ANIPLUS Asia described the upcoming anime’s story:
NiaLand is an A.I. theme park that blends dreams with hope and science. Vivy was created as the world’s first autonomous humanoid A.I. to work as a cast member in the theme park. She gets on stage every day to sing, but she is not very popular.
“I want my singing to bring happiness to everyone.”
Vivy continues singing in hopes of one day achieving her goal of performing on the theme park’s main stage.
One day, an A.I. who calls himself Matsumoto appears before her. Matsumoto claims to be an A.I. from one hundred years into the future, and that his mission is to rewrite history with Vivy, in order to stop a war between A.I. and humans that would happen a century later.
How will the encounter between these two A.I.s with such different missions change the course of the future?
This is a story of I(Vivy) destroying I(A.I.)…
The one-hundred-year journey of an A.I. songstress named Vivy starts now.
Atsumi Tanezaki, who portrayed “Asako Natsume” in the romantic comedy anime My Little Monster, will portray the titular character “Vivy”, while Jun Fukuyama, who is known for portraying “Koro-sensei” in the action-adventure anime Assassination Classroom, will portray “Matsumoto”.
Kairi Yagi performs the opening song “Sing My Pleasure” as the singing voice of Vivy.
