“I don’t think we can add a season to the story, even if it’s a compelling and critically acclaimed adaptation.”
Kodoani.com – The screenwriter duo of Vivy -Fluorite Eye’s Song– is Tappei Nagatsuki (Re: ZERO -Starting Life in Another World-, Warlords of Sigrdrifa) and Eiji Umehara spoke in an interview for Mipon about the possibility of a second season. They said that the stories were planned to be completed with one season, so they did not feel that the story could be continued with a second season.
“Both Umehara-san and I felt that things ended pretty well, so it wouldn’t be okay to force the story to continue any further,” commented Nagatsuki. “I don’t think we can add a season to the story, even if the first is a hit and critically acclaimed.”
However, the writer mentioned that if there is enough demand, they can create a drama CD or an OVA. He also suggested the potential to create a side story unrelated to the main plot that could focus on things like Vivy’s secret sisters or sealed singularities.
The interview also revealed another fact about the expected story length of the anime. Although conceived as a one-season anime, the anime is slated to have 13 episodes instead of 12. Nagatsuki said that he and Umehara begged the producer to add one more episode after two difficulties encountered with the storytelling of the first two episodes. first in a single set. “It would be nearly impossible to put everything into 12 episodes,” commented the writer.
The authors previously shared the story of creating the anime in a roundtable discussion posted on the anime’s official website ahead of its release. The series premiered in Japan on April 3.
The anime origin story began as a concept novel co-written by Nagatsuki and Umehara, which was later adapted into an anime. The anime takes place in “Nialand”, where “dream, hope and science” exist together as an AI theme park. The theme park is where the first autonomous humanoid AI was born. Vivy is an AI that sings on stage to those who attend the park every day, as it is her directive to “make people happy through song.” She performed wholeheartedly for the attendees in the park. One day, an AI named Matsumoto appeared in front of her. The guy said that he came from 100 years in the future with the directive to “work with Vivy to correct history and prevent the war between AI and humans from breaking out 100 years from now.” The 100-year journey of female singer AI Vivy begins.
