Mugen no Ryvius
genre: Science Fiction
In 2137, a massive solar flare (known as the Gedoult Phenomenon) gave rise to the Gedoult Sea a massive sea of plasma and gravitational flux which engulfed the Southern Hemisphere of the Earth. Eighty-eight years later, mankind has learned to live with the the Gedoult Sea becoming an everyday shadow in the sky.
16 year old Aiba Kouzi, wanting to become a ship's pilot, along with his younger brother Yuki and childhood friend Housen Aoi, all go on a training ship the Lieb Delta for hands on experience in their prospective fields. However, one month into the training, the Lieb Delta prepares to "dive" down to Sere One in the Gedoult Sea in order to repower. During the manoeuvre, the ship's trajectory suddenly changes and the ship starts to sink dangerously deep into the Gedoult Sea. However, in the panic and chaos, Kouzi and fellow students discover a secret hidden within the Lieb Delta. A great ship, the Ryvius.
The students and remaining survivors of the Lieb Delta, evacuate to the Ryvius. But will they manage to survive whatever lies ahead...?
Produced by Sunrise, Bandai Visual and TV Tokyo, Mugen no Ryvius consists of 26 TV episodes, 3 CD dramas, 3 fan disks, as well as CD soundtracks, novels, manga, and art books, and other merchandise.
Parental Guidance Advised - Psychologically intense, it has many parallels with the novel the Lord of the Flies. A fair amount of violence as well as characters struggling with the concepts of self preservation, survival, dealing with being in positions of power or authority, and dealing with disaster situations.
