Extraterrestrial Children

(Chikyūgai Shōnen Shōjo)





In the year 2045, where the Internet and AI are commonplace even in space, and centers on a group of children stranded in space after a large-scale accident occurs in a space station. By using narrowband, social networking, and a drone that they can manipulate through smartphones and low-intelligence AI, they overcome many crises.



Anime director Mitsuo Iso announced at the Anime Central convention in May 2018 that he is directing and scripting Chikyūgai Shōnen Shōjo (Extraterrestrial Children), his first new original anime since 2007's Dennō Coil. Kenichi Yoshida (Eureka Seven, Gundam: Reconguista in G, Overman King Gainer) is drawing the character designs, and SIGNAL.MD (Napping Princess, Atom The Beginning, Recovery of an MMO Junkie) is animating the project.


Iso remarked that, "I'd been seeing less anime set in space, so I thought I'd make one myself. Space is no longer a faraway place that we can see only in science fiction, but a place we can now actually travel to. I wanted to portray a story of a group of children thrown into that environment as if it had actually happened."
