posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The May issue of Kadokawa's Young Ace magazine revealed on Thursday that Carole & Tuesday, the new original anime by supervising director Shinichiro Watanabe (Cowboy Bebop, Kids on the Slope, Terror in Resonance) and anime studio BONES, is inspiring a manga adaptation by Morito Yamataka that will debut in the magazine's next issue on May 2.
The anime will premiere on Fuji TV's +Ultra programming block on April 10. The show will also premiere on Netflix on April 10 in Japan only, with new episodes streaming on Thursdays on Netflix. Netflix also has the exclusive worldwide streaming rights to the series, but the anime's website has not yet announced when the show will start streaming outside of Japan. The series marks the 20th anniversary of BONES and the 10th anniversary of Flying Dog.
Fuji Creative's website is listing the anime with a total of 24 episodes.
The website describes the story:
Fifty years have passed since mankind began migrating to the new frontier: Mars.
It's an age where most culture is produced by AI, and people are content to be passive consumers.
There's a girl.
Scrapping a living in the metropolis of Alba City, she's working part-time while trying to become a musician. She's always felt like something is missing.
Her name is Carole.
There's a girl.
Born to a wealthy family in the provincial town of Herschel City, she dreams of becoming a musician, but nobody around her understands. She feels like the loneliest person in the world.
Her name is Tuesday.
A chance meeting brings them together.
They want to sing.
They want to make music.
Together, they feel like they just might have a chance.
The two of them may only create a tiny wave.
But that wave will eventually grow into something larger...
