When you look at the countless sci-fi anime series over the years, it is hard to argue the influence of Blade Runner, the film based upon Philip K. Dick’s legendary story Do Android’s Dream of Electric Sheep?. In fact there has been enough series influenced by the film and original story that an anime fan by the name of Chris Kessler was able to recreate the trailer for Blade Runner using anime footage from the 90s.
It has been a dream of many anime fans to see Blade Runner in anime form and while series like Psycho-Pass come quite close to the same sort of feeling that Blade Runner had, this fan-made trailer brings the film into the realm of anime to amazing effect.
Check it out below for a look at what could have been. While the fan-made trailer is quite a spectacle it is highly unlikely that Blade Runner will ever get an anime series adaptation, sadly those chances seem to be lost in time like… tears in the rain.
