"Spriggan" is based on the Japanese manga series written by Hiroshi Takashige and illustrated by Ryōji Minagawa. Spriggan takes places in the last years of the Cold War where mysterious and unknown artifacts called out-of-place artifacts (OOPArt) are discovered in various parts of the world, leading to a secret war between various forces against the ARCAM Corporation, an organization that placed itself the guardians of the OOPArts in order to prevent them from being used as weapons. It was serialized in Shogakukan's manga magazines Weekly Shōnen Sunday and Shōnen Sunday Zōkan from 1989 to 1996. (via Wiki)
The manga was also adapted into an anime film by Studio 4°C in 1998.
