Is ARCAM bad? Who is Larry Markusson?

Based on the manga series of the same name, written by Hiroshi Takashige and illustrated by Ryoji Minagawa, ‘Spriggan’ takes all speculation about advanced ancient civilizations and assumes them to be authentic. Though wars have destroyed those societies, their remains have survived in the form of various artifacts. The title of the Netflix science fiction action ONA refers to a group of elite agents of the ARCAM Corporation, which is part of the militia division. The protagonist of the series is Yu Ominae, one of the best Spriggans currently active in the field. He seems to genuinely believe ARCAM’s mission, at least at first, and has devoted his life to securing – or if necessary shielding or destroying – the ancient artifacts so they don’t fall into the wrong hands.

At the same time, Yu is eventually a teenager and longs for a normal life where he can spend more time with his school friends. Here’s everything you need to know about ‘Sprigan’ Season 1. SPOILERS AHEAD.

Spriggan Season 1 Recap

In Episode 1, titled “Flame Serpent,” the prodigious linguist Rie Yamabishi returns to Japan to investigate ancient ruins beneath Mount Fuji and find her childhood friend Yu Ominae, who was at the orphanage with her. Immediately after landing in Japan, American agents attempt to kidnap her, but a mysterious Spriggan saves her from her would-be captors. The Spriggan and Rie team up to defeat Koichi Moroha of the SVR Far East Division. Mororha reveals herself as the scion of a family that has been the priests of the Shrine of Fire for generations. They were tasked with controlling the volcanic activities of Mount Fuji. Now Moroha wants to free the Flame Serpent, the source of that power. He betrays the Russian government he works for and almost succeeds in starting his destructive march of conquest around the world. However, the Spriggan defeats him, and it’s revealed that the Spriggan and Rie’s friend Yu Ominae are the same person.

In Episode 2, titled “Noah’s Ark,” Yu reunites with fellow Spriggan Jean Jacquemonde and takes on the deadly US Army’s Machiner’s Platoon to protect fellow ARCAM operatives and prevent the US from entering Noah’s Ark. get hands. In Episode 3, titled “The Forest of No Return,” Yu reluctantly teams up with Iwao Akatsuki, an employee of the rival Trident Corporation, and grave robber Yoshino Somei to fight ghosts and cursed spirits and Soma, the nectar of Indian gods, to get.

In Episode 4, titled “Berserker,” Yu battles an ancient weapon known as the Berserker at a secret facility in the United Kingdom. In episode 5, titled ‘The Crystal Skull’, after Professor Kawahara, a key member of the ARCAM, is murdered by the neo-Nazis, Yu teams up with his mentor Oboro, who has infiltrated the neo-Nazis under the name Mirage. and Kawahara’s grieving daughter Suzuko to take down the neo-Nazis and recover a special Crystal Skull, which has the powers to cause nuclear explosions.

In the Season 1 finale titled “The Forgotten Kingdom,” the Island of Ghosts rises from the depths of the Pacific Ocean for the first time in 40 years, and Yu once again unhappily teams up with Yoshino as he ventures onto the island to to learn its secrets. Meanwhile, Larry Markusson of the Trident Corporation arrives on the island on a US Navy ship, searching for the same secrets. He is joined by Bowman, one of Yu’s former mentors.

Spriggan Season 1 Ends: Is ARCAM Evil?

Initially, ‘Sprigan’ establishes ARCAM as a force for good, despite its controversial practices in the ancient relics business and the brutal way it deals with its enemies. In the first season, Akatsuki and Bowman warn Yu about ARCAM’s dubious motives. Yu ardent seems to believe in ARCAM’s overall goals, but it is later revealed that he too has his doubts.

The story is set in a world where ancient civilizations actually existed and were not just speculation. The stories told in religious writings and epics are also real. ARCAM sends its agents around the world to retrieve, lock up or destroy the relics. Unsurprisingly, they come into direct conflict with governments of several countries, including the US and Russia, as well as a rival organization called Trident.

Ironically, although ARCAM’s agents regularly fight with American agents, their headquarters are located in America. Officially, the organization is known as ARCAM Foundation, although it is actually a corporation. They have their own army or militia. The Spriggans are an elite division within the said militia. According to the manga, ARCAM was originally founded by Tea Flatte Arcam, a British woman who has lived since the time of Merlin. It is the legendary wizard from whom she received her immortality and the task of protecting the relics. Today she is simply known as Tea Flatte. She is a Spriggen and has hidden her identity from her comrades.

ARCAM is therefore not an inherently bad organization. However, Henry Garnum, the current president, has ulterior motives. Although he has yet to appear in the Netflix ONA, his elaborate plans are already in motion. He builds a secret coalition with Larry Markusson (aka Larry Markson), the head of the Trident Corporations, who does appear in the show’s final episode.

Along with Markusson, Garnum serves as a major overarching antagonist in the manga series. After taking control of the ARCAM’s field operations, Garnum sends Rie and other investigators to help Trident excavate the South Pole Shrine. Yu and other Spriggans team up with Akatsuki to stop Garnum and Markusson’s plans.

Who is Larry Markusson?

Larry Markusson is a high-ranking figure within the Trident Corporation and serves as a primary antagonist in the original manga series. Trident was established by NATO as an R&D division. Later, however, it started to function as a rogue organization. It is widely believed that Trident is involved in weapons development. The reality is that they are developing weapons using ancient technologies. The American Glovers Heavy Industries, the Japanese Takasumi Zaibatsu and the European Campbell Company are their largest lenders.

In the manga, it is revealed that Markusson and Henry Garnum have reached a secret agreement regarding the relics at the South Pole Shrine. Their former subordinates turned adversaries form a coalition among themselves to take down Markusson and Gurnam.

What is the meaning of the end credits scene?

After the credits stop rolling in “The Forgotten Kingdom,” a mysterious soldier takes out an entire group of mercenaries before contacting his superior officer, whom he calls “Colonel,” informing him that the mission is complete. The Colonel says to the soldier, ‚ÄúTime to retreat. Cleaning up and meeting. I’ve sent your next mission to your terminal.’ The next scene of the series after the credits takes place at Yu’s school. The Sasahara twins talk about Yu missing school again. The soldier of the past, now dressed in the school uniform, appears at the school gate. When Yu’s photo appears on his screen, the Colonel tells him to “Kill Number 43. Also known as Yu Ominae.” The soldier’s eyes turn red, implying that he may have the same powers as Yu and other Spriggans.

This marks the start of the next season of ‘Sprigan’. The soldier here is Sho Kanaya, one of the main antagonists in the original manga. The Colonel is Ralph Cooley. When Yu and Sho were younger, they were taken from all over the world by the CIA agents and US soldiers and included in the ruthless project known as COSMOS or Children Of Soldiers Machine Organic System). This is a black-ops unit made up mostly of brainwashed child soldiers. When Colonel Cooley mentions Number 43, he’s referring to Yu’s code name at COSMOS. Cooley is the head of the project. He lost his left eye and left arm in a fight with Yu after the latter remembered who he was and now wears an eye patch and has a cybernetic limb.

What are the OOPArts? What is orichalcum?

OOPArts is an acronym that stands for artifacts out of place, often referring to powerful ancient relics found in unlikely locations in ‘Sprigan’, while Orichalcum is a metal. The suit that Yu wears is made of Orichalcum. In episode 2, Dr. Mayzel, a member of ARCAM’s research team, Yu the Orichalcum fighting knife he made for him. Both OOPArts and Orichalcum have some meaning in real life. The term OOPArts refers to artifacts found in a historically, archaeologically or paleontologically inexplicable context. Such an artifact may be too scientifically advanced for the time or should not be in the location where it is found according to the current understanding of history. Some well-known OOPArts are the Antikythera Mechanism, The Tamil Bell and The Shroud of Turin.

Several ancient writings mention a type of metal called Orichalcum. In the story of Atlantis from Plato’s ‘Critias’, the eponymous ancient Athenian politician claims that Orichalcum was considered second in value to gold during the time of the Atlanteans, who used the metal to mine the metal and use it extensively. . By the time of Critias, however, Orichalcum had become part of the Atlantean legend. Over the years, scholars have speculated that it could be several things, including platinum, some form of copper alloy, an unknown metal, or an alloy of unknown metals.
