- It's been eleven long years since Mitsuo Iso treated us to the masterpiece that is Dennou Coil. Today, he took to twitter to announce his new anime is coming! It is titled "Chikyuugai Shounen Shoujo" (Boys and Girls Outside of Earth. Please note that this is not an official title of the series.) and is completely original.
- Iso also announced that he would be directing this series and penning the script. For character design, he has brought in Kenichi Yoshida (Eureka Seven) and will be working with SIGNAL.MD to animate the series. It was not revealed if this series is going to be a television anime or movie at this time.
- The story is the following:
The year is 2045 and both the internet and AI have spread to space. Boys and girls have just arrived to the Japanese commerce station. However as soon as they do, they find themselves caught up in a large-scale space accident where for some reason, only the children are left behind. ‘We can’t rely on the adults to save us now! Their lifeline is a barely functioning narrowband along with social media sites and a free app that allows them to control drones and other things via smartphones and low-level AI. Can these middle school students somehow manage to make free use of these tools and weather this situation to survive!?
Ahhhhhhhh Dennou Coil was so good!!! This is fantastic news!
I can't wait till we live in a society like the one in it.
