The official website of the Vivy: Fluorite Eye's Song original anime series unveiled main cast, production staff, and the first key visual (pictured) on Saturday. Production company Aniplex also posted the first promotional video.

The 13-episode television anime by Wit Studio will begin airing Tokyo MX, Tochigi TV, Gunma TV, and BS 11 on April 3 at 11:30 p.m., followed by Hokkaido Broadcasting, RKB Mainichi Broadcasting, Nagoya Broadcasting Network (Me-Tele), and Mainichi Broadcasting System (MBS).

Voice actress Atsumi Tanezaki (Mahoutsukai no Yome) is starring as the titular character Vivy, the first autonomous humanoid A.I in history whose mission is to make everyone happy with songs as a diva. Jun Fukuyama (Ansatsu Kyoushitsu) is voicing Matsumoto, an A.I that comes to Vivy from 100 years into the future with the mission to prevent a war between A.I and humanity, and partners with her to destroy A.I in process.

Synopsis
Nierland—an A.I complex theme park where dreams, hopes, and science intermingle. Created as the first-ever autonomous humanoid A.I, Vivy acts as an A.I cast for the establishment. To fulfill her mission of making everyone happy through songs, she continues to take the stage and perform with all her heart. However, the theme park was still lacking in popularity.

One day, an A.I named Matsumoto appears before Vivy and explains that he has travelled from 100 years into the future, with the mission to correct history with Vivy and prevent the war between A.I and humanity that is set to take place 100 years later.

What sort of future will the encounter of two A.I with different missions redraw? This is the story of A.I destroying A.I. A.I diva Vivy's 100-year journey begins.

now that we've gotten a PV and more of a synopsis, I'm a little more cautiously optimistic about it. It could be great, or it could be a hot mess with it's sci-fi plot and only being 13 episodes.

can trust that the production quality will be good w/ WIT at the helm, but if the writing and story isn't good, then that won't matter.

I thought this was gonna be another Netflix jailed anime, but Netflix isn't mentioned in the article...

Wit and Tappei? I'll watch it, but a one-cour sci-fi anime original never ends up being good. Was hoping for a 24 episode season :(

Mar 1, 6:09 PM by Reijtaun

I'm not really a fan of these type of anime but will check it out since it's by Wit.

Feb 28, 11:53 PM by Rickydory123

Another anime by Wit, that's great.

Feb 28, 3:08 AM by MegamiRem

One of the series that I look forward to the most in April and more because Wit studio and the creator of Re: zero are part of the Staff.

This will undoubtedly be one of the anime of the year .... or so I hope, I have high hopes for him.

Looks so freaking good. An original tv anime series is always welcome in my watch list (So manga nerds can't spoil anything). Dummies :(

Feb 27, 5:18 PM by Mirai34

I don't know... these type of sci-fi series usually end up being a disappointment.

Production wise, it looks alright (just fine, not outstanding). Character designs (for animation) look meh though.

The plot sounds like a mess, but let´s wait and hope. I don´t really care about Wit being the studio, but at least the animation looks more on their good side.

Hanebado looked really good but man was it bad. Not totally convinced by the director.

The premise and plot sounds interesting, the show looks good and the staff is overall quite solid, just not really sure about the director as I haven't heard good things about Hanebado. Anyway, looking forward to this!


Hanebado was a pretty good sports show, the main problem was controversial decisions for adaptation due to the fact that the manga drastically changed its style at some point.

This is Tappei's second non-rezero project over the past year, is he really serious about getting involved in creating original shows? And it again has a female protagonist.

Same as with the last batch of info - everything looks great, aside from the author of Re:Zero being involved. Shame.


Your gratuitous hate against Rezero's might have looked more serious if you weren't a Symphogay and Konosuba fan, lol.



Feb 27, 9:22 AM by RobertBobert

Solid staff, a fine concept, and I'm always willing to give the author of re;zero a chance, since Re;zero is just such a good work

Feb 27, 7:33 AM by NG_Chloe

My personal most anticipated series of spring ,
The synopsis give me ,Doraemon the movie nobita's steel troop vive and the art style is also great + re zero author is involved 🤯

Feb 27, 6:12 AM by VsauceDealer

Looks promising so far. I'm hyped, for an anime original I don't know yet whether I would like it or not.

Feb 27, 5:07 AM by Playay

Yeah... I don’t know. Will probably be a mess, still will check it out. Hopefully I’ll be proven wrong
