Kodoani.com – The official website for the TV anime adaptation of the manga AI no identity (The Genes of AI) by Kyūri Yamada revealed on Friday that the anime will premiere in July.
The sci-fi manga is set in the near future, when nearly 10% of the population are “humanoids” – human-like robotic artificial life. Human figures are accepted as a social fact, but they suffer from their own problems and illnesses. The story focuses on the human Hikaru Sudō, a doctor who specializes in humanoids.
Yuzo Sato (Police in a Pod, Akagi, Kaiji) is directing the anime at Madhouse. Ryunosuke Kingetsu (Police in a Pod, Samurai Girls, Gakuen Utopia Manabi Straight!) is supervising and writing the scripts for the anime series. Kei Tsuchiya (Police in a Pod, Laidbackers) is designing the characters and is also the chief animation director. Takashi Ohmama (Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch From Mercury) and Natsumi Tabuchi composed the music.
