Altered Carbon's Netflix anime reveals its first images and release date

Welcome back to the world of Altered Carbon. The Netflix sci-fi universe has been dropping trailers left and right for its new Anthony Mackie-starring season, but now it has expanded into animation with a new anime from Cowboy Bebop writer Dai Sato and Tsukasa Kondo. It's only fitting for a series all about changing bodies (or "resleeving") would be a perfect fit for an aesthetically different adaptation.

Now that the first look has dropped, fans can see how the consciousness-hopping cyberpunk craziness of the world can push the limits even further thanks to the boundless possibilities of an animated world.

Check it out:

Katanas! Armor! Bloody, bloody battle. What more could an anime fan ask for? However, it also debuts the animation style, which looks to be following in the controversial 3D CG footsteps of Netflix's Ghost in the Shell series. The show, which IMDb has listed as Altered Carbon: Resleeved (though it's yet to be called that in any official capacity), also dropped a release date when debuting its animation style: March 19.

That places the show only about 20 days after Altered Carbon's live-action show drops its second season, so the world is definitely going to be a lot more immortal for the next few months ... unless one of these cyberpunk samurai catches up to them, of course.

The Altered Carbon anime hits Netflix on March 19.
