What we know about Blade Runner: Black Lotus
The anime, which will consist of 13 episodes and debuts this fall on the stars and stripes television via Adult Swim and in Japan on Crunchyroll, will follow the story of a brand new replicant named Elle (voiced by Jessica Henwick in English and Arisa Shida in Japanese) which was created for unknown purposes.
All we know about her is that she is confused, very gifted, and will have some sort of role in the changing world of Blade Runner between the Tyrell Corporation from the original film and the Wallace Corporation from the sequel.
