The official website for the upcoming TV anime Charlotte, based on the original story by Jun Maeda (AIR, CLANNAD, Angel Beats!), has posted two new main visuals with totally different tones, and also announced its premiere schedule in Japan.
July 4: Tokyo MX (24:00-), Tochigi TV (24:00-), Gunma TV (24:00-), Chiba TV (24:30-),
TV Saitama (24:30-), MBS (25:58-), Tulip TV (24:50-), BS11 (24:00-)

Charlotte is the second original TV anime project for Maeda to work with P.A. Works and character designer
Na-Ga following Angel Beats! in 2010. Maeda also writes the scenarios for all episodes. The OP song "Bravely
You" is sung by Lia, best known for her performance for "Tori no Uta," the LA-recorded theme song for Key's
2000 game AIR. Meanwhile, the ED song "Yakeochinai Tsubasa" (The Wings that Won't Be Burned Down) is
performed by Aoi Tada, who previously sang "Brave Song," the ED song for Angel Beats!. Both songs are
written/composed by Maeda. It is also confirmed that Maaya Uchida's character Yusa Nishimori will perform
as the vocalist of a girls band in the show, How-Low-Hello.
