2167, the Earth was catastrophically damaged by a nearby supernova that had exploded.

Discotek Media previously made a fun plunder into the old Geneon Entertainment catalog with the pickup of the Stellvia anime series. The company had set a September 25th, 2018 release for it where it was a Blu-ray release priced at $49.95 for the twenty-six episode run. This was an upscale release but is one working from the Japanese upscale that was done previously. The release will be bilingual in bringing the original Japanese language track with English subtitles along with the previously created dub.

Now, the distributor is bringing the show out through Crunchyroll for streaming, giving new life to this fun 2003 property. The series is now available for streaming in full in its original Japanese language with English subtitles for audiences in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa.

The series was directed by Tatsuo Sato and had Makoto Uno as the character designer for it with animation produced by Xebec.

The Japanese cast includes Ai Nonaka as Shima Katase, Takahiro Mizushima as Kouta Otoyama, Yuki Matsuoka as Arisa Glennorth, Fumiko Orikasa as Yayoi Fujisawa, Megumi Toyoguchi as Ayaka Machida, Mitsuki Saiga as Masaru Odawara, Naomi Shindoh as Leila Barthes, Rie Tanaka as Akira Kayama, Ryou Hirohashi as Rinna Kazamatsuri, and Yūji Ueda as Pierre Takida. The English cast includes Carrie Savage as Shima Katase, Johnny Yong Bosch as Kouta Otoyama, Kari Wahlgren as Arisa Glennorth, Kevin Hatcher as Kouta Otoyama, Andrew Watton as Kent Austin, Anne Loveman as Leila Barthes, David Lelyveld as Masaru Odawara, Julie Ann Taylor as Ayaka Machida, Marie Danielle as Rinna Kazamatsuri, , Michelle Ruff as Yayoi Fujisawa, and Richard Cansino as Pierre Takida.

Plot Concept: In 2167, the Earth was catastrophically damaged by a nearby supernova that had exploded. The explosion sent an electromagnetic wave of radiation that swept over the Earth. Now 186 year later, another more destructive wave, known as “The Second Wave”, is on it’s way to Earth…

15-year-old computer genius Shima Katase has been dreaming of going up into space longer than she can remember. So when given the chance to enter space piloting school she jumps at the chance. However, piloting is a lot more complicated than programming a computer. But what if she were to combine the two… Genius or troublemaker, Shima is certainly going to be making a name for herself among the faculty as the Second Wave approaches…
