Sequel set 12,000 years after Shoji Kawamori's combining robot series
Original creator Shoji Kawamori (Macross, Escaflowne) will serve as the chief director for the series, and Yusuke Yamamoto (B Gata H Kei, Welcome to the NHK) will direct. Yoko Kanno (Cowboy Bebop, Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex) is again producing the theme song. Chinatsu Kurahana (Uta no Prince-sama - Maji Love 1000%) and Kana Ishida are drawing the original character designs that Ishida and Hirotaka Marufuji (Armored Core: Fort Tower Song) will then adapt for anime. Mari Okada (Black Butler, Wandering Son) is in charge of the scripts, and Satelight will again produce the animation along with 8-Bit.
The story of Aquarion Evol will take place 12,000 years after the first Aquarion television series at a city modeled after Hong Kong. A new cast of characters, piloting a new Aquarion robot, will fight enemies from another dimension. Kawamori has hinted that the characters might be reincarnations of Apollo, Silvia, and the other characters from the first series.
