Netflix shows no signs of stopping when it comes to producing new anime.
The streaming giant’s latest anime project, announced today, is called Eden. It’s a four-episode series directed by Yasuhiro Irie (Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood). It’s set to hit the streaming service in 2020.
Other staff members include producer Justin Leach (Kick-Heart), screenwriter Kimiko Ueno (The Royal Tutor), designers Toshihiro Kawamoto (Cowboy Bebop) and Christophe Ferreria (Napping Princess), and composer Kevin Penkin (Made in Abyss). The series is being animated at Qubic Pictures and CGCG.
Here’s how Netflix describes the anime:
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.
