Netflix has revealed a teaser and extended clip from “A.I.C.O. Incarnation”, their upcoming original anime series that was animated by Bones (Psalms of Planets Eureka Seven) and directed by Kazuya Murata (Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet). The series, which will premiere in Spring of 2018, follows two students who live in a quarantine zone after a research experiment goes horribly awry.
Below is a teaser that also includes an extended clip from the series. In it, a group of people break into the quarantine zone in the hopes of getting a biological sample, which is apparently worth a lot of money.
In Japan in the year 2035, an accident known as the “Burst” occurs during a research project, spawning an out-of-control artificial life form called “Matter” that has spread throughout the Kurobe Gorge. The research city that was once hailed as the hope for humanity is cordoned off by the government. Two years later, 15-year-old Aiko Tachibana, who lost her family in the Burst, learns something unbelievable from Yuya Kanzaki, a new student at her school. A secret is hidden within her body, and the answer to the puzzle lies at the “Primary Point” that was the center of the Burst. When boy meets girl with the fate of humanity in their hands, what new truth will come to light?
Cheers to ANN for the poster.
