VIZ Media re-published the three volumes of the manga, called Striker in North America from 1998 to 1999 and ADV Films released the film adaptation in April of 1999. “Spriggan” takes place in the closing years of the cold war, where the ARCAM Corporation, an organization that considers itself the protectors of the unknown artifacts called “out of place artifacts” (OOPArt) to ensure they are not misused as weapons.
