Even if you’re a longtime anime fan, you’ll be forgiven if you’re not familiar with this upcoming series. Though it’s one that many fans should be excited about. After all, this anime is based on the Phoenix manga by Osamu Tezuka, the creator of Astro Boy who is known as the God of Manga.
The series’ premise is described as:
“Phoenix: Eden17 will take audiences on an extraterrestrial adventure with Romi and her partner George as they flee earth for a new start on Eden17. While the promise of a utopia-like future beckons, reality hits hard when the pair arrive to discover nothing more than a desolate frontier incapable of supporting human life. With no way home and Romi discovering she’s pregnant, the couple have no choice but to try and survive – sourcing water and cultivating fields as best they can. However, just as things start looking up for the pair, George is killed in an accident. With Romi and her child Cain now alone, Romi enters a hibernation pod, promising her son she’ll wake up in 13 years to make sure he’s not alone forever. However, the system malfunctions and Romi awakens on Eden17 1,300 years later.”
As for its cast, the anime stars:
- Rie Miyazawa (The Moon, The 13 Lords of the Shogun) as Romi
- Yosuke Kubozuka (Sin Clock, Long Love Letter) as George
- Honoka Yoshida (Dai Byoin Senkyo) as Com
