Viz Media Simulcast of Coppelion on Same Day as Japan
Coppelion was originally greenlit to become an anime in 2010 but due to events at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Facility, it’s been put off until yesterday.
The series originally published in manga format since 2008 has finally made its way to being broadcast on both Japanese television and online here in the US with subtitles. The series centers around the exploits of the Coppelions who are a breed of humans who have been genetically engineered to survive high radiation areas which thanks to an accident in the old capital of Japan, they are uniquely suited to enter and rescue those left behind.
This is one of the more robust titles that is part of this year’s fall anime season in Japan as it’s been hotly anticipated for 3 years now. In case you missed the first episode that aired on October 2, you can now watch the episode on Viz’s streaming anime service and all other new episodes will be coming out each Wednesday until the series has its first break.
Let me break it down for you, leggy teenage girls exploring post apocalyptic Tokyo when all sorts of adventures happen. It’s going to be good, I promise.
