Cartoon Network in the Asia Pacific region will run an original animated series inspired by anime and card games titled Exchange Student Zero beginning in 2015. The series is being animated out of Australia's Bogan Entertainment Solutions. A television movie version previously premiered in Australia last year.
Cartoon Network describes the story:
300 super-powered cards. Two different worlds. One crazy adventure. Exchange Student Zero is a series where fantasy becomes reality, when the dark forces from a tactical anime card game are unleashed on our world. The good news? The most powerful card in the deck, Hiro, is on our side. The bad news? Two 12-year-old boys are running the show! Their attempts to explain away Hiro as an exchange student are bizarrely successful – with the adults at least – despite the havoc he creates. Civilization as we know it might be teetering on the edge but rest assured our heroes are on the case… as long as they can fit it in between bin duty, an errant older sister and the eternal quest for a date.
The full series will run for 13 episodes. The series is Cartoon Network's first Asia-Pacific animated series to air internationally.
