The British anime distributor Manga Entertainment revealed through its Twitter account on Saturday that it licensed the 2009 original video anime (OVA) TO from director Fumihiko Sori.
Sori adapted two stories from Yukinobu Hoshino's 2001 Nights (2001 Ya Monotogari) manga. "Symbiotic Planet" and "Elliptical Orbit" are part of Hoshino's centuries-long storyline about mankind's voyages into space.
In the past, Sori produced the first computer-animated Appleseed film and directed Ichi, Ping Pong, and Vexille - 2077 Isolation of Japan. Jun Fukuyama and Aya Hirano lead TO's voice cast as Ion and Ariina, respectively. Sori is now directing the anime film version of BioWare's Dragon Age role-playing games.
