Watanabe's Blade Runner short film Black Out 2022 was great, so if that will serve as their inspiration for the series I think it could have a lot of potential.

    I've enjoyed both movies and wow I am so stoked that Shinichiro Watanabe is in on it with Adult Swim/Crunchyroll. That at least makes me hopeful!
