ESTAB LIFE: GREAT ESCAPE
Aired Wednesdays on +ULTRA from April, 2023 (re-broadcast)
What is the world of EstabLife?
In the distant future, the global population has reached its peak and then begun to decline. Humanity created AI to manage the ecosystem and launched experiments in “human diversification” in order to ensure the prosperity of their species. They created a diversity of human subspecies, including standard humans, therianthropes, and magi, through genetic modification and constructed numerous walled towns called “clusters,” each of which possesses its own unique culture. The inhabitants of the clusters are suited to these diverse environments, where they live under the supervision of AI to ensure their survival.
EstabLife is an original plan from the mind of Goro Taniguchi. It will unfold a wide variety of stories across an anime TV series, a smartphone game, a theatrical anime film, and more.
“Is your life hard? Just run away.”
In the far future, humans have added therianthropes, cyborgs, magi, and other diverse forms to its existing range of appearances. The districts of Tokyo have become “clusters,” numerous zones controlled by AI and surrounded by high walls. Free passage between clusters has been cut off, and each one has developed its own unique culture and outlook. People live happily according to the sensibilities of the clusters in which they were born.
But not everyone is able to adapt to life in their own cluster, and there are people who make their living helping them “escape” to other clusters. Those who take requests from people who want to run away and use every means at their disposal to outsmart the AI and make forbidden migration between clusters possible are called “extractors.”
Run, run, run away! This is the story of five extractors who lend a helping hand to anyone who wants to escape!
