The Netflix platform has released a new promotional video for the original four-episode anime, Eden. The video maintains the release date scheduled for May 27 worldwide through the platform. It had already been announced that its debut was scheduled for the fall 2020 season (October-December), however, it was postponed for unspecified reasons.
Eden has been set for thousands of years in the future, where a city is known as “Eden 3” is inhabited only by robots whose former masters have long since disappeared. In a routine task, two agricultural robots accidentally awaken a human girl from stasis, causing them to question everything they have been taught about humans, which were nothing more than a forbidden ancient myth. Together, the two robots secretly raise the child in a safe place outside Eden.
