Music and mecha collide in a fashion that threatens to rock your face off in a new key visual and a new trailer for LISTENERS, an upcoming original TV anime that celebrates the history of rock-and-roll as viewed through a science fiction lens. The preview video (below) introduces the main characters and the setting for the series.
Funimation describes the story of LISTENERS as follows:
From MAPPA (Terror in Resonance, Yuri!!! on ICE), Listeners takes place in a world where the entire idea of music vanishes from existence. The story follows Echo Rec (Ayumu Murase), a young teen who comes across μ (Rie Takahashi), a girl who, oddly enough, has an auxiliary port on her body. Together, they’ll work to rock the foundation of society and bring music back to the world.
LISTENERS is directed by Hiroaki Ando and features animation production by MAPPA. The series will broadcast in Japan beginning in April of 2020 as part of the Mainchi Broadcasting System / Tokyo Broadcasting System / BS-TBS "animeism" programming block. The series has also been licensed for distribution in the United States by Funimation.
