Lazarus - the new anime by Shinichiro Watanabe

The brilliant Japanese author Shinichiro Watanabe (Cowboy Bebop, Samurai Champloo, Space Dandy, Carol and Tuesday) returns with a new and interesting project: Lazarus.
Presented in recent days at Comic-Con Int. by Watanabe himself with some character designs and the official logo, it is an original anime which will be made at the well-known Japanese animation studio MAPPA (Chainsaw Man, Jujutsu Kaisen, Attack on Titan The Final Season).

Adult Swim senior vice-president Jason DeMarco confirmed that the Japanese author will direct the individual episodes, with the staff also including Chad Stahelski (John Wick stuntman) who will take care of the action scenes, the jazz player and saxophonist Kamasi Washington and the producers and DJs Floating Points and Bonobos.

The story is set in 2052: an era of unprecedented peace and prosperity throughout the world as humanity was freed from disease and pain thanks to a miracle drug. But the drug is later found to condemn those who have taken it to certain death after three years. In response to this threat, a special task force of 5 operatives is assembled from around the world to save humanity. This group is called "Lazarus".

Expected in 2024, here the first teaser:
