Anime director Shoji Kawamori, most well-known for the creative planning, mecha designing and overseeing for many of the Macross series, including the most recent Macross Delta, is working with studio Satelight once again on a new TV anime. The news was announced at the Anime Expo in Los Angeles, which began today (July 1st), but the project is yet to be given its title.
The show is planned to run for 26 full 30-minute length episodes, and the studio staff describe its story:
The new series is set in a near-future world where the boundary between human being and AI is vague. A rapid biological evolution, similar to “Cambrian Explosion,” is caused by one incident. This incident turns into the genesis of a new jostle for supremacy, and the influence of the evolution goes beyond biological framework and spreads to various kinds of materials and technologies. The era of massive evolution involving diverse existences, such as human, machines and biotechnologies, is coming. Characters fight an existential war in such a world.
