Magazine feature also reveals staffs, new anime art.
The February issue of the Kadokawa Shoten magazine Newtype, on sale Tuesday, has revealed the story outline of the upcoming anime series Eureka Seven AO.
The story is set on Okinawa’s isolated island of Iwado, which has seen a growing movement advocating a return to an autonomous government. Ao Fukai, a 13-year-old boy with a missing father, lives on the island with an old doctor named Toshio and is about to enter middle school. Ao’s mother was taken away a decade ago by unknown individuals. Naru Arata, Ao’s 13-year-old childhood friend and the story’s heroine, lives with her father, older sister, and grandmother. She has a “Yuta” power awakened within her due to an incident when she was young.
A mysterious entity called “Secret” suddenly appears and launches an attack on the Scub Coral lifeform on the island. In his fervent desire to protect the island, Ao launches a certain military FP called “Nirvash” aboard a Japanese military transport. (Written by Anime News Network)
