Humanoids and humans are much alike than you think in the world of ‘AI no Idenshi.’ Instead of being treated as robots, humanoids are given problems and illnesses of their own, just like an average person would have.
Mangaka Kyūri Yamada created this manga in 2015, which became a well-known name in the sci-fi genre. The original series might have ended in August 2017, but the franchise still has plans for it.
Madhouse has revealed that it will adapt Kyūri Yamada’s sci-fi manga, ‘AI no Idenshi’ (The Genes of AI), as a TV anime and has released a teaser for the same.
It follows a human doctor Hikaru Sudō who narrates how humans evolved from creating fire to humanoids being 10% of the world’s population. The trailer animates some panels from the manga’s first few chapters with a monolog by Hikaru.
While the video establishes that humanoids live peacefully with humans, we soon get to the dark side of it. It is shown that humanoids suffer from their own diseases and can’t be saved from certain situations.
A new key visual from the franchise features Hikaru looking at a baby in a womb with the tagline ‘This is the story of our future….’
