Copellion Simulcast Set to Debut October 2

Earlier today, VIZ Media broke the news on their long-awaited debut of COPPELION. The new series will reportedly dubet the same day as Japan, with the first episode available this next Wednesday, October 2. The sci-fi drama is produced by the same studio behind anime series K, thus viewers can expect the same pedigree in the way of gorgeous visuals and fast action.

We’re sure there are some folks out there who are unfamiliar with COPPELION. Thus, we’re here to break things down for you: in the not-so-distant future, a catastrophic event has turned the old capital of Japan into a wasteland, forever changing the lives of its denizens. Decades later, the Coppelion — genetically engineered humans, created by the Japan Ground Self-Defense Forces, tasked with operating under the lethal conditions of the contaminated city — set foot into the now forsaken landscape… But it’s ultimately three schoolgirls’ shoulders on which the mission falls: rescue those left behind!

To get a better idea of what to expect from the show, be sure to scope the trailer below.
