Netflix has announced that they will soon be streaming a new 4-episode anime mini-series titled Eden. It’s going to be science fiction series with Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood’s Yasuhiro Irie as its director. They also released a teaser visual for the upcoming anime.
Justin Leach will be the show’s producer, with Qubic Pictures and CGCG producing the animation. Meanwhile, Cowboy Bebop and Noragami’s Toshihiro Kawamoto will be working with Napping Princess’s Christophe Ferreira for both the character and concept designs. Kimiko Ueno will be responsible for writing the screenplay.
Here’s how Netflix describes the anime’s story:
The upcoming sci-fi fantasy series Eden is set thousands of years in the future, where a city known as “Eden 3” is inhabited solely by robots whose former masters vanished a long time ago. On a routine assignment, two farming robots accidentally awaken a human baby girl from stasis questioning all they were taught to believe — that humans were nothing more than a forbidden ancient myth. Together, the two robots secretly raise the child in a safe haven outside Eden.
This first look at the new anime EDEN is downright stunning, plus I just learned that it'll be directed by Yasuhiro Irie who worked on (both!) Full Metal Alchemist anime. Cannot wait to check out this four-episode series in 2020. pic.twitter.com/4Pl6JiYMwM— NX (@NXOnNetflix) April 14, 2019
