The avalanche of Netflix original anime announcements continues with A.I.C.O. -Incarnation-, an original “bio science fiction” TV series with animation by Bones (My Hero Academia) and direction by Kazuya Murata (Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet).
Netflix describes the story of A.I.C.O. -Incarnation- as follows:
“You… are not human now.”
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?
A.I.C.O. -Incarnation- will be digitally distributed on Netflix beginning in the Spring season of 2018.
