A.I.C.O. Incarnation is being produced by Bones, the studio most recently known for My Hero Academia. In Japan in the year 2035, an accident known as the “Burst” occurs during a research project, spawning an out-of-control artificial life form called “Matter” that has spread throughout the Kurobe Gorge. The series is intended to debut in Spring 2018.
Devilman Crybaby is based on the 1972 anime about an invasion of ancient demons into Earth. The protagonist, Akira Fudo, is told that the only way to repel the invasion is to use the demons’ power against them and resolves to become one with a demon to save his planet. The ten-episode show will be premiering in Spring 2018, as well.
