Plot: The survival horror story begins when Mutsumi Oribe and her classmates are flying for a school field trip, and their plane crashes. They drift onto an island dominated by giant insects. The tagline for the anime is, "On that island … humans are merely insect fodder."
Anime producer Tatsuya Ishiguro stated in a video in February that the upcoming OVA is only the "prologue to the full anime project," and that there are "still many big developments in store." Ishiguro stated the staff will be launching a crowdfunding campaign in the future.
The anime will ship in Japan on DVD in a limited-edition bundle with the manga's sixth compiled book volume on June 20. Crunchyroll will stream the anime worldwide outside Asia.
Takeo Takahashi (Spice and Wolf, Aki Sora) is serving as chief director of the anime at Passione, and Shigeru Morita (Arpeggio of Blue Steel - Ars Nova) wrote the script. Takayuki Noguchi (Queen's Blade: Rebellion) is designing the characters.
Yasutaka Fujimi and artist group RED ICE launched the manga on Akita Shoten's Champion Cross website in 2014 before moving it to Akita Shoten's free manga website Manga Cross. Shu Hirose (artist for El Cazador de la Bruja, Sōkō Akki Muramasa: Minagoroshi manga) took over the art for the manga on December 27 due to RED ICE group's poor health.
The anime stars:
M.A.O as Mutsumi Oribe Rika Tachibana as Chitose Naruse Misato Fukuen as Ayumi Matsuoka Momo Asakura as Mami Miura Chiaki Takahashi as Misuzu Jinno

Dream: Next anime up to cover will be Dance in the Vampire Bund. Suppose a short anime will do for now following Chobits.

Dream: Not sure if I should be donning the nostalgia goggles or not giving a damn. Looks like the original Digimon Adventure series is getting a reboot airing starting in the Spring season.

Taka: I'll watch it if there's nothing catching my eye in Spring. winter 2020 was a weak anime season for me.

Dream: Wouldn't say it's all bad for me. Have a few titles holding my interest. Just it typically doesn't have as many major titles of note that would hold me over.

Dream: Done with Vampire Bund. Will be working on a review of it before I hop into the next Funi series. Hoping to get it up either tonight or tomorrow, depending on how lengthy my thoughts get.
