I’m not sure High-Rise Invasion is your typical Netflix anime. The trailer has plenty of instances of women’s clothing being ripped off during combat.
The survival horror is based on Tsuina Miura and Takahiro Ōba’s High-Rise Invasion (Tenkū Shinpan) which started in 2013 and ran for eigh volumes before ending this year.
Here’s how Netflix describes the show;
The unhinged and gory death-game manga High-Rise Invasion, created by Tsuina Miura (Ajin – Demi-Human) and Takahiro Ōba (Box!), finally gets an anime adaptation! High school student Yuri Honjo finds herself lost in an “abnormal space” where countless skyscrapers are connected by suspension bridges and “masked figures” mercilessly slaughter their confused and fleeing victims. To survive in this hellish world, she has two choices: kill the masked figures or be killed. Yuri is determined to survive in order to destroy this irrational world, but what will be her ultimate fate?
There are at least two sides in this conflict. One of those sides appears to be humanoids possessed by masks and driven to kill. The other seems to be humans who, presumably, might not always be great at cooperation.
Both sides, masked and blood-splattered, each have their own poster.
Netflix has shown 18-rated anime before, so perhaps High-Rise Invasion will go fairly hardcore.
The manga already has a sequel, which has been running in since 2019 in the Magapoke app.
