Steampunk-adventure series to replace 07-Ghost.
ZEN Otaku Honbu has learned that the supernatural anime Letter Bee (Tegami Bachi) will have its Asian Premiere on ANIMAX in the middle of August.
The series will be aired on ANIMAX starting August 16 (Tuesday) and air Weeknights at 07:30pm MNL, replacing 07-Ghost.
In Amberground, a dangerous world of perpetual twilight, postmen known as ‘Letter Bee’ deliver letters and packages with the ‘hearts’ – feelings and emotions – of people separated from their loved ones. To make their deliveries from town to town, the Letter Bee has to avoid Amberground’s deadly giant, armoured insect-like beings which feed off human ‘heart’ that resides in these letters and packages.
Lag Seeing, an orphan seemingly abandoned by his mother, is taken as a ‘package’ by Letter Bee Gauche Suede to his aunt in another town. Growing up under the care of his aunt, Lag’s affection and admiration for Gauche inspires him to become a Letter Bee to carry mail through the dangerous wastelands in the way that Gauche saved him.
To fulfil his own ambition and in the hope that he will one day find out why he was abandoned by his mother, Lag makes a trip to the capital to take the examination to become a trainee Letter Bee. En route, he meets the strange, powerful girl-like being, Niche, who becomes his travelling companion, and so begins his adventures as a Letter Bee in his own right. (ANIMAX)

The first season of the anime series first premiered in Japan on October 2009, and has 25 episodes.
