The first trailer for the upcoming TV anime series Eureka Seven Ao (Astral Ocean), airing in Japan from April 12, 2012. The anime is once again created by studio Bones, following their original sci-fi mecha anime series Eureka Seven from 2005, and the 2009 anime film Eureka Seven: Pocket Full of Rainbows. The new story is set in 2025, on Okinawa's isolated island of Iwado, which has seen a growing movement advocating a return to an autonomous government. Ao Fukai, a 13-year-old boy with a missing father, lives on the island with an old doctor named Toshio and is about to enter middle school. Ao's mother was taken away 10 years ago by unknown individuals. Naru Arata, Ao's 13-year-old childhood friend and the story's heroine, lives with her father, older sister, and grandmother. She has a "Yuta" power awakened within her due to an incident when she was young. A mysterious entity called "Secret" suddenly appears and launches an attack on the Scub Coral lifeform on the island. In his fervent desire to protect the island, Ao launches a certain military FP called "Nirvash" aboard a Japanese military transport.
