Blade Runner Black Out 2022 is the anticipated Blade Runner 2049 prequel in the form of anime from the creator of Cowboy Bebop, which you can already see in Crunchyroll.

It was already known that the new film by Denis Villeneuve and direct sequel to the homonym of Ridley Scott was to have a series contained satellites in format of shorts, prequels, and animes to go heating engines and fill the gaps that have happened in the 30 years of difference that there is of one and another. Perhaps the best known is that of the creator of Cowboy Bebop, which is the issue that has us today in hand.

The Blade Runner 2049 prequel from Cowboy Bebop creator is now available

However, anime-type prequels within the Blade Runner 2049 universe are available. These shorts, which have been thrown with droppers are composed of three pecs that tell the story prior to the events of the last film, each focused on a specific character.

In this way, the first two short-prequel were led by the son of Ridley Scott, Luke. “Blade Runner 2036: Nexus Dawn” tells the story of the origin of the character played in the film by Jared Leto, Niander Wallace. The second, “2048: Nowhere to Run”, did the same with the character of Dave Bautista in Blade Runner 2049, Sapper.

This is when the third and final prequel, Blade Runner Black Out 2022, which is now available in Crunchyroll (for the moment exclusively), is what tells us the story happened in the three years after the events of the first film and, unlike the two short films by Luke Scott, is animated and tells the story of the human supremacist movement and the incident that led to the prohibition of the Replicants.

The animated short is available, as we say, exclusively in Crunchyroll and totally free, as long as it is enough for you to see it as 480p, since to see it in HD you will need a subscription to the service.
