Animax Asia describes the anime:
Charlotte, rumoured to have been based on Maeda's own early life, is set in an alternate world where a few children come into unusual superpowers upon puberty. One of the colouful characters is Jōjirō Takajyō, who can move so fast he appears to be teleporting. There's also student singer Yusa Nishimori, who can communicate with the dead. The children are enrolled into Houshinomi Academy, which has its own student council for guiding those who encounter problems with their newfound abilities.
The protagonist, Yū Otosaka, an ill-mannered first-year transfer who uses his ability to possess another person's body for five seconds in order to cheat in his exams. When Yū meets school council president Nao Tomori, the fate of these extraordinary children begins to unravel. Will the youthful duo be strong enough to fight their destiny?
Animax Asia also began streaming a trailer for the series on Tuesday:
The official website of the anime series began streaming the anime's third promotional video on Wednesday last week, which features the opening theme song "Bravely You" by Lia.
Yoshiyuki Asai is directing the anime at P.A. Works from an original concept and scripts by Jun Maeda. Kanami Sekiguchi is adapting Na-Ga's original character designs. Lia is performing the opening theme song "Bravely You," and Aoi Tada is performing the ending theme song "Yake Ochinai Tsubasa." Maeda is composing and writing the lyrics for both songs. The band ZHIEND and the vocalist Marina are performing the background music. Maeda is also producing the background music compositions, and Hikarisyuyo is composing the songs.
Key is releasing the anime in celebration of its 15th anniversary, and the series will be Maeda's second original anime work, with the first being Angel Beats! in 2010. A special for the series has already aired earlier in June introducing the show's staff, story and characters.
