Netflix is spoiling anime fans this week, with yet another teaser for one of its new original series, 7Seeds.
Hot on the heels of the news that Neon Genesis Evangelion is coming this June, Netflix is giving us a glimpse of another sci-fi epic. It follows the struggle for human survival, which begins after a sudden awakening; a group of young men and women chosen for the 7 Seeds project, created to prevent humanity’s extinction.
The story takes place in the immediate future, when a giant meteorite has collided with earth. All living organisms, including mankind, have been wiped off the face of the planet. The government, who had foreseen this outcome, took measures to counter the worst-case scenario with the titular project, which sees five sets of seven people placed into teams, finding ways to survive on a deserted island.
Netflix and Japanese animation studio Gonzo are teaming up for the anime, with Yukio Takahashi directing and Touko Machida on board as story editor. The cast includes Nao Touyama, Jun Fukuyama, Katsuyuki Konishi, Yoko Soumi, Kana Asumi, Akira Ishida, Aoi Yuuki, Kazuhiko Inoue, with character design by Yoko Satoh.
The series premieres later this year on Netflix. Here’s the teaser:
