P.A. Works revealed on Thursday that the Kuromukuro television anime series will be two cour and will have 26 episodes. The anime premiered in Japan on Tokyo MX on April 7. The anime celebrates the 15th anniversary of the studio.
Netflix had announced on April 7 that it had the exclusive worldwide streaming rights to the anime. The announcement stated that Netflix will stream the series in other countries at a later date, but did not give any other specifics about streaming debuts outside of Japan. The website is currently streaming the series with English subtitles on Netflix in Japan.
The anime takes place in Toyama Prefecture (the location of P.A. Works' studio), and features the TATE mountain range in the prefecture as well as other famous locales. The robot research institution in the show is located near Toyama Prefecture's famous Kurobe Dam. The anime's story takes place in summer 2016. During the original construction of the dam, an ancient artifact was discovered, and so the United Nations Kurobe Research Institute was established. Intellectuals from all over the world gathered to study the object, and the children of those researchers attend Mt. TATE International Senior High School, including the institute head's daughter, Yukina Shirahane. The story begins when a lone samurai once again awakens.
