Sentai Filmworks has some sci-fi anime in store for its lineup. The latest acquisition announcement is Ingress: The Animation, the adaptation of Niantic’s augmented reality mobile game that first premiered in October 2018 and is currently available to stream on Netflix.
Sentai plans to distribute the anime in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Scandinavia, Spain, Portugal, the Netherlands, and Nordic countries, and a home video release will arrive in March 2022.
Ingress: The Animation is directed by Yuhei Sakuragi (The Relative Worlds), with Takeshi Honda (Den-noh Coil) on character designs for the Craftar production. Here’s how Sentai describes it:
Special Investigator Makoto Midorikawa possesses the unusual ability to unlock and perceive the memories of any object with a single touch. While investigating an explosion at a laboratory, his powers put him in the crosshairs of an international conspiracy centered around Exotic Matter (XM), a mysterious substance that could rewrite the fabric of human destiny. Caught between the Resistance and the Enlightened, rival factions hellbent on exploiting XM to twist civilization to their whim, Makoto must use his abilities to unlock the secrets of XM and save humanity.
