Seven Seas Entertainment has announced that, through its Airship light novel imprint, it has acquired the license for the Vivy prototype light novel series by Tappei Nagatsuki, Eiji Umehara, and loundraw. Originally penned as a collaborative “concept novel” before production of the Vivy -Fluorite Eye’s Song- anime (available streaming through FUNimation), don’t miss this rich tale of an AI songstress and her 100-year mission to save humanity–from the writers of Re:ZERO and Chaos;Child.
Vivy, the world’s first autonomous AI, sings to bring joy to her audience as a cast member of NiaLand, Japan’s largest theme park. In this world, AIs have become integral to human life and exist to carry out their missions. One day, out of the blue, an AI claiming to be from the future approaches her, revealing that in one hundred years, advanced AIs will turn on the humans they once served, sparking a violent war to annihilate humankind. When he asks for her help in preventing the conflict, Vivy agrees to ditch the stage and take up the century-long mission against her kind in order to save humanity.
Seven Seas will publish the Vivy prototype light novel series for the first time in North America in print and (early) on digital platforms in single large-trim editions. Volume 1 will be released in print in August 2022 for $14.99 USA / $18.99 CAN as part of Seven Seas’ Airship imprint.
