The summer 2014 anime series Charlotte saw its single-version discs release back in 2015 and 2016 where it ran for seven volumes for its fourteen episode run. And with the Blu-ray discs coming in at about 7,500 yen each, that was one pricey series to pick up. Now, several years after finishing out the final volume in early 2016, Aniplex Japan has scheduled a complete box set for it. It’s planned for an October 14th, 2020 debut where it’ll be priced at 24,000 yen. It’s been re-authored down to a three-disc set that includes all the extras from the singles.
The property is an original work from Jun Maeda and will have original character designs provided by Na-Ga, who did the designs for Angel Beats and Little Busters in their original works. The series will be animated by P.A. Works. We now know that Yoshiyuki Asai will be directing the series proper and that the character design adaptation will be done by Kanami Sekiguchi.
The characters in the series include Kouki Uchiyama as Yuu Otosaka, Ayane Sakura as Nao Tomori, Takahiro Mizushima as Joujirou Takajou, Maaya Uchida as Nishimori Yusa and Momo Asakura as Ayumi Otosaka.
Lia and Aoi Tada are performing the opening and closing songs respectively for the series with original creator Jun Maeda providing the lyrics and doing the composition for both songs. Background music for the series is being done by ZHIEND with Marina Nakamura doing the vocals for it and Maeda is involved in the composition there as well, though Hikarisyuyo is involved there as well. Both Lia and Tada have worked on some very popular shows before, from Angel Beats to Little Busters! and Air.
Plot concept: Set in a word in which a small percent of children manifest super powers upon reaching puberty, the series follows the Nouryokusha mono, power bearer, members of the “Hoshi No Umi” Academy student council as they help peers with problems arising from their abilities.
