Kovacs is the lone surviving soldier in a group of elite interstellar warriors who were defeated in an uprising against the new world order. His mind was imprisoned, “on ice”, for centuries until Laurens Bancroft (James Purefoy), an impossibly wealthy, long-lived man, offers Kovacs the chance to live again. In exchange, Kovacs has to solve a murder… that of Bancroft himself.
