Netflix describes the anime:
In the immediate future, a giant meteorite has collided with earth. All living organisms, including mankind, have been wiped off the face of the planet. The government, who had foreseen this outcome, took measures to counter the worst-case scenario called Project 7SEEDS, in which five sets of seven young men and women were carefully selected and placed into teams. Each participant sought ways to survive on a deserted island.
Tamura launched the series in 2001 in Bessatsu Shōjo Comic magazine, before eventually moving it to Monthly Flowers. The series ended in the magazine in May 2017. The original manga's 35th and final volume shipped in August 2017, and a limited edition included a drama CD. Tamura launched the 7SEEDS Gaiden spinoff manga in August 2017 and ended it in October 2017. Shogakukan released a compiled book volume in January.
