What is Spriggan About?
Spriggan is set in a world where ancient civilizations wielded advanced technology and ruled all of the earth. The misuse of these weaponised artefacts led to the downfall and disappearance of those civilizations. During the Cold War, military forces of many nations are trying to get their hands on the artefacts which are still known to exist. They wish to claim it for the sole purpose of waging war on their enemies.
The artefacts called “out of place artefacts” or OOPArts are protected by an Organization called ARCAM. The ARCAM corporation’s military wing, the defence academy trains an elite force called strikers or Spriggans who are capable of keeping national military forces in check and away from the OOPArts that are discovered in the world.
A discovery in the mountains of Turkey has led people to believe that Noah’s Ark may have been found. The US military forces led by Col MacDougal are on the move to acquire it to establish global supremacy. Japanese Spriggan Yu Ominae has been tasked with preventing this misfortune. Along with French Spriggan Jean-Jacques Mondo, Yu is set for an all-out battle to keep the US Machine Corps away from the artefact.

The original anime series is not really available on streaming platforms for people who would like to watch that as well but may show up upon some hunting on the internet!
Q. Is the Spriggan movie available to stream on Netflix?
A. None of the Netflix’d licensed regions including Japan are currently streaming the Spriggan anime full movie. Hopefully, after the animated version’s success, we can see the movie getting added to Netflix’s catalog in the near future.
Q. What about the Spriggan Manga?
A. There are 11 volumes of the Spriggan manga that were released over 7 years. Viz Media has translated 3 of the 11 volumes which are available for purchase!

Q. Is Spriggan a good anime?
A. Spriggan has a rating of 7.1/10 on My Anime List for its manga release. The Spriggan Anime full movie did not fare significantly well in terms of viewer reviews. The Netflix reboot seems very promising as they have an already solid story to work with and can effectively pace the series without rushing or cramming any of the content. The story arcs can be released in seasons and have more time to develop well. Overall, the Spriggan anime series seems to be promising!
