GREAT PRETENDER is an original anime project by WIT Studio. It was released exclusively on Netflix in two batches, running for a total of 23 episodes. It featured the song The Great Pretender by Freddie Mercury as the opening theme. Netflix describes the story:
Supposedly Japan’s greatest swindler, Makoto Edamura gets more than he bargained for when he tries to con Laurent Thierry, a real world-class crook. After their string of successful cons, Makoto leaves Laurent’s team. But the web of deceit binding them together goes farther back than he knows.
The format for GREAT PRETENDER razbliuto is still unclear. The theatrical version might just be released over multiple episodes (3-4) on streaming platforms, and we will write about any updates as soon as they are available.
