Besides revealing the animation studio, the video gives us a good look into the anime and its setting. It’s set in a post-apocalyptic dystopian reality where a poisonous rain called Tears of the New Moon has wiped out most of the human race.

This mysterious and deadly rain also gave birth to deformed monster-like creatures, forcing the remaining people to flee. As time passed, these people built and settled in underground societies to protect themselves.

The main plot starts in the year 2222, when humans living in their underground haven, Amasia, run into an Artificial Intelligence called Magus. Being unfamiliar with the Magus, humans try to understand and coexist with them, leading to many discoveries and adventures.

The main characters, Noir, Ciel, and Schnee, are all Magus, indicating that the story might focus more on AI. However, we still don’t know much about the anime, and the franchise might be planning on introducing more things.
