Sentai Filmworks has announced its acquisition of Cluster Edge, a sci-fi series from Sunrise, the folks behind Gundam and Code Geass. The 25-episode TV series and 3 OVAs will be released through select digital outlets soon with a home video release on subtitled DVD to follow.
Masashi Ikeda (Mobile Suit Gundam Wing, InuYasha) directs, with character designs by Yoshihito Hishinuma (InuYasha) and Wan Komatsuda, and music by Takayuki Negishi (Tokyo Majin, RIN – Daughters of Mnemosyne).
Cluster Edge Academy isn’t just any school; it’s THE school, where the offspring of the elite come together to prepare for their roles running a world where artificial soldiers and religious sects are major factors in the battle for total control. Which may be part of why new transfer student Agate Fluorite doesn’t quite seem to fit in. It’s not just that Agate’s enthusiastic attitude stands out among the somber, brooding balance of the student body. There’s something about him that demands notice, even from jaded honors students like Beryl Jasper, and from the moment of arrival he’s been at the center of a series of mysteries that not even Agate understands. Because Agate’s not just another student, he’s part of a something so momentous, and dangerous, that the world that built Cluster Edge may not survive its passing.
