posted on by Egan Loo
Fuji TV announced at its +Ultra panel at Anime Expo on Saturday that the first half of the 24-episode Carole & Tuesday anime will play worldwide on Netflix on August 30.
The anime premiered on Fuji TV's +Ultra programming block on April 10. The show also premiered on Netflix that same week in Japan only, with new episodes streaming on Thursdays on Netflix. The second half of the series will premiere in Japan on July 13 with new opening theme song "Polly Jean" by Nai Br.XX and Celeina Ann (the singing voices for Carole and Tuesday, respectively) and the new ending "Not Afraid" by Alisa (the singing voice for Angela).
The series marks the 20th anniversary of BONES and the 10th anniversary of Flying Dog. The Anime Expo panel screened the show's first episode.
The anime's 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...
Shinichiro Watanabe (Cowboy Bebop, Kids on the Slope, Terror in Resonance) is the show's supervising director, Motonobu Hori is directing the anime, and Tsunenori Saito (Blast of Tempest, Sword of the Stranger) is designing the characters for animation. Canadian artist Mocky is composing the background music. The staff also includes Eisaku Kubonouchi (Chocolat, "Hungry Days" commercials) as original character designer, Aya Watanabe (Carnation, Josee, The Tiger and the Fish) as scriptwriter, and Flying Dog as in charge of music production. The anime is collaborating with synthesizer and keyboard brand Nord and guitar maker Gibson.
