The Japanese television station Family Gekijyo revealed on Monday that Shoji Kawamori's Aquarion EVOL anime will begin airing in Japan next January.
Plans for Aquarion EVOL, the newest title in director Kawamori and Satelight's Aquarion robot anime franchise, were revealed in February. The Japanese production company Media Factory began streaming a teaser trailer for the new television anime in April, and two more trailers began streaming in August.
The story of Aquarion Evol will take place 12,000 years after the first Aquarion television series at a city modeled after Hong Kong. A new cast of characters, piloting a new Aquarion robot, will fight enemies from another dimension. Kawamori has hinted that the characters might be reincarnations of Apollo, Silvia, and the other characters from the first series.
