An Anime Based On Ingress, The First Game By The Creators Of Pokemon GO, is Coming To Netflix

Ingress: The Animation will be coming to Netflix in October. Created by animation studio Crafter, with character designs by Takeshi Honda (Neon Genesis Evangelion) and directed by CG artist Yuhei Sakuragi, Ingress: The Animation will be an adaptation of the augmented-reality game Ingress.

The key art released for Ingress: The Animation.

Ingress, created by Niantic, the company behind Pokemon GO, tells the story of a world where exotic matter is leaking into the world through portals, giving people psychic powers and causing a whole host of instability.

The show will star Makoto and Sarah, two people impacted by the matter’s strange ingress (see, the title makes sense!) and drawn into the faction battles that make up the core of the game’s story as well. The story line will overlap with the original game and will, according to Variety‘s report, be used to segue into Ingress Prime, the upcoming game sequel.

But that’s not what interests us. What interests us: snazzy anime! Evangelion‘s character designer! More quality animation on Netflix! All good stuff.



  • My experience with Ingress was primarily frustration and boredom. The overwhelming majority of nodes appeared to be well locked down by the people who quite bloody obviously lived/worked near them, with some of the most awful, contrived so-called ‘locations’ added to the game as a matter of convenience to the people who live/work/commute near them for locking down and farming.

    Travelling around with a couple friends you had near zero chance of having any temporary impact let alone lasting impact on well-entrenched zones of control, basically rendering the entire point of the game moot.
