Fans are also waiting for further details regarding the series’ plot. It has been confirmed that the series is supposed to take place after the reboot franchise’s most recent third game “Shadow of the Tomb Raider.” However, the conclusion of that game leaves Lara in a proverbial “neutral” state. Safe at home in her opulent manor, Lara ends “Shadow of the Tomb Raider” unsure of where her next adventure will take her. Anything could happen, and that remains doubly true for the plot of the anime.
The series is being written by Tasha Huo, according to Polygon, who has handled multiple other video game-related projects — including “The Witcher: Blood Orange” — in the past. So, while fans may not know exactly what Lara will be up to in the “Tomb Raider” anime, they can rest assured that the minds behind its story likely have a good grasp on the source material. In other words, the ‘Tomb Raider” anime is setting its sights on being faithful to the games. How faithful it is, and how successful that turns out to be, however, are yet to be determined.
