Netflix will begin streaming ID-0, World Cosplay Summit's original anime project, on October 6.
The anime premiered on Tokyo MX on April 9, and also aired on Sun TV, KBS Kyoto, and BS11. The series is streaming exclusively on Netflix in Japan, but has not yet debuted overseas. The show's complete Blu-ray Disc and DVD box set shipped on August 29.
In the story, I-Machines are the general term for robots that operate in extreme environments. While Alliance Academy student Maya Mikuri is in the middle of operating an I-Machine, she gets involved in an incident with pirates, and ends up serving as a crew member on an excavation company's spaceship.
Goro Taniguchi (s-CRY-ed, Code Geass, Active Raid) directed the series at Sanzigen. Yousuke Kuroda (My Hero Academia, Mobile Suit Gundam 00, Gundam Build Fighters) supervised and wrote the series scripts, Kanetake Ebikawa is credited with "mechanic character design," and Hiromi Kato adapted Range Murata's original character designs for animation. Fumihiro Katagai, Takeshi Takakura, and Takayuki Yanase designed the mecha, and Seiichi Shirato is credited as a researcher.
Sayaka Sasaki performed the opening theme song "ID-0," and Hironobu Kageyama performed the ending theme song "Stellar Compass."
